    It needs to be set up in RRConfig. These are my settings, they represent the default path for MapMonkey. Make sure you can run MM successfully in stand alone mode first :-
    PS: If you have got this far and want MM to load immediately. Use startcommand=(MM) in rr.ini to load the App(?) of your choice.

    Good idea, but the comand is worg the command is:

    startcommand=Runq;C:\destinatorApps\Map Monkey\MapMonkey.exe

    With Run or runq or runqw or runw....

    I try runq for start mapmonkey in background, but mapmonkey start always in first plane............ some idea to fix it?

    Heres something I did to get RR to open a program but minimized/background.
    Theres probably other ways.. but this works for me.

    Steps:

    1. Create a shortcut to Mapmonkey (put it on the desktop for this example)
    2. Open the shortcut properties, and set RUN to MINIMIZED.
    - If clicked, this will open MM, but minimize it to the task bar - (try it)
    3. Make a batch file in windows (called Mapmonkey.bat)
    4. Edit the batch file so that it runs the shortcut you made. (EG: "C:\Documents and Settings\CARPC\Desktop\Mappmonkey.lnk" .. no quotes)
    4. use "startcommand=Runq;C:\Documents and Settings\CARPC\Desktop\Mappmonkey.bat"

    This will run the batch file (in hidden mode). After the batch file has executed - MM loaded to the task bar - the batch thread dies, basically hiding any trace of its existance. You end up with MM on the taskbar and RR on the main focus.

    Hope that made sense.

    PS> You can use this technique for loading (but minimized) any apps you like.. just create shortcuts for each of them. Set RUN to MINIMIZED for each shortcut.. and then put each shortcut on its own line in MapMonkey.bat (perhaps call it LOADER.bat if you load multiple files) and make sure to change the filename in STARTCOMMAND to match whatever you call the batch file.
