O.P. [request] Run a command prompt command
Can somebody please make a script that runs a custom command prompt script, when a set event happens.

I want to use WLM with Growl, and I want to run 'growlnotify [username] has logged in', where username is the person that has logged into WLM.

There is a Javascript library on the Growl Website for integrating programs, but I couldn't work out how to integrate it into a script...

The websites: http://www.growlforwindows.com/gfw/developers.aspx

Cheers.
:)

Take a look at This Script I made a few years ago. It might be what you're looking for.

Not quite what the OP was looking at. Currently at this time there isn't (to my knowledge) a way to integrate the two together. The only possible way would be to create an executable (using the SDK on the site) and calling it from the script.

Don't they provide an executable like that? growlnotify.exe can send Growl notifications and can be executed from the script I linked to.

My bad I didn't realize that it had that capabilities. I stand corrected.

Cheers it seems to be just what I need :) , I have it using growlnotify to alert me in Growl For Windows in Parallels on my Mac, then forwarding it to Growl on my Mac as WLM alternatives are so bad for OSX.

But do you know if it would be possible to make it so that it sends the contact name to the command script so I can see who is signing in, and also add support for other events, such as a new message?
If so could you point me in the right direction into adding this in?

Cheers
