Simulate keypress after launching external application

Hi everyone It’s great to be here and be a part of the community. So far I am very fond of Intuiface. I am, however, in a bit of a pickle. Maybe someone can help me with my issue. I am launching an external application through my experience, and I need to simulate a keypress after it launches (the app starts with showing a configuration prompt with default settings. The “ok” button is targetted by default, so I only need to simulate a single “enter” keypress and pass it to the app). Is this possible with the parameters?

So far I tried the following:

  1. wshell.SendKeys(’{ENTER}’) on the action parameter
  2. echo. | appName.exe on the action parameter
  3. adding a delayed (1s) second launch external application action after the one that actually launches the third party app and calling the echo similarly to the taskkill dos command as shown in the example to turn a third party app off: https://support.intuiface.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007430251-Using-the-Launch-Application-action-to-run-third-party-Windows-applications

All of the above with no result.

I’m open to suggestions. I hope there is a way to do this form Intuiface, without any external scripts.

Hi @design and welcome to the Intuiface community!

The easiest way to achieve this will be to use https://www.autohotkey.com/
This third-party free software has been used by several Intuiface users already, you can see some threads here: https://community.intuiface.com/search?q=autohotkey
