Is it possible to launch a small executable from an addon which does not minimize XBMC, locking it up is fine. The executable takes 2-3 secs.

Is it doable? Tried System.Exec and System.ExecWait both minimize XBMC. Didn't find a thread that found a soln to the problem. This would be for Windows.

Hi

Perhaps this can help you.

Code:
<alwaysontop>yes</alwaysontop>

You must create a advancedsettings.xml and add this line

Thanks for the quick response. But it doesn't seem to work. Sad
