If this is the case then please try this customized version of the .exe. Its my first version without the variables for file and skin path. It will put the .txt file in C:\program files\road runner\livetraffic\livetraffic and read it from there. Then it'll pull the images and place them in your CobraSkin_07 folder. Both versions are working on all of my computers.
    ok, not sure why this worked, but it did. I have 6 sweet cam pics in my cobraskin_07 folder

    oh crap... figured it out dude..

    Ok, the first rar file you had for download, had the following file structure.

    \livetrafficTEST\livetrafficTEST.exe
    \livetrafficTEST\livetraffic\livetraffic.ini

    I of course renamed the livetrafficTEST folder to livetraffic, since that was the naming convention in the INI file. What worked, was the following:

    \livetraffic\livetrafficTEST.exe (with or without the TEST in the exe filename worked)
    \livetraffic\livetraffic.ini

    The first file now places the pics in my CobraSkin_07 folder... lol now we just need to configure the particular cams ;-)

    I have it running/intergrated in my latest skin. As far as I know, you don't need to do anything with AutoIt except maybe have it installed.
    Here is my button code to run the program and then load the images into the livetraffic/traffic cam skin.

    Code:
    B,580,252,203,100,"RUNW;C:\PROGRAM FILES\ROAD RUNNER\LIVETRAFFIC\LIVETRAFFIC.EXE||Load;traffic.skin||LOADIMG;20;78;250;200;glebe.jpg;OUT||LOADIMG;275;78;250;200;lynn.jpg;OUT||LOADIMG;530;78;250;200;parkway.jpg;OUT||LOADIMG;20;303;250;200;canal.jpg;OUT||LOADIMG;275;303;250;200;wash.jpg;OUT||LOADIMG;530;303;250;200;edsall.jpg;OUT",
    I use "RUNW" so it runs the livetraffic program, road runner waits till it has downloaded the new images and then loads the traffic.skin.

    Also, I remember a problem with the folder setup. Ensure the "livetraffic" folder is in your Road Runner folder, and inside your livetraffic folder, you have the following files:

    livetraffic.exe
    livetraffic.ini (possibly need to copy and edit from a subfolder)
    trafficland.txt

    the livetraffic.ini file should have the filepath for the program and the skinpath which should point to the current skin your using and trying to load the traffic cam images. i.e.:
    Code:
    [livetraffic]
    filepath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\livetraffic
    skinpath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\COBRA_08\SKIN\
    I've attached my livetraffic folder. NOTE that the traffic cams aren't yet configurable, Sonic is still adding that in as far as I know...

    what do you mean live feed? my skin is setup to run the program, download the new images and display those new images. If it's not working correctly, ensure you have the file and skin locations set right in the \livetraffic\livetraffic.ini file. The traffic cams ARE NOT live, you only get updated screen shots. The more often the program is run, and thereby downloading the latest pics from the website, the more updated pics you get. The skin will pull the images from the same folder that it's in.

    To use it in another skin, just copy the TRAFFIC button code from the main menu and create your own button in your skin with the same code, and copy the contents of the traffic.skin to your skin. i.e. the label code, etc...
