Good evening,

My problem: i tried to build a launcher for an Arma3 Server (onlinegame). Till now i made the launcher ask for the location of the arma3.exe for saving that and running this .exe. The following problem is, that i have no clue how to autoconnect to an IP:Port. I found some codes online and tryed to do the same but i failed. 

Found these codes for C++ 


Process.Start("steam://rungameid/107410// -skipintro -mod=@HierDeinAddonName-connect=HierDieServerIP -port=HierDerPort")

Things i've tried:

Run("steam://rungameid/107410") ;this doesn't start the game

Run("S:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3.exe") ;this starts the game without connecting

;is there a way of running the first one with AutoIT?

I hope i could define the problem good enough for understanding. 


Thanks a lot for  reading. :) 



EDIT: I just figured out that 


is an URL and not a directory... I'm very sorry its to late for me -_- Still i would be glad if someone could help me with the autoconnection to a server.
