    See the extapps.ini in your Freeway directory. Then do a search for "extapp" in the skin.ini.

    take a look, this is what I have in that file

    [sol]
    exe=c:\windows\system32\sol.exe
    title=Solitaire
    killmenu=1
    xbutton=800,416

    [mycomp]
    exe=c:\windows\explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    title=My Computer
    killmenu=0
    xbutton=803,410

    [calc]
    exe=c:\windows\system32\calc.exe
    title=Calculator
    killmenu=1
    xbutton=800,5

    [radio]
    exe=C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\MediaPortal.exe
    title=Radio
    killmenu=0
    xbutton=782,414

    I don't see 'set hideonclose" should I add it to the file?

    Yes, make sure you're using build 128 and add it.

    I am running "128"
    I added the line to the file two ways (see below)

    [sol]
    exe=c:\windows\system32\sol.exe
    title=Solitaire
    killmenu=1
    xbutton=800,416

    [mycomp]
    exe=c:\windows\explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    title=My Computer
    killmenu=0
    xbutton=803,410

    [calc]
    exe=c:\windows\system32\calc.exe
    title=Calculator
    killmenu=1
    xbutton=800,5

    [radio]
    exe=C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\MediaPortal.exe
    title=Radio
    killmenu=1
    set hideonclose=1
    xbutton=782,414

    and then,

    [radio]
    exe=C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\MediaPortal.exe
    title=Radio
    killmenu=1
    xbutton=782,414
    set hideonclose=1

    still no go, the only way to close the program is to do a ctrl-alt-del. Here are some screen shots from my desktop.

    1. app closed (I closed the app and click the "x" but can't close the window)
    2. app running

    The "title" portion in the extapps.ini is the title of the window it's supposed to find.

    So, you should probably use:

    title=MediaPortal - Home

    I just noticed, you also have "set hideonclose=1" instead of just "hideonclose=1". Take out the "set".
