Question for some of you programmers

Recommended Posts

Have you guys ever attempted to automate any part of the FSX startup process? If so what have you done?

What do you mean automate the startup process?  

SIMstarter NG is a close as I can think of as an app that might automate the startup.

Some payware aircraft have macros built into them to start various systems and set switch positions, and I believe you might be able to use FSUIPC to do this.

I use LUA scripts inside FSUIPC, e.g. my ipcInit.lua:

ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\fsrealtime\\FSRealTime.exe', EXT_CLOSE)
ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\WhereAreMyAircraft\\WhereAreMyAircraft.exe', EXT_KILL)
ext.runif('C:\\Program Files (x86)\\EZCA2\\ezlauncher.exe')
ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\AivlaSoft-EFB\\AivlaSoft.Efb.DataProvider.exe')
ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\AS16_FSX\\AS16.exe', EXT_CLOSE)
if ipc.buttons("Y") >= 256 then
  ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\SPAD\\Spad.exe')
  ext.runif('D:\\FSX\\VRInsight\\bin\\VRiSim.exe')
end

(the "if" checks if my yoke is connected and only then starts the two extra programs for things I have attached to the yoke)

In particular I want to deal with the annoying popups that always occur if you install something new, do you want to run xyz something or other? YES.  That way I never have to worry about those again. I'd also like to deal with boxes that only have OK as an option as well.  Is this possible in a .NET language?
