Is there a way to configure Avalaunch to load a default application on startup?

For example, if I always wanted XBMC to load on startup, could I configure Avalaunch to start it up imediatly on boot?

thanks,
Mike

Why don't you just make XBMC your default dash, replacing Avalaunch?

Alternatively, you could assign XBMC to a <quickstart> button or trigger in config.xml.

OK I think that is the best sollution (to replace Avalaunch with XBMC). Thanks for the quick reply.

Now to replace Avalaunch with XBMC do I just rename the default.xbe with the xbe for XBMC? Or is it more complicated than that? I have searched for posts and found posts to make Avalaunch the default but not the other way around.

I am an almost complete newbie. I am able to FTP to my XBOX and have changed values in the Avalaunch config xml but that is the extent of my experiance.

thanks,
Mike

you could do one of two things, avalauch has a shortcut option which will let you run programs on startup if you hold a certain button or trigger which you assign, or you can rename your xbmc default.xbe file to whatever your bios looks for (my m8 bios looks for evoxdash.xbe to boot, so i rename whichever file starts the dashboard i want to boot on startup to evoxdash.xbe) always back up or copy the files you are editing in case you make a mistake.
