renamed the xbe. my oh my. renaming a file doesnt magically turn it into another file format you know (although windows sure gives that impression).
xbe != exe
even if you change the extension. you need a EXE built for WIN32

Have same issue as Coolgamer30 on this one. Running it on a VIA C3 with S3 Unichrome type graphics (DX9 "compatible").

Is there a more recent version of this available?

I believe T3CH includes it with his/her build.

that is the one from tech, will update the xbmcscripts one with every new tech build or if there is a major change i might even compile a new one myself..

I recently did a few changes to XBMC_PC, that are now available in the SVN trunk.
First one is i changed the icon (now has a nicer aspect ratio and different sizes).
Secondly, after forgetting to run the bat to create the substituted (virtual) drives. and just having XBMC_PC 'lockup', I added detection to check whether the Q:\ doesn't exist and is not a CD-ROM (it will give u a message and quit). Be sure Q:\ p:\ s:\ z:\ are writable as I (xbmc_pc) does not check that.
Thirdly, at the request of Smokehead, I hooked up F11 to 'fullscreen' XBMC PC. It’s not the best as it’s not telling direct to go full screen, more or less it removes the window title and borders and stretches the window to the size of your screen and the Menu Bar is still there. Few issues sometimes where ht task bar is still present u will need to click on the window to get it full screen.
I tried to make the Menu bar be visible/ hidden with another function key but had no luck.
The Q:\ detection is the most useful

I found out a little bit more info on the problem I am having with xbmc pc. If there is a Textures.xpr file in the media directory in the skin then xbmc pc crashes. So what I did was copy all the textures from svn and put them in the media directory and this time it loaded up but not all the text was showing. So it looks like there is a problem loading the Textures.xpr. Here is a screenshot of what I mean when I say the text doesn't show: http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j250/Coolgamer30/xbmc.jpg
Have OSD in XBMC_PC - w84no1 - 2007-02-08 22:14
XBMC_PC is awesome for us skinners, but one thing it is lacking is the ability to use the on screen display.
Could it be added? Say you click on a video, the on screen display could be available, with a solid color background or a picture of a cat whatever.
I think that is would make it a lot easier for us. Thanks jmarshall, this app has allowed me to start skinning at work without the need for an Xbox, except for the OSD.
