Having used Firefly for a couple of days, I suddenly found it had stopped running – and every time I tried to restart it I got the above message. Also the web administration interface would no longer open. Finally I decided to reinstall Firefly and this did the trick, until the following day when it happened all over again. I’m using Windows XP and Windows Media Connect. Can anyone help, please?
You might first try upgrading to latest nightlies (http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org) if you aren’t already at at least svn-1359.
To answer you question, though, you should be able to check your event viewer and see why it failed, or run it in debug mode (from start -> programs -> firefly media server) and look at the “firefly.log” in your program filesfirefly media server directory.
