I am trying to install Yahoo Music Jukebox on a Win 2003 application server. I was able to successfully install on a Win XP client, so I know that therea re no firewall issues preventing the install. The file downloads, and begins to execute, then I get a message that the install was unsuccessful. The install file from yahoo is attached below.  ymjsetup.exe was renamed as a .zip file
ymjsetup.zip

It is not designed to run on a server OS like W2003 server.  EVERYTHING with yahoo is directly from a cleint computer to their website.  They specifically disallow any server OS from caching their data and serving it to clients on a network.  They want each individual PC to connect directly to their yahoo website.

I never would have thought that. I am curious, how did you find that out?

What player would you recommend to fulfill my needs:

1. I use thin clients to login in to the network application server
2. MP3 files are stored on a shared network drive on a file server
3. Must be able to store playlists on a shared network drive, not on the root drive.

Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

Since yahoo bought out musicmatch they destroyed its compatibility with everything.

Ahave you checked out Media Monkey or any other mp3 solution?

I would recommend VLC media player, it is FREE, and it always works, where Windows MP does not.

I have tried MEdia Monkey. It is very bad at tag lookup and re-naming files.
I looked briefly at VLC player. Will it support 2 or more separate libraries and make multiple playlists?
