    RUNQ;pathtoexe.exe

    This is how I entered the command in the button command box...

    B,000,050,200,050,"RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\StartMenu.exe",""


    Did not work...so then I tried.....


    B,000,050,200,050,"RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\StartMenu\Startmenu.exe",""


    Still did not work...then I tried.....


    "RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\StartMenu\Startmenu.exe",""


    Did not work..then I tried.....


    RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\StartMenu\Startmenu.exe


    Did not work..then I tried.....


    "RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\Startmenu.exe",""


    Did not work..then I tried.....


    RUNQ;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Skins\eLite 2 (Default)\Startmenu.exe


    Did not work...so my question is...how do I enter it so it will work??? I changed the elite 2 skin name to elite 2 (Default)...and I'm using the start menu exe program you created mitchjs and saved it to my skin folder...and it work great, so for now I am using it as a menu button selection till I solve my current issue....just to be sure you are not confused...thanks


    Here is my Startmenu icon in case someone needs it

    I gave up and instead created a new menu selection screen for my windows desktop stuff
    All of my other screens have 'Windows' instead of 'Power' and open up my Windows Options screen except the 'Shutdown" screen...which has "Back To Main" instead of "Power', which returns me to the 'Welcome" screen...and the "Windows Options" screen is the only one that leads to the "Power" screen


    I would...however....like to add level meters to the "welcome" screen(circled in white). How would i do that? I have not seen any skins that have level meters to use to edit from....thanks in advance

    I added visualizations to my "Welcome" screen. When the visualization is active it locks the welcome screen, but still leaves the control buttons at the bottom active....yayyy! To activate the visualization all I have to do is touch the screen....touching it again deactivates the visualization and unlocks the screen to use the menu screen buttons. I think that others will love how I I got the "Welcome" screen setup....and am submitting my skin so the the skin designer can tweak it for me since I still have other things to get working...such as weather, phone, and wifi....stay tuned
