    Question Multiple windows shells?

    Ok anyone tell me if this is possible or how I can do it. I want to load winamp as my shell but in order to use my remote I need to load girder is there any way i can load both without loading anything else. Like having both girder and winamp as my shell?

    I Don't know if this would work, but you might be able to set up a batch file of some kind that starts both programs and set that file as your shell. Just an idea, it might not work at all.

    It has been discussed before, very recently, but using a batch file is supposed to work. then just load the batch file as your shell.

    Why not place Girder in the RUN section of win.ini???

    ifyo place a semicolon between the commands you can then run multiple progams

    Why not have Girder as your shell and have it spawn as many apps as you like ? I have Girder setup like this to spawn OziExplorer and WinAMP.

    Just attach a program to the "GirderOpen" event. When Girder starts, it runs whatever you've assigned to that event.
