  • SwyxIt! from version 3.20

[ Summary | Information | Links ]


Using the Visual Basic Script SwyxDial.vbs it is possible to provide SwyxIt! with a calling number.


The command line to start the SwyxDial.vbs looks like: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe "C:\Program Files\SwyxIt!\SwyxDial.vbs" //B CALLNUMBER where CALLNUMBER should be replaced by the number to be dialed, like z.B. 0023147770 or "+49 (231) 4777-0" Hint: when using spaces within the number quotation marks (") must be used. With this it is possible to create shortcuts on the Windows Desktop. Just use the above command line and set a name (e.g. Call Swyx) and an icon (e.g. C:\Program Files\SwyxIt!\SwyxIt!.exe) for the shortcut.
