Relaunch is a 2 foot UI utility to add a new tile to the Extras Library of Windows Media Center. It requires the .net framework 4.x. It is a portable app and does not require installation. All it really does is write an autoit script, and an MCL file for you using this method. Note that it does not change Media Center in any way. If you go delete the files, the tiles you created will go away. If you used Relaunch 1.x to add tiles, be careful to read my note at the end of this post. I added a lot to this release, so read past the break for more information.
There are a lot of webapps and 10 foot UI TV-friendly apps out there to get more “over the top” content to HTPC owners. It is a bit of a mess to try to find all of these ways of getting content. Using Windows Media Center, Google Chrome, and my own Relaunch, I can use all of these 10 foot apps to get more content through my HTPC. You don’t necessarily have to use that combination, as any HTPC can run these if you have a way of launching a browser. Head past the break to see the list!
Relaunch 2.0 has been released. Find it here.
Relaunch is a little utility that will add a tile to the Extras Library in Windows Media Center. It can be downloaded here and the source is here. The .net Framework 4.x is required. Also let’s be clear, this is my first .net app. When Hulu Desktop came out there was a launcher written. There is a launcher for boxee. I got tired of the individual launchers and decided to write a universal one.
