Yes, you probaly need to install the plugin launcher under :
C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\XBMC\plugins\programs instead of C:Program Files\XBMC\plugins\programs

Thanks guys, I knew it would be something simple I'd missed.
Worked on this comp, will try it when i get back on the HTPC, but chances are its the same thing. Once again thanks.

i run XBMC on a ubuntu HTPC and had this problem a while back.
when XBMC is in full-screen apps launch behind it.
to fix this i now run all my launchers through a simple script
... my launcher for leo's launcher
using the HTTP-API we toggle XBMC's FS ... launch ... & toggle back
i point all my launchers through this script by making it the application for every <launcher> & making moving <exec> to the 1st [arg] ...
<args>[app exec] [arg] [arg] ...</args>
the http web sever needs to be on (running on 8080)...
the same methodology may hold true in windows with a bat file
Leo can you add a toggle (like wait) for FullScreen ?

hi, i'm new here (sorry for my english)
i'm a user of mamewah frontend for emulators, and runs great, and I recently discover XBMC for windows, and it interface is great, but i feel kind of dissaponted when i realize that don't have a native emulators support; reading the forum, i found "LAUNCHER " aplication, and i had no problem to configurate ZNES, NES, PROJECT64, EPSXE, runs great on my stone age pc (duron 1.3, 512ddr, fx5200).
Now, the question is.... HOW CAN I ADD LAUNCHER APLICATION (script, plugin, i dont know) IN MAIN MENU (below of video, music, weather etc...?
the other question is.... is there any way to install native xbox emulators on xbmc for windows? and navigate besides pc emulators
thanks a lot

OK - due to my limited knowledge of scripts and writing code, this has gone a little over my head.
I understand the concept that this script will tell launcher to goto windowed mode then launch the app (and I figure the same will happen in reverse when I close the app), but where do I need to copy the code to?
Thanks for your help - I had almost given up on this as it was all proving too hard.

Snaps with the Launcher plugin? - jmode - 2009-06-08 22:42
i have all my emulators (znes, virtuanes, project64, kega fusion, epsxe) perfectly configurated with launcher 1.03 in PMIII; but if i want to have thumbnails for my diferents roms, or even pc games, they all have to be in the same folder. is there any way to have my snapshots in diferents folders for each emulator or pc games

I have launcher working correctly on my XBMC setup. I am using XBMC as a media front end to BeyondTV. Having to navigate from the main menu to Programs, selecting Launcher then selecting the application I have setup is bit obvious to the uninitiated user. I would like to have BeyondTV should up as an item on the main menu page. I have read through most of the thread and there is mention that this can be accomplished by editing home.xml
I am unsure how to accomplish that. In addition, my understanding is that Home.xml gets overwritten whenever you install an update. If I do edit home.xml, I guess I would have to edit home.xml every time I install an update?

I recently added all my games into the Aeon games section using the launcher plugin but ran into some issues:
To fix these issues I made some changes to my Launcher installation:
The modified version can be downloaded off the following mediafire share.
Here is how the result looks in Aeon skin:
