I have Windows 7 with MediaPortal with the Microsoft MCE model 1039 RC6 remote, and I want the Green Start button to launch media portal. Hitting the button doesn't actually do anything, except make my mouse cursor flick for a split second.

How can I make this start MediaPortal?

    Try MPTRAY. - its easier to set up in non-MCE versions of windows than in those that have MCE, but generally works well for what you want to achieve.

    MPTRAYMOD may be worth a look if you have problems

    Thx etheesdad, I tried MPTRAYMOD but I can't copy "mptray.exe" and "mphook.dll" over. Says I don't have permission.

    BTW, I'm also using MediaPortal 1.1.

    **UPDATE**

    I realized that I have to close "mptray.exe", but it still doesn't do anything. I even installed a recompiled X64 version and it didn't work. I ran the .bat with administrative privileges.

    **UPDATE AGAIN**

    Got it working. Someone compiled a version that works in Windows 7 X64. Here's the link for anyone else looking to get this working.
