Another tip for MyDVD unseen button styles

Question

As the previous tip by freesky2 is locked, I have to put my contribution in a new topic.

 

I had copied various EMC 9 shortcuts that I use often in a folder in my F:\ (data) drive, and made a shortcut to that in my office toolbar, for easy access.

 

With that MyDVD shortcut I was getting the unseen button styles problem. What I found was that if the shortcut to MyDVD is not on the same drive as the app files, that is what happens.

 

However, the fix is to add in the short cut's properties in Start in box

 

"C:\Program Files\Roxio\VideoUI 9"

 

(including "")

 

Then MyDVD opened from that shortcut will display the button styles.

So the path above becomes like an argument to MyDVD exe file?

You add it in the Start in box, not the target box, so it is not an argument or parameter as such.

 

It just tells the shortcut that when executing the target line, it should look for any subsequent needed program files in the start in folder (and subfolders). So it's more like defining a PATH environmental variable for that shortcut.

Pesumably if the shortcut is on a different drive for some reason MyDVD doesn't quite know that, at least when it comes to where the button picture files are.

If you look through some of your shortcuts you will see that many other apps have a similar suitable entry in the Start In box.

 

Perhaps I should have made it clear that I was not getting the problem with the MyDVD shortcut in start/programs/Roxio EMC9/Video, which in my case is on the C:\ drive in Documents and settings\All Users\Start menu\... folder. Nor did I have the problem if I copied the shortcut anywhere on the C:\ drive. (including the desktop, which is where freesky2 placed his/hers).
