Ok I am still swimming through documentation and stuff, but I have been trying to figure out based on the scripts for the superstart menu on how to launch external programs from the SuperStart menus.

That, and how to rip out certain programs (ie aura as I want to launch DF instead, plus after effects, another program of mine, virtual dub, and tmpeg enc) and possibly rearrange the orders.

Look into the ToasterScript.doc

Search for a WinExec example.
That should help.

For script-kiddies like me, the simplest solution of all:

Go into prefs and use that path for the Windows Media Encoder button! Just set that path to any executable, and when you click on the transmitter icon in the menu's right side, viola!

Lithium,

Contact me or Blake and we can modify that menu for you. It would not take blake but about 15 minutes.

For all your help on my other product, it would be my pleasure to throw some love to you.

Blake's email is : blake at pizazzme dot com
