    Help with Web-Plugin

    I still cannot figure this out. If I use the BMV2 skin the new web-plugin works fine. If I use my skin, clicking the main-menu button for "WEB" does nothing. If I use my skin without the web-plugin in ExecTbl.ini it works fine. If I copy BMV2's wbrowser.skin and menu.skin (plus graphics) over those files in my skin, it still doesn't work???

    Did you catch that? I can use the same menu.skin and wbrowser.skin that work fine in the skins\BMV2 directory, but if I run them from my skins\RedSkin directory the web button (from the BMV2 menu.skin) does nothing!

    Someone please tell me how this is even possible???

    sounds like one of the ExecTBL.ini files is missing the right commands. Or you have duplicate commands in both files.
    Between the 2 skins and the one in the root of RR there are 3 of them.

    Make sure you have
    "WEB","PLUGIN;WebPlugin;WebPlugin.exe"
    in the ExecTBL.ini for any skin you want to use it with.

    Make sure the button command in the .skin file says "WEB"

    If you have the command in the ExecTBL.ini file in the root of RR, make sure there isnt the same command in the ExecTBL file in the skin folder.

    I would recommend using it only in the ExecTBL.ini found in the skins folder.
    Check the ExecTBL.ini in the root of RR and make sure its not there also.
    There is a issue with how the 2 ExecTBL.ini files are handled.
    If the same command is referenced in both files, even if one of them has a blank command RR wont execute it correctly.

    Interesting... but I didn't even know you could have an ExecTBL.ini in a skin folder. I do not have one in my RedSkin and there is not one in BMV2.

    ...so what's the problem?

    I'm not sure I understand you.

    Edit: Ok, I opened RR, clicked WEB (did nothing), ran WebPlugin.exe.
    It worked greate except RR closed so when I clicked the back button I just had the desktop.
    I take it back, RR.exe was still running, just invisable (I had to End-Task it to run RR again).
    I tried it again with music playing... it keeps playing even though there is no visable RR.



    I did make a webplugin\SKIN and copy my RedSkin wbrowser.skin and osk.skin in to it. When I double click WebPlugin.exe it does work fine with my RedSkin out side of RR. It's just not running the wbrowser at all when ran though RR though.

    I have no clue how it can work fine with BMV2, but not work with RedSkin even after copying over general.ini, wbrowser.skin, menu.skin, and osk.skin with the default BMV2 files.

    I just tried renaming RedSkin to RedSkin1 and then renaming BMV2 to RedSkin. That worked fine also. How could one of my other .skin files be making this not work? I copied over all skins that were used (menu and wbrowser) and ALL other files (general.ini, sample.fla, *.swf, etc.) and it still doesn't work! You click WEB, nothing happens other than the button animation ...but if I rename BMV2 to RedSkin it works and when I don't use the WebPlugin it works. What gives?

    If you put the WebPlugin code in ExecTBL.ini, the Freedom skin's web button does nothing too. It works fine the old way. Oh, actually I am using the RR.exe that comes with Freedom though. Do I need to?

    here is the problem, or rather the solution. Since im up pretty early and bored.

    I tried to repro this with a different skin than mine, first i tried it with freedom and the web button didnt work even before i added the command to ExecTBL.ini so im not sure whats going on with that. Then i tried it with CF Day and i got the same thing you are getting. The web button did nothing. Switched back to my skin (lsxvoid) and it works fine. Went back to CF Day, no dice.

    Then i took a look in the skin folder at CF Day and there arent a lot of files, but i was looking to see if cdrip skin files were there since its basicly the first rr plugin (i think) and its not there either. So...

    wait, i talk to much.

    Long story short.

    Your missing the wait.skin file
    This is used by any plugin that calles the plugin command in RR and loads before the plugin does if the plugin is taking to long to load.
    So i copied my wait.skin and jpg files into CF Day and it worked.

    You da man LS.

    It even trys to work in Freedom now, but I'm getting an "Error 13, Type mismatch" even if I comment out the Flash sections of wbrowser.skin. Any clue on that one?

    (I am using the new RR.exe, not the one included with Freedom)

    If you say it worked on the BMV2 skin and not on another skin, then most likely that new skin either lacks wbrowser.skin OR wait.skin -- please verify you have those in place ALONG with the JPG files they use.

    hey guino can you take a look at the webplugin while its running inside of RR, im not sure if you saw my post in the release thread about the navigateing to first fav in list (homepage) on launch only works when the plugin is run standalone, also some focus issues while its running in plugin mode.
