    You mean change the "run;C:\Program Files\Zeitronix\Zeitronix Data Logger v3.1.5\zdl.exe" to "runq;C:\Program Files\Zeitronix\Zeitronix Data Logger v3.1.5\zdl.exe", I try it but result still is same.

    Moreover, when I back the skin, the program still closed when I use the command of "CANCEL" and "EXIT". Thanks!

    You need to read this instructional. Use Winspector Spy to find the exact window name of your program. It will not necessarily be what you have chosen. You are also able to trim the menu bars etc, so all you have left is the program window. The program will not start until you have that exact window name correct.

    Hi drewbp,

    Thanks for your advise. Is the link removed? I can't go to this link.

    I tried the winspector and findwindowinfo.exe to find out the class name of the program before(shown in thread 3), they return it is "AfxFrameOrView90su", but when I add it into ExecTBL.ini ("LOAD;ZEITRONIX.skin;;C:\Program Files\Zeitronix\Zeitronix Data Logger v3.1.5\zdl.exe;!AfxFrameOrView90su"), it cannot launch the class into ride runner, so someone advise me to use the windows title of "Zeitronix" instead of class name. Finally, I use "LOAD;ZEITRONIX.skin;;C:\Program Files\Zeitronix\Zeitronix Data Logger v3.1.5\zdl.exe;Zeitronix Data Logger", this include all menu bar and icon.

    I have a mistake, the program still in memory, when I press the back button, the program disappear in the task bar, so I think the program is closed, actually the program still in backgroud and I found it in the process tab of Task Manager.

    However, I still not fixed the program startup in front of the RR issue. Would you help me? Thanks!

    To get out of the screen without closing the app, you can use the command "MAIN" (to return to main screen) or any load command to an existing screen.
    If "runQ" is not loading the application without showing it, then it's because the application in question does is not respecting the OS's parameter to start the application in the provided state (bad coding on the software) - in this case you can try to find a command line parameter on the application to run it minimized to prevent it from showing.
    Last resort would be to make a plugin, script or even use a timer in the main screen to run the SHOWWINDOW command to hide it every second or something like that. Of course this is a "rigged" solution.

    Thanks, I read it before I create the skin, but seem the application is not develop very well, the first line is strange, I use your method step by step, the result of the first line (Class Name) is "Afx:00400000:b:00010011:00000006:000F038A", is it correct class name for RR application to launch? Finally I use the Windows Title of "Zeitronix Data Logger" instead.

    Thank you very much.

    I try to use [Windows] + M (Minimize all windows) when I started the RR, it minimize all windows except RR, so I think it is work, where do I place a sendkey command to acheive.

    is the send key syntax correct if I type "SENDKEY;{LWIN}M"

    Morever, does Startup Command in RR.ini support 2 commands? I want to RUNQ and SENDKEY when program startup, or I need to modify the menu.skin to use the "ONSKINSTART" command.

    Thanks!

    Oh, I found that use || (double pipeline) can do a multi command in the startup, but seem the sendkey Windows M is not correct.

    Finally, I use the StartupCommand to solve my issue, but I don't know is it stupid method.


    My issue in default skin is:
    1. The "Embedded Application" cannot hide/minimize when startup through RR.
    2. If I don't run this application skin one time, it will not close when I close RR

    This is initial version
    StartCommand=RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Zeitronix\ZDLv3\zdl.exe||SENDKEY;% N||LOAD;zeitronix.skin;;c:\program files\zeitronix\zdlv3\zdl.exe;Zeitronix Data Logger||CANCEL
    And then I try this simpified version which the same as the initial one.
    StartCommand=LOAD;zeitronix.skin;;c:\program files\zeitronix\zdlv3\zdl.exe;Zeitronix Data Logger||CANCEL
    RR is wonderful application and thank you very much all of you to help me to solve it.

    But the syntax of "LOAD;zeitronix.skin;;c:\program files\zeitronix\zdlv3\zdl.exe;Zeitronix Data Logger" I already type in the ExecTBL.ini and call "ZEITRONIX", this syntax can call by label/command of "ZEITRONIX", is it possible done in StartupCommand? how to input?
