Unlike the built in command line handler/foo_runcmd, this component has full support for dynamically generated menu commands meaning you can use Edit commands and switch playlists, change output devices etc.


To avoid ambiguity with common names that might appear more than once under different sub menus, you must supply the full path to the command.


foobar2000.exe /run_main:Edit/Sort/Randomize
foobar2000.exe /run_main:Library/Search

// use double quotes when command contains spaces
foobar2000.exe /run_main:"Playback/Device/Primary Sound Driver"
