2. Makesure all Video/Audio, VobSub and Bonjour (Apple AirPlay) Codedc already installed on Windows 7.
2nd Step : XBMC Installation
1. Run xbmc-12.3.exe Installation File and follow on screen instruction (simple 3 click instruction)
|The XBMC Installation Process|
2. Finish the installation, then run XBMC to test that nothing wrong in installation process and XBMC run perfect. Then quit XBMC, don't change any setup yet. If you change it now, then you need to do it again later.
|Test Run after Installation|
3rd Step : To Set XBMC Auto Boot on Windows 7 Boot
1. Download 2 required file here

- https://www.dropbox.com/s/gw1t030z89nul95/xbmc.vbs.txt (this file is another command file that tell windows to run xbmc.exe and run explorer.exe on exit/quit)
2. Please make sure command inside xbmc.cmd.txt as follow
|start /max wscript.exe xbmc.vbs|
3. Please make sure command inside xbmc.vbs.txt as follow
|Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")|
|Return = WshShell.Run(chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\XBMC\XBMC.exe" & chr(34) & " -p -fs", 3 ,true)|
4. Copy both xbmc.cmd and xbmc.vbs into XBMC Folder (C:\Program Files\XBMC\)
|Set XBMC to auto boot on start|
and now Acer Revo will boot directly into XBMC and run explorer.exe if quit XBMC.
