Windows Sound Mixer

Hi,

I've been working with AutoIt for a few months now and was very pleased with it.

I'm trying to do something now and suddenly for the first time I couldn't figure out a nice and elegant way to do it. Here's the thing. I have a bluetooth headset that serves as an Audio Device.

I need a program that'll:

A. Open the Sound and Audio Properties in the Control Panel and change the default device for Playback and for Microphone to the bluetooth headset.

B. Go to the audio mixer and un-mute the microphone and the line-in.

Any ideas how to go about doing that?

Thanks!

Y.

typically the easiest way to do a project like this, is to first manually accomplish your task, then automate the steps you had to take to do it. then you can analyze after the fact, and may be able to fine tune your working script to make it more efficient

Well, I kinda hoped for a better way than just simulating the clicks, perhaps some registry item whose change will accomplish that? something like that.

For example, there's an AutoIt command to mute that master volume, why isn't there one for the microphone, just for the sake of argument...?

So there's no better way then...?

Thanks anyhow for now...

there's always a better way. it sounded like you were looking for a way to get started, not someone to give you the way to do it.... :D

I played around with various alternatives, I was just hoping someone will know a simple way to do it, I figured out the complicated way to do it all by myself... :-).
