When launching Splat first time, got this:


When launching profile, got this:

(profile itself executed sucsessefuly)

I am on cyrillic Windows, that's the problem?
I must to add, i have troubles with all AHK-based programs, not exactly all but progs maded in couple last years, because old AHK apps works fine, e.g. some from Skrommel. Maybe in last versions of AHK was some changes connected with UNICODE?
Nothing was changed in my system in that years because all other non AHK apps works without problems

sorry for terrible english

Hi, rm, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Sorry to hear you're having trouble with Splat.  Which OS are you running on your computer?

Hello, skwire, thank you for quick reply
Win XP SP3, but can check tomorrow on Win 7
Have troubles couple months ago on 7 with another AHK app
I think thats all because of cyrillic locale
But why old AHK apps work fine?

What is the exact folder path that you're running Splat from?

Would you mind trying this interim build and see if it fixes both issues?

Is it possible to open Control Panel > Devices and Printers with Splat? I'm on Windows 7.

Yes, make a Run action with this, exactly, as the target:

Jody,
copy is broken here (with 'Action' selected). Doesnt work with Ctrl+C nor via context menu.
Didnt work in previous version either - I know it worked a short while back, but not sure which version (2 or 3 back?).

Win7 x64
Note: I use mouser's CH&S but also tested without it.

Odd, it seems to work here for me on v1.0.9.  Just to clarify, you're talking about manipulating entries in the Actions list, right?  Like this:

Yes, that's correct -
anyone else out there unable to copy Actions ?

Okay, I can confirm that this problem with copying is *nothing* to do with Splat, which is good news for you, but not so good for me :-(

Hi Jody,
Very nice program.
1 problem: my help file has no data-- the topics are listed, but the icon in front of each topic is a question mark & nothing happens when I click. I have downloaded it twice.
version v1.1.0 - 2015-01-27; win7 x64.

sifu, try this: Find the help file in windows explorer and right-click and show properties dialog for the file, then choose "Unblock" button.

Thanks, guys. That worked.

I can set up simple 1 to 1 hotkeys, but trying to combine them escapes me.
Example: I set up Shift+Win+G to open Gmail & Shift+Win+A to open Amazon.com. Both work fine.
I tried Shift+Win+Z as a Combo to do both:
  1st I don't know whether the hotkey goes in Filename or Arguments column, so I tried both. Neither worked. OK, probably faulty commands then.
  2nd I don't know the syntax for hotkeys in Splat system, I tried {shift}{win}G & {win}G
  Every variation I try gets the error message: "not launched successfully. ErrorLevel: 2"

I am evidently on the wrong track, so will await enlightenment.
Thanks.

Good to hear.

Example: I set up Shift+Win+G to open Gmail & Shift+Win+A to open Amazon.com. Both work fine.

I assume you set up each in a separate profile, right?  Something like this:

2015-02-01_221325.pngNANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination)

I tried Shift+Win+Z as a Combo to do both:
  1st I don't know whether the hotkey goes in Filename or Arguments column, so I tried both. Neither worked. OK, probably faulty commands then.
  2nd I don't know the syntax for hotkeys in Splat system, I tried {shift}{win}G & {win}G
  Every variation I try gets the error message: "not launched successfully. ErrorLevel: 2"

You can only hotkey a profile.  That is, you cannot hotkey individual entries so I'm not sure what you're doing here.  If you want to run two URLs with one hotkey, you can assign that hotkey to each profile like this:

2015-02-01_221554.pngNANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination)

Or, if you want to maintain your original separate hotkeys for each URL, then you can create a third profile with the Ctrl+Z hotkey that calls the first two profiles like this:

2015-02-01_221923.pngNANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination)

Or, you could do it like this:

Does this help to clear things up?

Yes, perfectly clear. I had thought the profile was just a "container" for the hotkey & that the latter was the "action building block." I had it backward.

Thanks so much for clearing that up.

I have a couple humble requests:

 1. add a notes column for the entries so I can remember why I added an entry and why its in that position
 2. save the launch log file for each launch profile so when I restart the program I can see what has been done and what hasn't  (since you aren't interested in adding checkboxes) - this "history" would display when the program is restarted
 3. Add an option to the Launch Profile to display the last log or start a new one  (there *is* an option already in the program options to "Clear log before each profile launch" - but mine isn't checked and the launch log for the profile is always empty when I restart the program... 1.1.0 build 1)
 4. Option in the menu to clear the launch log for the selected launch profile

Ah - one more idea.

I need to install a whole bunch of Windows Update files - .msu files.
I really don't much relish having to add the same command entry for each file.
It would be really nice if Splat had a batch command so I could run the same command on *each* file in a folder.
Then I could just have a single commandline entry and use a filemask like *.msu to run the command on all the files.
Something like:

Action:  Batch Run
Target:  c:\windows\system32\wusa.exe
Batch Directory:  G:\WindowsUpdates\Security Updates
Batch Target:  *.msu
Arguments: /quiet /norestart
Working Directory:
Log Each Batch Run:  true

It would display execution of each command in the log.
Right now I have to write scripts and have splat execute a script - but then I have to program something to get confirmation they were all executed....

(if anyone needs to do this, I wrote a simple application that will run wusa on every .msu file in a directory and its subdirectories)
