App launch and exit Macro
« on: November 11, 2008, 12:34:34 AM »
Is there a tool which does the following?
1. Monitor specified applications
2. Whenever such an application is run, it executes certain commands, configured for that application
3. Similarly, executes certain configured commands, when it is closed.

I have certain add-ons, which need to be started before the parent program is started.. and closed after the parent program closes ...eg: Tidy Favorites for Firefox
(So, ideally the commands are to be executed, one after another
 ..i.e. wait for Tidy Favorites to run, and then launch Firefox
 ..because, some plugins take a long time to start)

Also, some programs add some unwanted files in folders like 'My Documents' each time they are run..
I would like to have a tool which automatically deletes such files when the program exits.

I found this tool called Stock Startup.. which can be used to batch start a set of programs
But, it does not do the waiting thing ..nor does it do anything on exit.

Pls share your views  :)
