Can I run PowerPlaylist from outside WMC7?

Nov 2, 2009 at 10:02 PM

Hi folks,

I have downloaded Power Playlist but I want to be able to click on the list outside of Windows Media Center so that it goes straight to opening a slideshow in WMC. Is there a way to do this with the REG_edit or entry points?

Thanks a bunch.

You can craft a shortcut to ehshell.exe which will do what you seek -- see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb189052.aspx -- the entrypoint switch is the one you will use.
 
For example, to launch directly to the first tile defined in PowerPlaylist you would use...
 
ehshell.exe /entrypoint:{94761D39-3AAF-4c54-A2D3-CBDA27D2229C}\{DFD75E76-7530-4d0d-A126-71863200A556}
