If I paste the location into Run, it launches firefox, so again, dunno!

I'm having the same problem, I've tried using the the short 8.3 version of the filename and putting the filename in a .bat file and pointing the button to that, it still can't find it.
I've tried, by way of experiment, pointing the button to a program which has no spaces in it's file address and that seems to work fine. Short of re-naming the whole file structure for the program I want, does anyone have any idea?
Thanks

If you have a 32 bit WIN OS you need to use: C:\Progra~1\Mozill~1\firefox.exe

If you have a 64 bit WIN OS you need to use: C:\Progra~2\Mozill~1\firefox.exe

"32bit"

<item id="12">
<label>Internet</label>
<onclick>XBMC.System.Exec(C:\Progra~1\Mozill~1\firefox.exe)</onclick>
<icon>special://skin/backgrounds/firefox.jpg</icon>
</item>

"64bit"

<item id="12">
<label>Internet</label>
<onclick>XBMC.System.Exec(C:\Progra~2\Mozill~1\firefox.exe)</onclick>
<icon>special://skin/backgrounds/firefox.jpg</icon>
</item>

Peace Out!!!

a few things i have found i get the
Quote:windows cannot find error...
if i didnt have the correct lowercase/upper case
i changed the location from the one with spaces but then found the casing to be my problem after it still didnt work
i dont know if you use the quotation marks that it may not be a problem with the spaces "C:\Users\Bert02\Firefox.exe"
