Elevation will interrupt current stream

  • Anonymous - 2012-03-24

    I was streaming from my iphone to the computer this morning, and this error popped up on the computer screen:

    Title: Shairport4w
    Body: Elevation will interupt current stream
              Are you sure?
                       Yes     No

    That error/warning did interrupt the stream. (which is why I walked downstairs to see it on the screen :) )
    Does anyone know what that error means?  I said yes, but that just seemed to open the settings screen in shairport4w.  It went back to working, but I found it odd that it popped up in the first place, and I don't know how to interpret the message.

    "Elevation" is part of the "User Account Control"


    Software will be restarted with Admin privileges. This happens choosing "Advanced…" menu item. Or the clicking "Change…" button.

    Ok, that helps a little, but still doesn't explain why it popped up in the first place.  I was listening to a stream.  There was nobody using the computer, so nobody hit the "advanced" or "Change…" buttons.  The computer in question is a server in my basement.  Not one that anyone ever uses interactively.
