I tried those as well. It doesn't appear that the computer is frozen. It is just that you can't see anything beyond the remanents of the XBMC screen.

Is there a "hideconsole" type of flag for the launcher XML, so I don't see my CLI window?

That's too bad... :-(
Possible feature request if it's even possible thru python.

Hello, I need to launch some applications or games from the interface of XBMC.
How could I? The puging Launcher no longer works with the latest versions.
Is not there an easy way to insert links in such programs?.

It works for me. What error are you getting?

Didn't work for me either.
Where do you have your games installed?
Mine was under c:\Program Files (x86)\..... folder which I guess the launcher didn't like. Suppose it has to have qoutes around the path to make it work.
What I did was to create a launchXXgame.bat file where I pointed to the .exe file of the game like so:
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\GameXX\"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\GameXX\XX.exe"
And put my launchXXgame.bat in c:\game_startup\
Then I added the .bat file to the launcher which made it work.

Please anyone help out, I'm going nuts over this......
This is how it goes: I've unzipped the Launcher files into ../plugins/Programs
start xbmc, locate the plugin, save as favourite
go into favourites, check Launcher settings.... can only change thumbs path there
click Launcher plugin and it starts loading directory and then xbmc crashes!
I know I need a launchers.xml (I think) but what should it look like and where do I put it?
I tried something like this:
Do I need to change anything in the original files, like settings.xml or any other?
I'll either use this plugin to launch games directly or via a .bat-file.

K I'm not a programmer like all you guys...I just want this to work
I followed the tutorial, added it to the directory, then added it to favorites...
But when I click on "Launcher" it just takes me to a file list and shows the 'folder' folder...
So have I done something wrong so far? Or what? I just want to have some nice thumbnails, and a way to launch my games

Hi, i have found this way myself and i don't know if this is the true way:
my launchers.xml file is like this :
and i put it into the plugin data folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\SalonHD\ApplicationData\XBMC\userdata\plugin_data\programs\Launcher
I think that is not important if the application in xml file exist or not.
Sorry for my english.
