As a bonus, included with the Keyboard Redirector package is a program called
I designed this program to quickly and easily launch and switch between
running application using my remote. In Keyboard Redirector I've mapped the
MCE button on my remote to launch ApplicationLauncher.exe. Then using just
Left, Right, Up, Down and Enter I can switch to any running application or
launch one of the shortcuts I've defined. I can also use the number keys to
launch the shortcuts directly.
Additionally, the shortcuts can be configured to switch to the application
if it's already running instead of launching a new instance of the app. This
means I can press MCE, then 9 on my remote and Winamp will be in focus regardless
if it was already running or not.
