No idea if this has been posted on here before, but I found this while looking for a solution to launching XBMC instead of Media Center on Win 7 with a MCE remote:

launching xbmc with a windows media center remote

The basic idea is that his code replaces ehshell.exe in Windows, and then the Green Button (or equivalent) launches XBMC instead. The code also brings XBMC to the foreground if it is already running.

I've installed it, and it works like a charm if you have the standard registry settings in place.

Just thought I'd share, not associated with it in any way...
