Okay...I'm a little surprised that there isn't more info on this...am I the only one that can't get this to work?
I do believe I've followed the steps properly- downloaded silentlaunch, put it on the C:, downloaded instantsheller, put it on the C:, created, silentlaunch.cfg and pointed it to my xbmc executable.
Anyway, end result is this:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
© Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.EXPERIEN-E9B3D3>cd\
Application: "C:\program files\XBMC\XBMC.exe"
Finish reading config..
Starting to launch applications
Launch: "C:\program files\XBMC\XBMC.exe"
Res: Failed with code 5
Finished to launch applications
ERROR: One or more applications failed to launch
The only thing I can think is it's because of the xp version I'm running. It's a stripped down version.
EDIT: Never mind...I'm an idiot. Now, the only thing I'm wondering about is an automatic shutdown of the pc when xbmc is shutdown...
