Batchrun 4.1
« on: December 12, 2006, 01:19:02 AM »
in relation to questions posed in this thread: Is it possible to start a program when you first start LanchBar Commander?.

i'd like to introduce Batchrun 4.1

Quote from: website
Batchrun will let you create batch files using a graphical interface. In the good old days of DOS .bat files took care of this task. They still do, but they're not exactly user friendly. With Batchrun .brs batch files you can launch any number of programs or dialup connections with just a simple click. You can control the starting process with many properties like priority or run mode and control their behavior a tad. You can even do more than starting programs with the built-in file management functions like Copy, Rename, Makedir, Delete and End Process. Batchrun batch files can be launched from Explorer or placed in StartUp folder or on the Desktop.

wow! this is good news. i never thought there'd be any more updates to Batchrun. however, i can't think of an instance to use the 'Text to Clipboard' command. some pointers on its usage would be nice.. :)

I needed it myself to create a script that launched the game Warhammer Online in Idle Priority and copied the login password to clipboard, so I could paste it to the login window. So this feature went in.

thanks for the portable edition.. when it comes to Batchrun users, i seem to be part of a select group of one. :)

i also have a small suggestion, pertaining to the "Register Brs file type" command. this command does not seem to be optimized for long file names. however it can be fixed by putting filepath within the double quotes ("%1").. you can see the difference in the screenshots..

We had 10.000 dowloads in 2 days, so it seems not to be that bad. ;-)

--

The code already contains double quotes, checked both in the program and the installer.

my registry looks like this:

Shell | Edit | Command

C:\Projects\Batchrun\Batchrun.exe -edit "%1"

that is great news, it shows that it's worth working on this app.. :up:

ok, now i understand why this happens.. your example shows filepath with no space unlike the setup file which installs to 'C:\Program Files\Batchrun' so i just put the quotes around filepath as well and that seems to have solved the problem.. :)

"C:\Program Files\Batchrun\Batchrun.exe" -edit "%1"

is it possible to add a feature that enable users to check whether the items listed are still available? i have a long list of items in one of my batchrun files and it's quite hard to check one by one.
