    Second, i am a programmer by profession. Not that i am all-knowing, but i do have some skill in this area.

    Finally, i am looking for some information on getting the comServicesHost and the modules that come with it installed properly. For some reason i am unable to get any of the services to show (register?) in the servicesHost application.

    I have some programming i would like to experiment with. Things like a thumbs up and thumbs down to rank songs while they are playing. Once your library gets so large, it can become a problem keeping it all organized and cleaning out the bad songs. With a tivo like Thumbs scheme, it would be a LOT easier to manage this. I am thinking of a button to basically remove a song from active rotation as well. Something you may have collected, but not really had time to listen to. This way if you hear a song that you hate, you can just mash the "NUKEIT" button and review the bad ones later.

    I promise i will not be obtuse and will give back as much as i can. Please help me with this if you have the time.

    Anyway, there are lots of other ideas i have, but this is where i would like to start.

    Thanks again for a great platform and any help!


    I don't think my installer is registering FrodoComm itself correctly.
    Shut it all down and follow the directions in post 31:
    [Release] FrodoComm, and FrodoComm Services Host

    See if that helps.

    hmmmmm.

    I had already read post #31 and tried it as soon as i saw it. I should have mentioned that in the previous post. I also tried manually registering some of the services, but that did not work either.

    Your services host application shows running, disabled, and debug windows all blank.

    Color me

    My problem is now corrected

    The updated XML control appears to have corrected the issue.

    In summary:

    be more thorough than i was and CHECK ALL PRE-REQUISITES!

    I THOUGHT i has the right version of the XML parser, but i did not.

    Once i updated, all was fine.

    Maybe i could code a preinstall check for you Frodo?

    would save further issues of this type.

    Question: How to find currently playing song

    I have a VB.net app set up now receiving and broadcasting events and this seems to be working nicely.

    I adapted your windows message code to post the <skip to next song> message, and this seems to be working well too.

    How would i then ask the player for the name of the currently playing song?

    Side question: Is there a list of messages that the FPPLUG-REMOTE window responds to?

    Final question (for this post at least): I notice that the CommID is not unique? my app is assigned number 34 for instance, but there is a service with the same ID at the same time. Is this intentional?

    Getting close and am excited about the possibilities!

    Thanks again!

    The CommID should be a new number every time you start your app. Are you saying that there is another FrodoComm service with the same CommID?

    That's not possible. It changed, and he didn't query it right or update with member status.

    Has anyone had any problems in their app when using FrodoComm? Sometimes my app will hang upon execution and then I might receive a message "problem sending message to service" when I terminate it. At other times the app will come up fine, but after about 4 executions, it will hang. I have to terminate it. This is a very simple app that just sends a volume change message to the network and then terminates. I'm just curious if anyone has seen weird behavior like this?

    CommID

    I am not seeing duplicated CommID's any more. Not sure what i was doing wrong to see them before.

    I do however have a few ghost entries in the registered services list. I assume i got these by failing to call FC.EndProcessing() before my app terminates. Where are these entries stored? I would like to clean the errant ones.

    And I would really like to know how to query the name of the currently playing song.

    Thank you.
