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.

Features:
  • 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.

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