Adding to {run}

Post by Chris » Sat Jul 10, 2021 4:44 pm

I have a program that needs a command at the end of it in order to start. I tried to create a shortcut for it and point TypeItIn to the shortcut but that doesn't work. Is there a way to add --instance Nougat32 to the end of the {run} command.

This is the path behind the program. If I take --instance Nougat32 off the program doesn't start.

"C:\Program Files\BlueStacks_nxt\HD-Player.exe" --instance Nougat32

You can use {Run ProgFileName,Parameter} like

{Run C:\Program Files\BlueStacks_nxt\HD-Player.exe,--instance Nougat32}

From the Help File:

Run program
Description: Run an external program or file.
Example: {Run notepad.exe} or {Run C:\Program Files\Example\Test.exe} to run a program.

You can also "run" a file that has a program associated with it. For example {Run example.txt} will open the Example.txt file in your default text editor, and {Run Sales.doc} will open Sales.doc in Microsoft Word. {Run wavget.com} will open wavget.com in your default browser. If the program requires a command line parameter, use {Run ProgFileName,Parameter} like {Run RebuildDisk,/b/r}.

Regards,
Paul.
