Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Starting CHS via batch file quandary
« on: January 14, 2013, 10:17 AM »
RJ - untested as yet, but I believe you've hit on the problem.  I ran into this very recently in another batch file, that I use to install a bunch of programs silently. I had used the empty Title spec, "", for the Start command, but when I saw it shown as optional in the Help file (and there is no mention of it in its Notes either), I deleted it for conciseness, and then began having all sorts of problems. It took me weeks and some help to figure out that the Title spec is necessary when quotes are used in the file path, otherwise the file path is interpreted as a Title. And my CHS file path does have quotes.

Will make the switch, and fully expect this to solve the problem. Thanks much!

WinPatrol is an excellent program. I stopped using it only because I wanted to cut down on running processes.

Yes, there is a space or two, and yes I am using quotes. If I run the file path in a command window, CHS starts up with no problem. Somehow it's not complying with Batch syntax.


Clipboard Help+Spell / Starting CHS via batch file quandary
« on: January 10, 2013, 07:14 AM »

I'm trying to call CHS along with some other programs via a batch file that will delay their opening upon boot up. The problem I'm having is that if I just place the file path to CHS on a line, it opens fine, but the batch processing goes into wait mode and nothing else gets done. But if I use a Start command, a second CMD windows spawns but CHS does not execute. I'm not clear on why the Start command does not successfully execute CHS.


Ok, thanks mouser. The problem is young so I need to take more time looking at it.

Be well,

Clipboard Help+Spell / Interaction with the keyboard layout hook?
« on: August 11, 2012, 07:06 AM »

I'm just wondering if CHS has any interaction with the Windows keyboard hook, because a problem has developed here.

I'm on Win7 Ultimate /32bit (upgraded from Vista Business). On this machine I have the keyboard set to the Dvorak layout. I even removed the more common QWERTY layout from the system, to prevent accidentally switching back to it.

In the Opera 12.50 browser I was composing a forum post in a multiline vBulletin text box, and I used CHS to append some BBC formatting to some selected text via a custom Formatting Preset. As soon as I did so, the system blinked noticeably, and immediately the text box began responding to the QWERTY layout scheme rather than Dvorak.

I opened metapad, and there Dvorak was recognized, so I assumed the problem was Opera's. The Opera 12 series has been very buggy, so this made sense. I cycled Opera, and the problem disappeared.

That seemed to be that, until once again the system reverted to QWERTY last evening. This time, there was no Formatting Preset event, and now the reversion seemed to be systemic, affecting global hotkeys I have set up with the program Hotkeyz (on reflection, I don't really know if the problem was systemic, or affecting only Hotkeyz).

But I haven't had this problem in a very long time, and now I've got it again. The only other program I installed lately is SoftMaker Office. I don't use it much, and I don't see anything resident from it.

So that initial blink at the CHS Format Preset application has me wondering if is it possible that CHS is somehow affecting the keyboard hook.

Thanks for any input.
