    can someone review this code for me real quick?

    Code:
    "RunQ;C:\Program Files\Close Zoom\Close zoom.exe||Load;external_gps.skin;iGuidance;C:\Program Files\iNav\iguidance.exe;iGuidance||RunQ;C:\Program Files\iGzoom\zoom.exe"
    I cant test this cause i dont have the exe's on this computer, only in the car. Basically i want that line to perform the following

    1.execute the .exe (close zoom.exe)
    2. load my gps skin and embed the iguidance window which will be already running in the background. I do not want a new instance to start up
    3. run another .exe (zoom.exe)

    The only part i'm not sure of is step 2. I dont know how to tell rr to load the skin and embed the program without opening another iguidance. I'd appreciate some help.

    Code:
    "RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Close Zoom\Close zoom.exe||LOAD;external_gps.skin||RUN;;iGuidance||RUNQ;C:\Program Files\iGzoom\zoom.exe"
    One question: Are you sure you want RUNQ? this will run those apps in the background so they will be hard to close.

    RUNQ seems to work fine with that program on other skins i've tested. The zoom tool cant run in background anyway and the close zoom tool needs to.

    From my understanding RR will grab an open window if it has the windowtitle it is looking for rather than opening a new instance of it.

    Kinda like when I have the forum open on a mapmonkey thread and open RR, when I click the GPS button it embeds the IE window

    yeah, that gets annoying when your testing a skin over and over. It will even grab RRskineditor

    You guys can always specify the window class name to make it more specific and not embed the wrong window.

    It's only when testing on the home PC Guino, not a problem for me...
