I am having trouble with the Logitech Media Server software. It was running fine (v 7.7.1 I think) before I went away for a few days and turned everthing off. When I turned it on again, the LMS would no longer run. Diagnostics says port 3483, 9000, 9090 failed and possible software conflict found (but nothing listed). After a few attempts at starting it, I then was offered version 7.7.2. This didn't work any better.
I'm running LMS on a Windows 7 SP1 PC. Windows firewall is off and I'm running Microsoft Seciruty Essentials. Recently I had problems with the LMS not starting properly which I fixed by running it as administrator after consulting the slim devices forum. I see that many people are having similar problems as I am now, but I haven't seen a solution to it.
I have now removed 7.7.x and reinstalled version 7.6.1, which works.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Having just looked at one or two more posts with this problem, I noticed a comment about using other media server software. I use Media Monkey and have done so for a while without problems. I have recently started using Windows Media Centre in conjunction with a new TV. Could either of these be causing the conflict? If so, how do I confirm this? And how do I resolve it?

Thanks for the reply.
So, I rebooted and then reinstalled 7.7.2 which then worked. I had to run the control panel as administrator for it to run as a service.
I then ran Windows Media Server, which worked ok, as did LMS. I then stopped LMS and restarted it, at which point it would not run with the same problem about the ports not being usable.
So it looks like there is a conflict between Windows MS and LMS. How do I resolve that? Please don't tell me that the two are incompatible!

Seems if you startfirst then all is . Maybe just always use that sequence?
Inyou can change it's http port from 9000 to (whatever you wish), I use 9010. This avoids most any media server conflicts on port 9000, one of the most frequently used ports for such server programs. How you make those other ports not conflict w one another I dunno. Maybe just changing port 9000 may solve it.
> Settings > Advanced > Network > Web Server Port
Also, if you are not going to be using the/ portion you may as well turn that off (same page as port change).
