Cannot install service

nerdlenerdle Posts: 6Members ✭✭

Have got plexconnect working on win 10 and apple tv3.
Installed pywin32. (does it have to be a certain build)
service will not install. Error message is:
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Any ideas?

    If you use a python executable whose name is not python you need to change the files in folder support/Win (install, start, etc.) so that the correct executable name is used.

    Thanks for your reply

    So the batch files located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\PlexConnect-master\support\Win" have to be run through Python?
    Looking on a few you-tube clips and it's just a right click and run as admin.

    Having a bit of a brain fart.

    Changed the install.bat to this:

    @echo off
    "C:\Python27\python.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\PlexConnect-master\PlexConnect_WinService.py" install
    echo PlexConnect-Service installed

    All working.
