    Exit to windows explorer with RR exit



    It seems a solution has been posted heeeeeeere.

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/code...-gui-exit.html

    All you experienced coders or perhaps the "guvnor" guino can code this into an exit command pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ase.

    I'm not good with coding, basic scripts etc.. but not this.

    Launch Windows Explorer on Road Runner Exit

    No fancy coding is needed really.

    Open the Exectbl.ini and add this line:

    "Explorer","RUN;Explorer.exe"

    Then on your exit button, in the skin, simply add ||Explorer, so you exit button code would then be:

    "QUIT||Explorer"
    Front End of Choice: Ride Runner (Is there anything else??? ) & Powered by the DFX5.1 Skin Available in the Mobile App Mart

    Doesnt quite work that way.

    Booting straight into RR is fine, however, on exit, if you write the simple Exit run explorer.exe, all you get is an explorer window, no taskbar, no start menu etc.

    The solution mentioned rewrites the registry so that on exit, the entire shell, incl. task bar and start menu is loaded.


    Just FYI - what needs to be done is in portreathbeach's logic
    In the main form load_Load:

    '-----------------------------
    Dim WSH
    WSH = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WSH.RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsof t\Windows
    NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell", "explorer.exe")
    '-----------------------------


    In the 'exit' button:

    '-----------------------------
    Shell("explorer.exe")
    Dim WSH
    WSH = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WSH.RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsof t\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell", My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath & "\Vive.exe")
    End
    '-----------------------------

    Can it be done on AUTO IT?

    i use this AutoiIt script in my skin for selecting RR or Explorer. you can use it if you want,

    Code:
    #cs/ 
    i.e. "RUN;$SKINPATH$Shell.exe|RoadRunner"  will set RR as the systems shell
         "RUN;$SKINPATH$Shell.exe|windows"     for explorer.
    #ce/
    
    if not WinExists("RoadRunner", "") Then
    	exit
    EndIf
    $rr = ObjCreate("RoadRunner.sdk")
    if Not IsObj($rr) then Exit
    
    $rrpath=$rr.getinfo("RRPATH")
    
    Switch $CmdLineRaw
    	Case "Windows"
    		RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "shell", "REG_SZ", "explorer.exe")
    		$rr.Execute("SETLABEL;!SHELL;UPDATING||WAIT;1||SETLABEL;!SHELL;WINDOWS")
    
    	Case "RoadRunner"
    		RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "shell", "REG_SZ", $rrpath& "RoadRunner.exe")
    		$rr.Execute("SETLABEL;!SHELL;UPDATING||WAIT;1||SETLABEL;!SHELL;Road Runner")
    EndSwitch
