Title: Parameters for launch
Post by: Amis on May 07, 2008, 11:03:35 PM
I would like to ask for parameters with what i can launch Profiles.exe to automatically select a profile at start so I can run the chat automatically at Windows start without clicking anything.

Something like: "IceChat7/Profiles.exe" -profile:MyProfile
or (since this exe contain profiles only): "IceChat7/Profiles.exe" -MyProfile

You dont run the Profiles.exe with the parameter, you run IceChat with the parameter.

IceChat7.exe -profile ProfileName

Well... for me entering -profile "Amis" makes the chat run the firststart popup and even if i go step by step in it at the end the next button stop working, so only way is that i close the firstrun then the icechat starts with defaulth settings.

Ignore me  :wink: i copy-pasted that what you posted and it left a letter "e" in it from the end of the IceChat.exe name  :lol:

Next question: any TRAY command?

What do you mean by a TRAY command?
You mean, /tray?  Try it. Also, SHIFT-F11 will put it on and take it off the tray.

I mean something like: Icechat.exe -tray
So it starts then go to tray automatically like MSN or other IM programs.

You could make a script for it, just add this to an empty script file, or at the beginning of an existing one. It's important that you don't put it inside a function or a sub, because it won't work as it should then

Code: [Select]
SendCommand "/tray"

Note to myself: If you have any kind of problem/suggestion just ask Morio on IRC.
