External Application

Hello everyone,

I'm building a dedicate skin to use in my car computer.
So far I'm progressing quit well.

What I woud like is to start my Navigation Software from this skin. Does somebody know if it is possible in one way or the other to start this application from the Winamp Skin.

Frank

There once was a file system object created for Winamp 3 that would do such a thing, but it doesn't work in 5.

you can send messages to other application with
PHP Code:
System.ddeSend(String applicationString commandInt mininterval);

Thanks guys,

Unfortunately my application is not DDE compliant so the ddeSend command will not work. There is an API for the Application so maybe I should write somting in VB.

I guess you could write a plugin to give you access to process starting, but that might take a whie.
