Re: Adding titles, images, and files

As an alternative, EMDB (https://www.emdb.eu/) does this for you automatically. Just point it a location where movies are stored using the Hard Disk icon in the menubar.

Re: How to send a ping signal to detect if a computer is online or not

How to send a ping signal to detect if a computer is online or not A 'ping' does not detect whether a computer is online or not... it just detects whether a remote device is configured to respond to an 'echo request'. As such, it's not a failsafe method to test whether a remote computer is 'online'.

Re: Run A Program As Admini But Without The UAC Prompt

RunAsTask() as been around for 6 years. I use use to run a PowerShell script to update Chocolatey installed apps. I know the risks and I do not need to be reminded every time I run the script!. I don't believe there is an issue here. RunAsTask() can be found here: https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/...

Re: Script Runs When NO Mouse Movement

Or, if you need your script/program to start earlier in the boot process (for example, to run Process Monitor to watch login events), use 'run as TaskMan'. It's a registry location that runs a value (executable) assigned to a Taskman entry in the context of WINLOGON, i.e. even before Explorer waits ...

Re: Random behavior in script. How do you know where Sleep commands are necessary?

I tend to agree with Nixcalo 's assessment of Windows 10 but there's a reason. By comparison with Windows 7/8.x, Windows 10 does a lot more constant background processing, particularly logging but also registry accesses. If you use Sysinternals/TechNet' s free, portable Process Monitor ( https://doc...
