Multishortcut will not start WinDVD9!? (1 Viewer)

Hi All,

Quick one i hope. I cant get MultiShortcut or the HD Starter dll plugins to start my WinDVD9. Originally I had PowerDVD installed and was starting that no problem. I then switched to WinDVD9 as it does Blu-Ray and HD-DVD in one, plus installing SAF doesnt complain about WinDVD.

So all i did was edit my MultiShortcut plugin to simply point at the WinDVD9 exe instead of PowerDVD. But it just wont start when i click it in the MP menu. No idea why!

To test further I got the HD Starter which uses the AutoHotKey script and tried that instead. The EXE that i compiled works like a charm when i just double click it - WinDVD9 starts fine. However if i then use the HD Starter dll (or MultiShortcut) to try start that exe it still doesnt work.

Is WinDVD9 just a pain in the butt or what?

Any suggestions welcome!
