    This plugin offer you the ability to create shortcuts for launching executable files in MediaPortal home screen or plugins screen.

    It is multi-language, actually, supported languages are :
    - English.
    - French.
    - German.

    Plugins IDs are delivered randomly but, you can change them for mapping.

    Also, choose to Hide and/or restart MediaPortal before and after launch.

    If you like playing medias (music, videos...), you have ability to stop and restart MediaPortal player at the same place as stopped before.
    It avoid you to click on stop/start buttons before launching/exit your application.

    You can even define your own Buttons/picture, to best fit your need.

    Up to 3 programs in differents directories can be launched for one shortcut.

    Theses launches can be used with or without arguments both defined in the Multishortcut Config Form or, in MediaPortal virtual keyboard.

    In the .rar archive, you will find a document "MultiShortcut readme how to.doc" wich will explain the way to install/configure/use this plugin(s).
    Don't forget to copy language folder in the right place.

    You can find older thread for Multishortcut plugin here :
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...rtcut-plugin-execute-programs-home-menu-7425/

    There is a new installer here :
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...tishortcutsetup-multishortcutinstaller-89170/

    EDIT - For MP 1.2beta and later, see this post later in the thread.
    EDIT2 : For MP 1.3 please, use V2.4 plugin version.
    EDIT3 : For MP 1.6 please, use V2.5 plugin version.
    EDIT4 : For MP 1.22 please, use V2.7 plugin version.

    Enjoy.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for posting this new thread (with links to the latest plugin). :)

    This has now solved my issue with incorrect paths for the picture (hover) file. :D

    Many thanks,

    J.

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    for the life of me i cannot get it this to work. i downloaded the 1.7 build of multishortcut, installed all the files where they are supposed to go, did the dll fix, went to the config section, put the location of the exe (for hulu and zinc) i then copied down their ids, put them into xml files for steamedmp skin. after i open mp 1.1 and i click on one of the 2 short cuts, the screen goes black and then returns to the basic home menu. i every combination in the plugin config, it does the same thing.


    any ideas on what i need to do or change? with it

    i am running windows 7 home premium x64, not sure on the media portal svn build for 1.1. i am able to get this to work within vista home premium x64 with ms 1.2 and mp 1.02. just not in windows 7. it is the only thing that doesn't work (other then fast forwarding with h.264 avi's)

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    does it work in other skins? like the blue3 skin?
    I would start there, if it does work then there must be something wrong with the way you setup the other skin.

    If not, then there must be something else going on.

    Try it out in blue3 and we'll go from there.

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    i switched to the blue3 wide skin, disabled basic home, loaded MP, found the shortcut, selected it. the screen went blue (like the background of the skin), then returned to the menu.

    it SEEMS ok.
    Try changing the ID to make sure it isn't conflicting with another plugin which may be using the same ID.

    Also, try switching MP to windowed mode so you can see what is going on, see if Hulu Desktop is even trying to start.

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    not really sure how to change the id on the process.

    i started MP in window mode and then clicked my hulu short cut and it did the same thing as before.

    not sure if this will help, but one thing i noticed when setting up MP 1.1 and MP 1.02, the skin folder and lanuage dlls are in different spots. in 1.02 it is in the main team mediaportal folder, and in 1.1 the skin and language folders are in the program data folder, while the rest of the plugin is in the program files (x86) folder. not sure if that makes a difference or not.


    thanks for all your help on this Dreadfury
