Not a problem!  ;) :D
You'll need PC Companion then in AHP:
  • Create a phantom module
  • Create a macro triggered by this module
  • In it execute the PC Companion "Time(0).bat" file located in the Batchfiles folder
  • Now have this phantom module or macro triggered by a timer each time you wish the time spoken

You can do the same for any of the batch files in PC Companion! Although I doubt you'd want the weather spoken as often! ;)

how do you set a timer to do something hourly? I only see options to set a specific time

also...when a batch file for PcCompanion is launch it opens a new PcCompanion each time, anyway to keep this from happening.

and finallym I dontated for the program, how do I unlock it now?

You create a event for each hour you wish the time spoken I'm sure you don't want it telling you the time when your trying to sleep! rofl
Companion only allows 2 instances to run 1 if you set it up like that!
Running a batch file opens companion and once the event is finished Companion closes (that's the way the batch files work)!

this is not what is happening on mine.....it opens says time, and stays open, and if it says time again it opens again and stays open.....if I select the option to have only one open, the time announce will not work at all....

which version of Companion you using?
Mine seems to close fine Unless I have many things going on at the same time and even then it not closing is rare!
In any case I'll dig into the code!
