I tried in on RC1 Windows last night without issue, but that's not a huge amount of testing.
What do your logs say?
And what does this mean:
I am also able to use other XSqueeze servers from the same PC... What am I doing wrong? Do I need to install SqueezePlay seperately?
Xsqueeze is designed to run as a single add on inside one xbmc - I am not really sure what would happen if you try and somehow run multiple copies...

Okay, the problem may be because when I first ran XSqeeze I did not click the "OK" button when I received the "FIRST RUN" pop up message. I think I was running XBMC in non full screen mode (was multi tasking and doing other things on the PC) and when I got back to XBMC it would not let me scroll down to the area where the "OK" button was. I'm pretty sure I clicked the back button. The "FIRST RUN" message says NOT to do this... So how do I get XSqueeze to ask again? I uninstalled the addon but that didn't seem to help as my settings were still there and it didn't ask on the first run.

You replied earlier than I thought. I edited my post to say Squeeze Client and not Squeeze server.

The first run thing you can hit ok/back on - it's onyl the settings bit you must hit 'ok' and not back or it won't save the settings - which may be your issue.
If you are running multiple slaves/clients, be very careful with MAC addresses as that s how LMS separates players. If you are using the same MAC with multiple players you will get issues.
And let me put it clearer:

Ok I deleted all the addon config files for XSqueeze in the Appdata/Roaming/XBMC folder and then re-installed. I am now able to connect to the Squeeze server but I only get a "Now Playing" window.
I configured XSqueeze to be a SqueezePlayer. Shouldn't I be able to browse my library? It seems like it is acting like a controller?
I just started with this so the server is setup with a really small library of like 10 songs. One server and one XBMC client.
Here's the XBMC debug log
I started up XBMC and went to XSqueeze right away.

Ok this has registered a new software player with your server. You now need to use the SB like controller at the bottom of your screen to actually navigate the SB menus and add some music and get it going. At the moment it's blank because there's nothing to display, just an empty playlist.

I may be misunderstanding the capabilities of what XSqueeze can do... When I run it there are no control at all.
I was able to play something on XSqueeze by initiating from the Squeeze server where I installed SqueezePlay (and then chose XSqueeze as the device to play on)
I was expecting to be able to browse the Squeeze server right from XBMC. Is that how it should work?

See the screenshot at the beginning of this thread? Those two green lines at the bottom are basically an embedded Squeezebox classic that you navigate with right/left, up.down and ok, just like on a real one. So yep you can browse it all, just using the classic SB type interface (although I plan for a separate browser window later).
- Bogi - 2012-02-29 05:48
Ok, So I figured out there are controls... just not as I expected. I figured out that if I used the arrow keys on my keyboard it changes the text on the bottom to control the plugin. I'll play around some more... and thanks for creating this addon!

No probs - I am guessing you never owned a 'classic' SB - otherwise it would be very very familiar to you.
