    well
    by taping what i tape in my console to go to the files i made it working.

    But maybe you can help me on combining the two like you did with the "if"

    here what i found :
    1. in the windows there is no "programmes" i though it was the translation for program files and it was like this as it is shown like this in windows. but the fact is when i use the console i have to go to "program files" (without the (x86) )

    2. here what i wrote in the batch to make it work :
    cd..
    cd.. /*so i eliminqte the windows\Syswow64*/
    cd c:\program files\
    cd VLC
    vlc.exe
    PAUSE

    I've done the same with winamp and the both worked !!
    Hardway huh ? lol.

    so how can i combine the two now ? that is my question ;)

    but thanks anyway for all your indications !

    Well i've move on :
    This is my actual batch file :

    IF "%1"=="MY_DVD" cd C:\Program Files\
    cd VLC
    vlc.exe
    PAUSE
    IF "%1"=="ROOT" cd C:\Program Files\
    cd winamp
    winamp.exe
    PAUSE

    can you help me ? DONE ^^

    Well this is my final batch file : (thanks to my old Basic souvenirs with my casio calculator i was programming on :D )

    @ECHO OFF
    IF "%1"=="MY_DVD" GOTO VLC
    IF "%1"=="ROOT" GOTO WINAMP

    :VLC
    cd C:\Program Files\
    cd VLC
    vlc.exe
    EXIT

    :WINAMP
    cd C:\Program Files\
    cd winamp
    winamp.exe
    EXIT

    AND that's working !!!

    This is a great find. Thanks for sharing.

    FYI: Uninstalling QuickPlay but leaving the folders and exe file doesn't work.

    you need to backup "DVDP.exe" & "QPMENU.exe" before uninstalling.
    after uninstalling remake the path "C:\Program Files\HP\QuickPlay\" and put there the backuped files and the QP.exe made using the batch.

    R1C47: I personally like Quick Batch File Compilier, but it's shareware. I bought it for another task a few months back.

    The code below can still allow QuickPlay to launch if opened via a link in the Start Menu, shortcut, etc. by saying if there's no switch at the end, just open qp.bak.exe, but you'll have to make sure you rename the original qp.exe to qp.bak.exe before putting the compiled code below there.

    This was built for an x64 machine... for a 32-bit Vista installation, just take out the " (x86)" (<-- there's a space in there, too) for all three references.

    ---Start copying below---
    IF "%1"=="MY_DVD" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe"
    IF "%1"=="ROOT" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
    IF "%1"=="" "C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\QuickPlay\QP.bak.exe"
    EXIT
    ---End copying above---

    Thank you, R1C47 and everybody, for this amazing solution.

    For beginners, I've also attached a zip.

    IMO, HP's Quickplay software is useless (especially considering Windows Media Center does the same thing) and the GUI is just awful... the icons are choppy looking and nothing utilizes cleartype technology!! When I used to own a TX2000, that was the first thing I uninstalled.

    I was under the impression that you need to install quickplay in order for certain buttons to work? Or is that referring to the Quick Launch button drivers?

    If all we need to install is the drivers, can we still create batch/exe files as detailed before to link to programs?

    Same here. I kept all the .exe files, but no luck.
