  1. This sounds great. I am afraid to install though, as I have SqueezeCenter running on the server as per the “pre-add-in” instructions and I’m not sure what will happen. Should I remove the existing install, and if so are there any “non-intuitive” steps, or is it as easy as removing with Add/Remove tool and possibly removingthe SqeezeCenter user?

    Anyone using this yet?

    Jason, I have been using the 7.4 versions. It works fine. You don’t need to uninstall the existing version first. You might want to read some of the discussion in the SlimDevices forums before you install, though. There is one open issue because it leaves all the old versions in your add-ins list.

    Jason,

    I tried that, you don’t need to uninstall the existing version first. I think you better try this..

    Any info on how this add-in is better than just adding SqueezeCenter as a normal Windows service on WHS (the pre-add-in method)? I’ve been running it this way for a few months and it works great.

    Why would one install the WHS version instead — does it just give you an administration pane in the WHS user interface, or is there more than that?

    Thanks!

    @DW: Functionally it is the same as running SC the old way, but it puts a page in the console which allows you to administer SC from the console instead of having to use RDC. (Stop/start the service, change ports, run cleanup tasks, open logs, etc.) Since WHS now has its own Squeezecenter build, there may be other optimizations in the future…. no telling.

    If the old exe install is working for you, just leave it until the WHS is final. 7.4 works great on my end too after 7.3.3 would not install for whatever reason.
