Ok this is a known issue with None English OS.
To fix this you can try and install the SignagePlayer in c:\program files\SignagePlayer.
Now I know you do not have a c:\program files... more like programa files or something and that is the cause for the bug.
So, if you get an English XP or try and create the c:\program files dir and install under it, you should be ok.
Of course you can also get Ubuntu and use it as well (English version, FREE).

Yea, mine is C:/Arquivos de Programas
That makes sense, thanks for the help, i'm going to try and install it on c:/program files, but as we speak i'm downloading unbunto in english.

I have this same issue on all my PC's running signage controller and airplayer. 2 of them are laptops, Vaio's with AMD Dual Core 2.3 Gz, English running Windows 7. One is a PC running Vista. I have updated versions of all mediaSignage software. Each player endlessly acts like it is starting then goes away. Very annoying, only restarts if I open task manger and manually kill signage controller and the player when it pops up, then it restarts again correctly until the next time the computer goes to sleep. Thoughts?

You need to make sure you kick off the SignageController from it's working directory and not from any other location. Using a shortcut is fine as well..
