Default Re: MeanLoader Server Startup - 08-11-2007

I'm trying to get the server loader to work on our new box, but for some reason it won't actually start anything. Even after a clean reinstall (turned off error reporting, ran loader_(un)install) and using the beta version to set core affinity, it still reports 'successfully' loading things but nothing shows up for some reason.

Here are the ini contents and some log output with the default processes. The only thing changed here is C:\WINNT\ --> C:\WINDOWS\ in both paths.

Code:
[Settings]
ServiceName = (mEAn) Server Loader
RestartInterval = 5000
NumberOfProcesses = 1
ServicePriority = Low
UserInterface = yes

[Process_0]
StartDir = 
ProcessName = calc
AppName = C:\WINDOWS\system32\calc.exe
CommandLine = 
AffinityMask = 1
StartPause = 1000
StopPause = 1000
UserInterface = Yes
AutoRestart = Yes
Priority = normal
Paused = No
Window = Minimize
NumOfRespChecks = 1
PrcFileLogging = Yes

[Process_1]
StartDir = 
ProcessName = notepad
AppName = C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe
CommandLine = 
AffinityMask = 1
StartPause = 1000
StopPause = 1000
UserInterface = Yes
AutoRestart = Yes
Priority = normal
Paused = No
Window = Minimize
NumOfRespChecks = 1
PrcFileLogging = Yes
Code:

The result of this is that I can find the server loader service in the services list (started, automatic) but calc and notepad aren't actually started, nor can they be found in the task manager list.
Previously I'd get all the server windows to nicely show up in the task bar, now nothing.

As for the machine itself: it's a Core 2 Duo 6600 with WinXP SP2, and it previously did work on a near identical machine with windows server 2003. I'm connecting to it with remote desktop, should that matter for process visibility.
