Maybe try the Roon Server app - you can still run the Roon client on the desktop but if you are running headless this a better solution.

thanks for the reply,

i already install the roon server and the problem i gues the windows server 2019 i use core not the GUI version . so the windows after bootup only the cmd windows like linux no menu bar or any GUI windows . i cannot right click the icon .


I might be wrong here, but the Core version of Windows Server does not have audio capabilities afaik.
That wont work with most music playback software, but unsure how Roon Core would like it.
Interesting project though!

Thanks mate , now everything is good
i can play my music use roon.

the only problem was i need login my music pc to start the roon.
