Hi all!

I'd like to put an application launcher to the Programs menu. Use case is:
1. I click Programs
2. I click "Web browser"
3. System starts "Web browser" application.

All I can do now is to put a shortcut to the program's ("Web browser") parent folder. Is it possible to do what I want?

Its not possible yet per say
you could open up home.xml and try this find in home.xml
<onclick>ActivateWindow(Programs)</onclick>
and replace it with this
<onclick>ActivateWindow(10001,plugin://programs/Launcher/)</onclick>
might work no promisses though but its what favourites use to launch it

Thanks. It's interesting but I'm not sure how to configure this stuff. When I start it I can choose emulator or normal .exe, then there is some directories to choose but I don't know which and why.

As far as I understand this little app should make it possible to run linux, windows and mac applications. Cool but what does that mean to me when I'm using xbmc on xbox? Can I copy, for example, firefox directory from PC to xbox and then launch firefox using this app?

Sorry - I know that I didn't write that I'm on xbox - I assumed that as default Wink I've also written about starting "web browser" - I thought about linksboks.

I assumed you where on a computer (not an Xbox) when you said Web Browser.
