So long,

Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

Step 1: Insert a transistor connected to the data out cable

Step 2: Write a driver for the thingy that would send data to the data out cable, then stop sending data, then start sending data again!

Just some ideas.

th.meger,

I think what amdead wants to do is turn the usb port off and back on using a script in order to blink his Christmas lights in any pattern he likes.

I too would be interested in knowing if this is possible with AutoIt.

I think it would be rather easy to do in assembly, but I am not sure.

Here is working link to neat deveject CLI utility that mentioned in link above.

But likely enabling device back is not possible without reboot. At least I can't found any way to do that.

First, download devcon: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311272

Next, you have to find the device ID for the lights thingy.

command from the console:

devcon.exe status *

Find the appropriate ID and copy it down somewhere safe.

Okay, let's go through the program:

while 1
   ;;Run the command "devcon enable " & $deviceID
   Sleep(4000)
   ;;Run the command "devcon disable " & $deviceID
   Sleep(4000)
wend
