LaunchBar Commander / Windows 7 games seem not to work
« on: March 14, 2023, 04:35 PM »
After Win10 came out without installed games, someone hacked together "Windows 7 Games for Windows 10 and 8" which reinstalls the old games for old dogs like me. I just updated LBC today from 1.5 to 1.6 (yeah, I'm late to the party) and clicking on the old game menu items in LBC does nothing. I tried a couple other programs, not an exhaustive search by any means, and they launch. I rolled back to 1.5 and the games launch fine.

A copy of the "game restorer" program is here:

I'm sorta clueless on this one. Ideas?

I'm not a system tray fan (see "old school" above) and I've attached a screenshot of my task bar and system tray to show how I've set it up.  (Not clear on how to show the image in the post, so here's hoping).

I checked out Tips and Tricks and can do the -triggernode thing by creating a shortcut with the command line argument using the first node.  But I guess since it's relaunching the program, it takes longer than faking the hot-key.  So one way to implement this would be the same as -triggernode but without restarting the program.

And to be clear, this is an idea, not a demand.  I appreciate your efforts.

LaunchBar Commander / Feature suggestion or I'm doing something wrong

Being from the old school, I don't use hot-keys at the desktop, only within programs.  I would like to use LBC as a clickable menu from the taskbar and not bring it up with a hot-key combo.

To do that I've created a new toolbar on the taskbar, located it where I like and locked it.  The toolbar references a directory that contains a compiled AutoIt script that "sends" the hot-key combo.  Fairly clunky, but it does exactly what I want.  For me it's essentially a replacement for the Windows Start menu, which is a necessary evil but gets WAY too junked-up.  With this setup I rarely ever use the Windows Start menu.

For my use, and others like me, it would be nice to have the option of pinning LBC to the taskbar, or placing it in another toolbar, and to raise it by clicking the icon. And optionally have it disregard hot-keys.

If this can be done natively, then I've missed it and would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
