    Hello Forum,
    has anybody tested NAS on Win Vista successfully?
    I got an error on starting up nas daemon.
    But perhaps it has nothing to do with Vista.
    I downloaded the 1.8 bins from the Wiki download link.
    here is the error message:

    Error binding unix socket: /tmp/.sockets/audio0
    : Bad file description

    Fatal server error

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

      It's possible this directory does not exist.  To my knowledge, no one has tried nasd on Vista.  You might try running nasd with the '-pn' option, which tries to run anyway if it could not bind to all of it's transports.

      Hello Jon,
      of corse the directory on an windows box is not-existent.
      the option -pn isn't working working. Same error message as above.
      How do I run this on WinXP?
      Lets compare this and transfer to vista.
      thanks a bunch.

      Well, I don't do much windows... The last time I tried a few months ago (for testing) was to simply run 'nasd -aa -b' in cygwin.  This worked fine.  I did not need to do -pn.

      Ok, using Cygwin as environment makes sense. There you have /tmp/.socket available.
      Is there no possibility to run NAS native on windows systems?
      thanks.

      Sorry, not without a native windows audio (server) backend.  I'd do it if windows were my primary OS, but...
