[WINDOWS] Boxee/XBMC Launcher Request
#1
I've been trying to figure out a way to launch Boxee from within xbmc and also xbmc from within Boxee. Preferably when switching to xbmc/boxee the other one would close.

Please let me know if this is possible.

Thanks,
Starpc

i'm having a similar issue and would love a solution. i tried using the launcher script and added boxee to it, but when launching boxee from that it gives a fatal error about no suitable skin version found... launching boxee from the same exe in windows explorer though, even with xbmc running in the background, produces no error.

To avoid that, you need to shut down XBMC first. The way to accomplish that is to write a small wrapper script that kills XBMC before launching Boxee and have the launcher plugin execute the script.

Once you exit boxee, it won't go back to xbmc, will it?

Create a simple autoit script.

Something like this (note that this is not actual code, just a simplistic way of making an example);

Code:
If WindowState.Active("XBMC") && WindowState.Active("Boxee") Then
WindowKill("Boxee")
EndIf

If WindowState.Active("XBMC") Then
WindowKill("XBMC")
Launch("Boxee")
EndIf

If WindowState.Active("Boxee") Then
WindowKill("Boxee")
Launch("XBMC")
EndIf
