I have installed the launch manager but i cannot find any settings to change the acer arcade button..there are only 3 options, one is an option to change the browser when the browser key is pressed, second is the mail and the third is empowering technology. No options to change the program that launches when the acer arcade button is pressed. Please help sir.
Hi Emerson... download Application Forwarder (Download here)...
extract Application_Forwarder.zip to windows media center executable folder. Application_Forwarder.zip contains two files : ap-setting.exe and rename-me.exe
insert path to Acer Arcade Deluxe ... and click Save...
then please rename rename-me.exe exactly the same as Windows media center executable file. - don't forget to rename windows media center executable file to another name first.
I build this application in just a minute ago.... let me know if this little application fails....
let's share our knowledge in this blog... to help others...

we love Acer, we love Acer user...

first, thanks mr cahya for this blog, it was really helpful. Secondly, for all those who have problems opening Arcade Deluxe with the Acer Arcade button, here is the solution!
For some reason, after installing arcade deluxe, the arcade button will open any other media player in ur pc, but arcade (in my case it was winamp) In windows xp, the button is called "My Aspire" and it's function cannot be remapped using Launch Manager, but it can be set to use whatever app u want using Launch Manager's registry entries! just follow this steps:
open start - run
type regedit and hit enter
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Compal\LManager\Settings\Buttons\My Aspire
(note: the compal folder may be different in ur case, if u cannot find it, just search for LManager or Buttons using Edit - Find command)
once there, right click on Command and choose modify. Under the Value Data field write your Arcade Deluxe.exe path and hit enter. Then right click Command Type and choose Modify again. Under Value Data field, type 1 and then click OK. Ur done, this should make ur Arcade key open Arcade Deluxe like a charm
also see photo i attached
U can also use any other button in the Buttons folder for remapping! Just repeat the steps above! Hope this helped :)
Thank you.... !
