I have installed advanced launcher and added dvbviewer to favorites, but I want to have a menu on the home screen that says dvbviewer and when that is pressed dvbviewer starts. Is that possible? I've tried to add a custom entry where I choose favorite as type but then under choose favorite dvbviewer is not there, it only says cannot find favorites.xml.

choose custom as type and enter "XBMC.System.Exec(C:\DVBViewer\dvbviewer.exe)" (you have to adjust the path of course)

I've installed dvbviewer in the C drive just to make it easy so the path should be C:\DVBViewer\dvbviewer.exe. I done as you described above and now there is a menu point named dvbviewer but nothing happens when I press it. What can I have missed?

Edit: ahh wrote exce insted of exec. Thanks for the help and sorry for all the threads

I'm using aeon mq3 now and there I do not have the custom option as type, I can only add favourites and it still says it can find the favourites.xml.

Do you have a solution for this too?
