Reply To: Unable to start Firefly on Server 2003, receiving error 1053



It is Windows Home Server, and as it is built upon SBS I thought it would be worth mentioning it.

Do you mean firefly.log or the system log in Event Viewer? There is no firefly.log to view and the system log just throws out two errors.

First an event 7009: “Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Firefly Media Server service to connect.”

And then an event 7000: “The Firefly Media Server service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.”

And the errors appears as soon as I try to start the firefly server. No 30000 milliseconds waiting…
I have read about other people that have had success in running Firefly on WHS and thought I would give it a try.
