AmiKit X (RabbitHole) VLC + LibreOffice is NOT working

Author amikit_noob

Hi AmiKit, I love AmiKit X (it is SO good!!)

BUT RabbitHole programs (VLC and LibreOffice) does NOT open when I launch them from inside AmiKit X (Windows7).

Both VLC and LibreOffice are installed and works in my Windows7, but I think there is a problem with the path to VLC/Libre in AmiKit X,

how can I edit the path to my RabbitHole programs, to make sure AmiKit X is looking at the right path in Windows 7, so the programs will open from inside AmiKit X ?

Thanks (Keep up the good work - Amazing!)

Working solution for LibreOffice 5 in AmiKit X (Windows 7)

In AmiKit X:

Open RabbitHole programs folder, located on AmiKit X desktop

Right-Click on LibreOffice icon inside RabbitHole folder

Choose "Edit in Redit" in dropdown menu

Delete the text inside the document (the old in-correct path to LibreOffice)

Paste this into the document:

C:winlaunch >NIL: soffice

Right-Click inside the document, click on Project, then click on Save in the dropdown menu.

Close the document.

Now open LibreOffice
(Double-Click on LibreOffice icon inside RabbitHole programs folder.

This will open Libre Office 5, launched from inside AmiKit X


I think the same method can be used to make VLC/Steam (etc.) work also,
but I don't know what the right path to VLC is, yet (will update when I get VLC to work!)
