Any fix for the error? I have build 18307M and I have the same problem with the script error as Shift. Anyone have it working yet?
Or how can I get firefox to launch without the launcher plugin?
Like where do I make the change to use the exec cmds., shell script, within XBMC, I do not know. I have seen them as an entry for a key on the remote.

did you try with launcher 1.03? it has some fixes with the paths.
- speed32219 - 2009-04-01 19:52
Thanks for the quick reply leo2. No I am using 1.02 but will be moving to 1.03 shortly. Hope the third time for me is a charm. Great work by the way, I did have it working with Hardy and a XBMC Oct-November build, but that was an eternity ago. Many changes to OS and Xbmc since them.

Ah, tried 1.03 and it locks up xbmc. Had to do a reboot using putty.
The last time I had this working I followed your post here using:
Now, I forgot how I got it to work. LOL!
Am I suppose to create a launcher.xml file and put it in plugins/programs/launcher/resources. Heck, maybe thats my problem.

I've been waiting for this to work so I can design my apps section.

is it possible to not minimize XBMC on program launching?
because.. i don´t like to see the windows desktop with icons.. and maybe opened windows during launching process
maybe you can add a special picture that is shown.. or xbmc gets just a background layer.. and the new started program gets the top layer
maybe we can toggle this for each program...
in my case.. i start the game "you don´t know jack 4".. which changes the resolution of the system, too. (i don´t know if resolution changing is relevant)
thx a lot

I can get Stella (atari), ZnesX(Snes), MAME, fceux(NES), and Project64 all to work with my windoze version no problem.

hmm.. maybe this is fixable? (im not into coding, but i as i know.. xbmc is open source.. so everyone can edit it?)
Can't add Launcher Plugin :( - Trait0r - 2009-04-04 13:00
Hello guys, I'm stuck with a stupid problem. I follow the install procedure carefully but when I want to select the "Program plugin" item on step 3.2, XBMC just crashes with window closing. What's wrong ?

I'll save anybody else the trouble...
First, read this, especially Step 1.
Next, tell people what build of XBMC you're using, and on what OS.

Thx digital, here we go :
I'm running Atlantis 8.10 ; install was downloaded on the official site.
I'm using MC360 skin as suggested in the tutorial.
Os is Vista x86 SP1, French.
Last (and relevant) debug lines are :
19:23:16 T:3444 M:1866866688 WARNING: CUtil::GetMatchingSource... no matching source found for [Program Plugins]
19:23:16 T:3444 M:1866862592 WARNING: CUtil::GetMatchingSource... no matching source found for [Programs]
19:23:16 T:3444 M:1866862592 ERROR: Failed! Destination parameter (Programs) does not match a valid source!
sources.xml is default:
I tried to stop Firewall, run as admin, launch in various compatibility mode,
it's always the same thing : as soon as I select "Program plugins" (which matches plugin://programs/) XBMC window's closes.

First off, ditch Atlantis and get something a lot more recent.
Install that, and see if the problem persists. I doubt it will. If, for some reason, it does, then it's probably because the program plugins folder is missing. This will either be in C:\documents and settings\YOURUSERNAME\application data\xbmc\plugins\ or C:\program files\xbmc\plugins\.
But, I'm pretty sure that just installing an updated version will fix your problems.
