    Mediacar and Win98SE problems

    Who runs MC with win98se and knows a solution for the "power-off"-problem?
    (if choosing power-off, Mediacar only exits)?

    Bob,

    Make sure that in MediaCar Setup (accessible from the Start menu) you have set the Exit Menu Function to something other than Exit (such as Ask - which will give you the menu, or Power Off to shutdown)

    I already set the exit menu function to ask.
    In the "ask"-menu i can choose exit, hibernate, power off, reboot and cancel. If i choose exit, MC exits to windows (without shutdown). But if i choose power off, MC exits to windows too (without shutdown)!
    How can i get MC to shutdwon if i choose power off?

    I had this same problem with MediaEngine And It solved with changing the source code. But If You´re Using GIRDER and for example a remote controller you can specify girder to shutdown windows on specific button.

    Here is how it goes on my win98se system. If I choose "power-off" from inside media-car, the system first exits Mediacar but then attempts to restart windows (calls login screen) then dumps my active desktop and asks if I want to restore the active desktop. If I simply go to the start button while Mediacar is active, I can go to "Shut Down" and the computer closes normally. Something ain't correct here. Any ideas?

    try this:
    Right click desktop and create new; shortcut. in the location line type: "shutdown -s -t 0". then if you can link to this shortcut from inside MediaCar it will shut down the PC. It works in XP, though I haven't tried linking to it from inside MediaCar.

    The "Shutdown" command only works under Win XP, ME and 2000.
    98 dont knows the command "Shutdown".
    Thats the whole problem!

    Perhaps Coyote can edit the command in the next MC-Version, so that WinXP AND Win98 can execute it...

    Hello all,

    I'm a newbee here, more info than one could read through...but anyway, There is a command line for window 98 to shut down or standby or restart it..I have it somewhere here and as soon as I can find it I will post it, don't know how or if you change the original command line(s) for the exit buttons command(s), but from the shortcuts that I used it in it works a little too well, so let me do some digging and post it for you and hope it will help all of us......more to come..
