How to configure PMS when running as a Windows service?

Postby dsuchter » Tue Apr 21, 2009 8:09 pm

I have PMS 1.10.51 installed on my Vista x64 host and it works quite well when I run it manually, given the configuration tweaking I've done. However, when I run it as a Windows service it seems to run with some sort of default config. Can someone explain (or point me to docs) about how to configure PMS when running it as a service?

once i did it i faced a lot of troubles and couldn't make it work.

then i added PMS to the programs that launched upon start up and that's it.

Running it as a service is very simple when you know how! :P

1)Just install the service
2)Close PSM
3)Kill process if still running
4)double click "C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\win32\service\wrapper.exe" and add it to your firewall exclusions.
5)REBOOT, and really really mean REBOOT, simply restarting the process does not work...the mysteries of windows are boundless

It should work. Do not add the file manually to the exclusions (add button in firewall management)...for some obscure reason Windows will have nothing of it. You really need to run the wrapper.exe and let windows ask you if you want to add the file.
