Dont start other programs

Postby reecemj » Fri May 03, 2019 10:26 am

Hi Steve, A button to not start any other programs would help when testing. Wont have to uncheck all the boxes. I only have 4. Lazy me! :roll:

Yes. Good idea - checkbox to disable all starting apps without checking them all saving the setup.

I've just uploaded preview 06. Will incorporate your idea in the Start Apps updates coming shortly.

Yes, several bugfixes should be a lot better than 05.

The importing and application of the plan altitude and pasting routes had an error. Some buttons were not working. There was a box disabled. That kind or thing. Just update over no need to reindex if you had 05.

By now you should find that IFPro can start anything. .exe .bat .htm .txt etc.

These can be started in any of these four time periods.

When IF starts,
When we start the flight with the Fly! button
When the SimConnect server connects
When the flight is fully loaded

To put a pause of time between starting programs we add in a delay item.
We do not make a time for when an application is started.

All outstanding items in delay at the end of one period are started without delays in their current order, before the next period is initiated. With no delay items included, each item is started one after the other. We must include the order in the list by moving up and down.


In the near future I will include an event at the end of the simulation. This will enable programs to be started when the simulator ends. That means programs can be closed after the simulator ends by starting a .BAT file. The actual stopping of programs will not be done by Ideal Flight itself.

At the moment we can start a .BAT file when IF starts to ensure some program is closed. The content of such a .BAT file will be something like:

Code: Select all
cd \
cd "C:\MyApps"
taskkill /IM MyApp.exe /F
