Control Panel

16 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to execute something in the control panel? More specifically, I'm trying to open up the (Advanced) SMS client so I can input the sitecode. I cannot find the executable in the program files folder, so I figure this is the next step.

Help? :)

See http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=409035 for an example of how to open a cpl file and - in that example - go to a particular part of the applet.

Edit - my edit broke the link

Look in that post to get yourself to some options in control panel. While there's no SMS there but maybe there's similar way to get it working for SMS (google?)

Hrm....

control.exe works (in bringing up control panel) but the syntax you posted does not bring up the SMS config client, unfortunately.

look in system32 folder for cpl files, see if one will open the SMS

There are way too many "See here: link" responses. If you are going to post a link, at least post a summary or something.

Excellent suggestion! I found the CPL file and when I double click it, it opens. When I set up the syntax in AutoIT:

Run("C:\WINXP\system32\CCM\SMSCFGRC.cpl")

I get the error msg:

C:\Documents and Settings\<removed>\Desktop\Projects\SMS Configuration\AI_SMS_CONFIG.au3 (1) : ==> Unable to execute the external program.:

Run("C:\WINXP\system32\CCM\SMSCFGRC.cpl")

But when I throw:

C:\WINXP\system32\CCM\SMSCFGRC.cpl

into the run box it loads up. :)

Ah ha! I figured the run command was the same a basically double-clicking a file. :">

Thanks for the tip! :)
