Is there any way to launch an application once I receive an email. I have an executable created in autoit and I am running it regularly on daily basis using task scheduler on windows. And sometimes I am running it again manually if someone asks to. Is there anyway to configure an email so that when I send a mail to that particular email ID then it should launch that exe directly?
Hi all. I am creating an app that runs a program with the admin privileges using the shellexecute's run as verb, but what my problem is, that no matter what I use to launch the program, it doesn't quite work like the run dialog would (certain programs don't get found, etc.). I've tried using the explorer.exe and passing the program to it, that is unreliable and opens documents folder sometimes instead, I've tried using the @comspec /c and that works better, but still some of the programs aren't being found that would be with the run dialog e.g., if I do @comspec /c diskpart it won't find it, I've even tried setting the working dir, but still no luck. I also tried passing commandline params to C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,#61, but no luck. can anyone help me what way to go in order to be able to launch programs in the run dialog style? is there a function in winapi that run dialog uses that I could use as well? Or what would be the best way to go about this? Any help much appreciated.
I wrote this power user tool a long while back and it originally had baked in commands and wasn't very extensible. I rewrote the tool and made use of the power and openeness of AutoIt. Some of you may find the concept and/or UI approach interesting (as well as useful) which is why I'm posting here. In all likely-hood, it could be rewritten entirely in AutoIt but that's not something I plan on doing. Good chance there are similar tools out there as well especially since I've sat on this for so long. In short, the tool provides a snazzy user interface (no two interfaces will look alike) which opens right over whatever your working on so you can quickly launch any number of chained AutoIt scripts. My all-time favorite being; normalize clipboard text. https://winclickpro.codeplex.com/ I haven't shared the tool or concept with anyone outside of publishing it so I'm curious to see what people think.
My first project outside of work Since I have literally hundreds of games and programs installed on my pc, even using the start menu can get me lost when looking for a specific thing. With this, you can drag/drop any file or shortcut onto the GUI. Then you can open any file from the convienient GUI sitting on your desktop. 5 different "tabs" or lists allow you to sort and organize your files to make them easier to find when your lists get long. Latest Version 220.127.116.11<-11/8/13 (or 8/11/13 for the European people) You can get the included help file here for a more indepth look at what this program can do and how it works. I've removed the purchase requirement (it's free again) and added a donate button to the installer. Bugs, suggestions and comments are welcome!
