How do I create desktop shortcut for WMC - Extras - Plug-in

I've figured out how to create desktop shortcuts to launch Windows Media Center (WMC), WMC + TV Guide, WMC + My Movies.

Now I'm looking for help on how to create a desktop shortcut for WMC - Extras - Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 . . . which is a WMC plug-in I'm using to play my Blu-ray & DVDs via my HTPC.

Any help on how to create this shortcut would be greatly appreciated.

Hi friend! I may be new to Seven Forums, but I've had some help on Eight Forums!

%windir%\ehome\ehsell.exe

this is the "Target:" my PC recognizes Windows Media Center's target is.
I cannot open it from run.

I'll be looking for you!

P.S.
eshell.exe is in the \ehome folder. When you open that, it opens Media Center.

Hello, thank you for your response. Clarification...as I mentioned in my original posting, I've figured out how to create desktop shortcuts to:
  1. Launch Windows Media Center (WMC)
  2. Launch WMC + go directly to TV Guide
  3. Launch WMC + go directly to My Movies.
Where I need help is how to create a desktop shortcut for WMC - Extras - "Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5" . . . which is a WMC plug-in I'm using to play my Blu-ray & DVDs via my HTPC.

Sorry if I wasn't clear in my original post. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a thread in XBMC forums http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=131464 that has a post of parameters for %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe <PARAMETER> that may work for you. Check in Post #10 (by Livin) for a paragraph called OTHERS
/entrypoint:{APP_GUID}\{ENTRYPOINT_GUID}
- Starts WMC directly to a registered entry point. APP_GUID and ENTRYPOINT_GUID are strings that match the GUIDs of the desired application and entry point identifiers for the entry point to be launched. You must have previously registered the application using the RegisterApplication API or RegisterMceApp.exe for this command line switch to work correctly.
Maybe this relates to what you are looking for? Good luck....
