    Streets and Trips 2004 - Autostart

    Does anyone have a fix, workaround, patch that will start streets and trips tracking automatically. Everytime I start the program I have to goto tools and click track position. Any ideas on how to make it start tracking without having to goto the menu and choose it?

    Nothing I have found would allow it to seamlessly auto start
    Alt+T+G+T get's kind of annoying.

    However I did find a good way to happen automagically

    I have found that microsoft "scriptit" rocks. It allows you to "sendkeys" as if you had pressed them.
    -- start.bat --
    @echo off
    scriptit.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets and Trips\start.ini"
    -- end start.bat

    -- start.ini --
    [SCRIPT]
    run="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets and Trips\strees.exe"
    Map - Microsoft Streets & Trips =!t#g#t
    -- end start.ini

    Just make a shortcut to the .bat file you created and tell it to run minimized so you don't see the command prompt window blip on your screen. Something minor like this happens so fast you hard recognize it's happening. Sure does save a LOT of headache doing it manually though. Good luck!

    Forum doesn't support .exe uploads, I found it by searching the net
