    it would be really cool to have a play artist function (i.e. I type into launchy “play artist: radiohead” and it starts playing radiohead songs. I’m guessing the only way this could be accomplished would be a macro where the search hotkey is pressed, the text string is entered, and then the play hotkey is pressed…

    Anyhoo, thanks for the good work! And if you haven’t tried it yet, ituny + windows speech recognition macros = sweet. You can verbally tell the computer to do anything you’re typing in launchy.

    Thanks for the comment frogstomp19x. Actually i haven’t test iTuny that way and sounds really cool 😀

    I’m working on something like what you’ve asked. I see if i can make the code work like you wanted 🙂

    iTuny is about to be RC and i hope to release a new full version over weekend.

    Hi Pedro, well that happened to me too. When I updated iTunes iTuny suddenly stopped working but was a problem with the iTunes installation.

    After I upgraded iTunes started to behave on a weird way. Everytime I starter iTunes it told me to wait until iTunes installation was configured. Then when trying to run an iTuny Command it gave me an error.

    I had to do this https://www.frisley.com/2008/04/29/aleluya-itunes-works-again/ in order to fix that install.

    Sadly the fix on the post is for QuickTime and Windows Live Mail, but the fix for iTunes goes on the same direction.

    Try to use the Windows Events Manager to cach which registry entry has the problem. (if this is the error)

    Hopes this helps.
