MM Server only works if MM 4 is running

Post by stf1 » Thu Apr 02, 2020 5:28 pm

Hello,

Background:
I am able to stream to my Android device via UpnP server from my PC in my local WiFi. I see MM Library and MM Server.
Issue:
As soon as I exit MM on my PC I can not stream anymore and MM Library and MM Server become invisible. I still can see the service is running via the windows 10 Services app, but can not stream. As soon as I run again MM again, everything works.

Isn't the point of the service that I do not need to run MM application?

Which version of MMW and are you sure the Service is installed as the same Windows User as you run MMW?

Thanks for the hint. I modified the service login (in Services) to run in my user account (this account) instead of the local system account - and now it works as it should i.e. as a service in the background :D

The reason is that the Service runs with the settings set in MediaMonkey and this is per Windows User.
