also try to deleted and install timer
I delete the timer and reinstalled it (by downloading the Zip file as it wasn't listed in DCUpdater after deleting it for some reason).  Once reinstalled I got the internet explorer settings box showing (exactly the same before (ie. with setting details in it)). I then clicked on send and it all seemed ok. DCUpdater is listing it and shows the same version as before (1.01.13).

It will now accept timers if I press enter, but it still doesn't accept period/full stop. From my point of view it now works and is easy to use.  However, somebody else might still have a problem as the forum tends to refer to period rather than pressing enter. So I'm happy but it might need a look to make the documentation clearer for other people.

Thanks for the help on this.

It should work without period as well just by hitting enter. try to type "tm settings" and check if everything is set correctly :up:
Period doesn't seem to do anything.

Pressing enter just results in the timer message window closing and FARR showing "Found 0 results in 0 seconds" under the input box.

If I then type "tm" into the input box it says "Next event in: no timer set" at the bottom of the timer message window.

If I type "tm settings" then it display the mainly blank timer message window (with the "TYPE:" message at the top, date and time at the bottom and the "no timer set" message at the bottom). Then after a few seconds the "timer settings - windows internet explorer" box opens).

I've read this thread and searched the whole of the forums but I still can't get this to work.

If I type (for example)

tm in 20 Hello

then I get the message box with all the details of the countdown (20 seconds, text: hello), so far so good. But I can't get it to accept the entry.

This thread seem to imply that I need to press period (.) but that doesn't work. It just puts adds the period to the entry. I've also tried enter, tab .... with no success. I can't find any way to get it to accept the countdown.  Am I doing something wrong or is this a problem with me having a UK rather than US keyboard (altough Period / Full Stop are both in the same place).

Find And Run Robot / Launch Method: Method 2 - ShellExecuteEx
« on: September 02, 2008, 06:21 AM »
The two launch methods are either ShellExecute or ShellExecuteEx.  But as I don't understand the difference between these two API functions I'm not sure what the difference is. Can anybody provide an explanation.

I ask because at some point I switched to method 2 (either I was just playing around or it was to solve some issue). The problem is that method 2 doesn't launch RDP (remote desktop configuration files) I get an error "The parameter is incorrect".

If it helps these are RDP files (and not shortcuts to RDP files) in the start menu. They work fine if I use the start menu to launch them.

Thanks Mouser.  I didn't see it down there under lists. I guess I was assuming it would have been up in the General or Keyboard interface section.
