Macros that must be ran from the PC
« on: August 21, 2007, 04:12:40 AM »

I understand a macro that executes a windows command must be ran from the PC but does this mean that AHP must also be open for it to run?

For my testing I'm using an executable file that simply plays a song when M8 off is sent.  When AHP is open it works fine but doesn't work when closed.  I presume it's because there has to be some software running to receive the command and run the macro. 

I can trigger the macro from another macro stored in the CM15 while AHP is running.  Is there a way to trigger another macro or a program without AHP running, something in SDK maybe? 

The process x10nets.exe is always running, does that have something to do with running macros from the PC?

True ;)

You need a program running built with the SDK which can create macros in its program! X10Dispatcher can do this as can BVC as well! ;) :D
