[Windows] Using mobile witch as remote with shell boot? - m_zeid - 2011-05-01

Hi to all of you XBMC communityLaugh

Honestly I've been using XBMC from a while but didn't play much with it.

My system runs windows XP, and runs XBMC as shell to run directly, fastly and in full screen.

I'm using "Mobile Witch" to control XBMC using my old 6303c cellphone via bluetooth, the problem is that the shell boot is not runnint the server side of Mobile witch!!
So how can I add it?

note: I followed this TUT for shell boot: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=37492

sorry for bumping this thread, I was writing a new one then remembered this.

I still need this:
1- control XBMC by cell phone via bluetooth
2- make this work on windows/XBMC setup with shell boot

I'd guess the Mobile Witch server runs as a user mode app and needs to be started at login. How is it normally run? Do you put a shortcut in the Startup folder, or is it run from the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run?

You could try creating an autoexec.py to run the app. Something like:

Code:
import subprocess

subprocess.Popen("C:\\Program Files\\etc\\someapp.exe")

You need to put the full file name of the Mobile Witch server in as the argument to subprocess.Popen(), and note that in Python backslash is an escape character so you need to double each backslah.
