    Trouble Launching XM??

    Frodo,

    I'm having trouble launching XM from within FP. I've put the path of the app (C:\Program Files\XM Satellite Radio\XMMT.exe) in "path" and copied the command line options from the desktop shortcut and entered them. When I try to launch XM from FP nothing happens. When I remove the command line options, XM attempts to start but hangs at the startup window. When I launch from the desktop shortcut, everything works fine. Any thoughts of what I might be doing wrong?

    Thx
    MikeH

    For now you will need to use LMF:

    LMF 1.1 Released

    Your LMF.INI should look like:

    [MAIN]
    COMMANDLINE=C:\Program Files\XM Satellite Radio\XMMT.exe
    COMMANDLINEOPTIONS=127.0.0.1 /q /s /r2d2
    UNLOAD=TRUE

    Then tell FrodoPlayer to launch LMF.



    I will fix this problem in 1.09.

    I guess I'm a little surprised that no one else has had this problem. Are folks not launcing XM from FP?

    Actually this would affect all apps with commandline options, I can't
    believe this hasn't come up yet.

    Especially since it happens with the other frontends and is the
    reason I wrote LMF in the first place !
