    Embedding programs into RR

    I have been doing some extensive research the past few days on this subject. I can get a program to show up in my "Applications" menu, but the program "pops up" instead of being embedded. I have followed this guide to the best of my ability (admittedly, I dont understand the words "To set it up an Application on the Launch Folder:") I have been following the steps to add the program to the launch folder.

    The program im trying to embed is taskmgr.exe. Im guessing it "pops up" because it can not be re-sized or I am missing something. Any help is appreciated.

    Specs:
    Windows 7
    Skin: elite 1.6.6

    Car PC software Setup [80%]
    Car Audio setup [60%]

    Have a look at blues RRExtended plugin, he has incorporated the task manager into a custom list.

    ----------------
    Description
    ----------------
    This feaure will give you a listing of either the currently running process or a listing of all the visible windows.
    If in the process listing, you can get a LOT of extra info about the currently selected process.
    Kill one or several same named process.
    Close a selected window.
    Jump to the process that belongs to selected window in the window list.


    ----------------------
    Ini Settings
    (rr.ini or skin.ini)
    ----------------------
    TaskMgr_Enabled=True/False - tells plugin whether to gather the label info for the task manager feature upon plugin startup
    TaskMgr_Col1=xx - is the width in chars of the left part of the process list, defaults to 22 and can not be less than 13
    TaskMgr_Col2=xx - is the width in chars of the right part of the process list, defaults to 12 and can not be less than 12
    TaskMgr_DrvLstCol1=xx - is the width in chars of the Total size column of the drive info , defaults to 13 and can not be less than 13
    TaskMgr_DvrLstCol2=xx - is the width in chars of the Free size column of the drive info , defaults to 13 and can not be less than 13
    TaskMgr_DrvLstCol3=xx - is the width in chars of the Used size column of the drive info , defaults to 13 and can not be less than 13
    TaskMgr_CompIPs=True/False - sets wether the plugin gathers the computers IP and internet IP at startup, defaults to false.

    --------------
    Required Skins
    --------------
    Task_Manager.skin - Main feature screen
    Task_Manager_KillTask_Confirm.skin - Is called as a menu screen when the KillTask command parameter is executed, use the "Enter" cmd for OK/Yes button cmd on this screen
    Task_Manager_KillALLTask_Confirm.skin - Is called as a menu screen when the KillAllTask command parameter is executed, use the "Enter" cmd for OK/Yes button cmd on this screen
    Task_Manager_KillTask_Error.skin - Is called as a menu screen when a killed task can not be terminated

    ---------

    I have not. However, once I learn how to embed single programs, I will take a look. Learning how to embed a program is my main goal of embedding the task manager, not being able to use the task manager.

    In that case just start with trying to embed notepad.



    The main thing about embedding is to get the window name correct. Without this it will always end up on top and not embedded.
