Release Notes

Zinc Launcher requires that Zinc be properly installed. It should work under Vista Media Center and 7 Media Center, although Vista is untested. Zinc Launcher will create an item in the extras library in 7MC, or under TV in VMC. Clicking on Zinc Launcher will launch Zinc.

  • Will attempt to hide the mouse as much as possible, and show the desktop for the least amount of time possible.
  • Both Media Center and Zinc windows will be automatically maximized during switching.
  • If you exit Zinc through the menu, Media Center will be brought to the foreground, maximized, and the mouse will be hidden.
  • If Media Center becomes the foreground window while Zinc is running, Zinc will be automatically closed.
  • Media Center playback will be stopped before launching Zinc.

Known Issues:
  • In Windows 7, on DPI higher than 125%, the taskbar will remain visible while switching between applications. I have no idea why, and will probably not look into this issue.
  • The icon looks bad in the Extras Menu, but it should look good on the home screen.
  • Mouse is visible longer than I'd like, will look into that. But it's not bad as it is.

  • Any exceptions will be logged (poorly) to %LOCALAPPDATA%\ZincLauncher\logfile.txt
