I'd like to use WOL function from KODI (on QNAP installed). First step for me was to use the service (instead of starting server_wmc with GUI) because I need the server without log on to windows.

Using the serverWMC.exe the kodi can connect to serverwmc but using the service doesn't work. Kodi doesn't start to download any information from server.

Strange: The service has status "wird gestartet" (will be started) instead of "gestartet" (running). I tried both configurations in the service properties: a) start automatically and b) start automatically with wait.

After stopping the service and manual start the status of service will change into "gestartet" (running) but the problem is still the same: It seems like Kodi cannot connect to the server wmc software using the service.

Are there known issues and tricks to get it run?

Thank you in advance,

P.S.: This is the log after restarting the service: http://pastebin.com/2xctFqRx
