  • External Apps Temp Solution (Hack)

    Here is a hack for those having problems launching certain programs
    in MediaEngine.

    UPDATED !!
    Now v 1.1.0


    Here is LMF 1.1, Now for MediaCar and MediaEngine.
    Code:
     2004 Kevin Lincecum
    frodo |at| frodoplayer.com
    Launch ************ ! v. 1.1.0
    
    Usage:
    
    Make a seperate directory for each app you want to launch.
    (Seperate LMF instances, ie. a whole new directory with all the files in this release.)
    
    Edit the LMF.INI file with the path to the program you want to launch.
    
    [MAIN]
    COMMANDLINE=C:\Program Files\XM Satellite Radio\XMMT.exe
    COMMANDLINEOPTIONS=127.0.0.1 /q /s /r2d2
    UNLOAD=FALSE
    
    You should set UNLOAD=TRUE for MediaCar and set UNLOAD=FALSE for MediaEngine.
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    For MediaCar
    Make a folder in the launch folder.
    Example: XM
    Make an XM.JPG in that folder.
    Make and XM.INI in the folder.
    In your XM.INI point it to an instance of LMF.EXE
    
    Example
    [GENERAL]
    PATH = C:\Program Files\MediaCar\LAUNCH\XM\LMF.EXE
    TryEmbeddedTimeOut = 5
    WindowSearchString=
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    For MediaEngine:
    Add LMF.EXE to your applications section in MediaEngine.
    
    Notes: Closing this app will NOT close the app you launch.
    You must close the called app manually.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    
    Have Fun,

      It would be nice if someone could test this and verify it works on a system other
      than mine....

              In case you didn't realize it Frodo it is your fault that no one is testing this. You are the one that made FrodoPlayer that caused so many people to switch. Shame on you.

                  Frodo, I'm gonna test this tomorrow, it looks like a newer version than the one you made about 2 weeks ago. You've been coding like a mad man lately.

                      WORKS!!!! AWESOME!!! Took me awhile to figure it out, I was trying to launch the way you made the first version of LMF (adding the INI to the command line). Now I just gotta go and change the LMF.exe icon to the Routis icon and I'll be all set. You are the man!

                          Just used an Icon editor and changed the LMF icons to the Routis ones, now everything looks and works like it should in the MediaEngine Ext. Apps menu. Thanks again!

                            You're welcome. I just hope other people can get as much use out of it.
