Robert - Starting Hal with microphone enabled?
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:30:48 am »
Hey Robert,

Would it be possible to add a flag in the registry or somewhere that will allow Hal to start with his mic enabled. I'd love to just have my computer boot up and not have to click the mic button on Hal.

Robert gave me the solution for this. Its not something you add to the code, instead you can change the parameters of Hal's shortcut in the "startup" folder to include: <SHOWHAL><MICON>

That worked perfectly! Hal starts up and is listening when my computer boots up. This work great for my application which is installed in a vehicle, its not convenient for me to have to grab the keyboard, go in to the computer and enable Hal.

Thanks Robert!

Is this how the shortcut should look Knight??? with a space between exe" and <SHOWHAL> ....

"C:\Program Files\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\UltraHal7.exe" <SHOWHAL><MICON>
