Question for some of you programmers

Recommended Posts

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?
