MCE Launcher – Configure which programs are launched when MCE buttons are pressed

I’ve been using XBMC for some time as my HTPC driver. Having an MCE remote though, its buttons are configured to run Windows Media Center. I ran into the following blog post that offers a way to change this, but I didn’t like the implementation:

  1. It replaces the wrong file (ehshell.exe instead of  ehtray.exe) which caused me some issues
  2. It uses hard-coded locations and is specific to XBMC
  3. The code is not green in Resharper 🙂

So I took the code and generalized it to a small program that lets you configure exactly which program will be launched by which MCE button. The result: MCE Launcher (see the Readme file for installation and configuration).
