  • Launch program minimized

    When frodoplayer starts, I've told it to launch a batch file whitch launches a few programs. Now, this batch file starts above frodo, and is visivble for a few seconds. Is there a parameter to make frodo launch the batch file minimized?

      Code:
      @ECHO OFF
      Add that as the first line of the batchfile, and you won't see any output. You can also make a PIF for the batchfile that will make it run minimized.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        I will try a .PIF file... but the @echo off wont make the actual window disappear...

Now you have a batch file that launches silently when double-clicked but NOT from Director's "open" command for some reason, where it still insists on displaying a window.
          But frodoplayer cant launch a shortcut, and i can't get the pif file to work properly :s

                Make a file similar to this with a vbs extension.
                For example, my file is called "test.vbs"

                And tell fp to launch it.

                Replace "test.bat" in the code with the path to your batch file.

                Code:
                Dim WSH
                Set WSH = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
                WSH.Run "test.bat", 0
                This requires you have Scripting Installed, which, in all likelyhood you
                do.

                        what we want to achieve is to have MM ready in the background so if we hit the GPS button the map will be ready. (no MM logo or waiting for gps signal or all the things that happen when you hit the button)

                            so where "test.bat" is = MapMonkeylauncher.exe right?? no MapMonkey.exe because that is the tricky part I think...

                            Thanks Frodo.

                              "test.bat" is whatever program you need to run minimized.
