Install MinimStreamer on Windows 2016 Core - no network

RE: Install MinimStreamer on Windows 2016 Core - no network
Simon, thank you very much for your help.

I have now solved the problem by starting from your instructions.

I initially was not able to use MinimStreamer, probably due to the different way I run MinimServer on the Core and on the GUI environments.

- On the Core OS I haven't been able to install Java, even when using the "silent" installation. Therefore I have copied a portable installation of Java on my PC, and I am running Minimserver through the command line "java.exe "..\mserver.jar --set watch.view=console"

- On the GUI OS, where Minimserver/Minimstreamer are working fine, the command line I run is just "mserver.jar", since Java is installed properly and the jar file are associated to it.

- When I tried on the GUI OS to run Minimserver using the same command line of the Core OS, I could again play only wav files even on the GUI OS environment. I found that a brand new server was created and I noticed the minimserver.config file that was created on the same folder where I ran the command line.

What I did then was to install the minimstreamer package by using the console on the GUI OS (where the internet is accessible), define the "props" for transcoding and checked that on the GUI OS I was again able to play flac, mp3, dsf etc.

At this point, I copied again all the minimserver related files (from the installation folder, from the appdata/roaming folder) AND the minimserver.config file from to the Core environment.

Then switching to the Core OS I have a working set-up.

I am sure not all I have done was strictly necessary, but I am happy that with your help I am now able to make the switch to the core mode which I feel is definitely better sounding than the GUI.

Thank you again,
