I also have the same needs, but no solution: I would like to launch from the TV menu of mediaportal. Is this possible? Thanks!

    Finally, is it possible to launch a program from MediaPortal?
    I'm a brandnew user of Spotify (I pay for it) and I think it would be interesting to launch it from inside MP.
    (multishortcut or addon...)
    The Multishortcut plugin (v 2.7) is working for me MP 1.24 and Win 10 Pro x64 (1909), I recently installed it and got it working.:)
    The only issue I found is that during the "install" you must run the DLLFix.exe program "as administrator" it is not sufficient to run it in an Admin account, failure to do so will result in any additional copies of the shortcut .xml you have made all appearing in the MP config progam with the same name etc.
    I also have the same needs, but no solution: I would like to launch from the TV menu of mediaportal. Is this possible? Thanks!
    I don't think the Multishortcut program will do that for you (i.e. add a shortcut to the TV menu) but it may be possible to add it via a skin editor if it supports the plugin.
