Ok after normal installation PMS still does not work from my system GUI (Windows7 Ultimate 64).
This is how I solved my issue:
From here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2484
I copied this code (Thanks Exsport) and edited the code to suit my system. I just copy the code in a text file (notepad) and save as PMS.cmd or PMS.bat (Save as type "All files (*.*))
- Code: Select all
taskkill /IM javaw.exe /T /F >nul 2>nul
cd D:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Media Server
start javaw -Xmx1198M -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.encoding=UTF-8 -jar pms.jar net.pms.PMS
remember to change the memory size -Xmx1198M to a lower value ie -Xmx786M if you have lower memory ....I have 6GB memory and use 2* PS3's.
Then edit the start and other icon properties to "D:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Media Server\PMS.cmd"
under the "Target" input. Also select "Run this program as an administrator" under compatibility
Then all works Ok again. Strange but true.
