Install Modification

Post by AnnieBody » Sun May 10, 2020 11:03 pm

As a previous user of Serviio for many years I knew this needed the windows service to be installed and running.
When installing UMS I automatically checked this option as I thought it would work in similar way to Serviio.
This gave me problems with two instances running: the service and the task bar.
Having disabled the service, UMS now runs as expected.
It appears the service is a legacy component that UMS no longer requires.

May I suggest you advise that the service is not required by UMS during the install. It would save new users a lot of hassle and minimise the assistance needed.
