Title: Tool to check if prosim is running and launch programs
Post by: mariodantas on March 13, 2017, 04:02:43 AM
Hi fellows, I developped yesterday a very little application that checks if prosim runs or not, and open / close programs in a list

I.E. I have many networked PC's in my homecockpits and I want to launch some applications only if prosim runs, otherwise I want to close apps automatically, well, that's what this little application does

The app must run in networked PC's a point to prosim IP and PORT to check if it is running

You must fill the list of application to be runned if prosim is running and to be closed if prosim server closes.

Please feel free to check it and some feedback will be appretiated.

EDITED:

V2 is available at http://www.sim-services.net (http://www.sim-services.net).

You need to lauch the application with administrative privileges if you intend to auto launch software that require these privileges also.

check also http://www.sim-services.net/ (http://www.sim-services.net/) for more software

Hi Trevor, I'm working in an improved version of this tool

Before developping this I used WideFS with lua to start prosimdisplays and other software in remote clients, but since wideFS lua scripts others than initial.lua responds only when sim is ready to fly (and you need also a registered version of fsuipc and widefs to do so) I create this app to start all software related to prosim in networked PC's as SIOC per example and prisimMCP, prosimCDU, prosimDisplay etc... even if simulator is not running (so no need of fsuipc to start things with prosim).
