Hi

I am trying to use the tools feature.

I current have a couple of tools shortcuts with a couple of makefiles, works great for compiling code etc.

But I want to add a tool to open up a GUI window. In my case, open a serial port terminal. I don’t seem to be able to get tools to work when a GUI program is involved. It just hangs until i go “Stop Tools”. For example I would like to use Tera Term and run:

ttermpro /BAUD=9600 /C=7

I added the tool to do this, it seems to run the command line no problems, but the GUI window never shows up, the process appears in Task Manager, but the Window is invisible.

It also happens with RealTerm, another serial port terminal.

Any tips on what I should do? Would this even be possible?

Thanks in advanced.

Never mind, I got it to work. This is what I did:

Command:

cmd.exe

Parameters:

/c “C:Program Files (x86)teratermttermpro.exe” /BAUD=9600 /C=7

Previously, I was doing this:

Command:

“C:Program Files (x86)teratermttermpro.exe”

Parameters:

/BAUD=9600 /C=7
