    So would anyone find it useful if I added the option of being able to execute some application(s) when the car is detected? I was thinking originally just using this in the X10 world, but figured that someone may want to execute some app instead, like opening an email client.

    Ok, version 0.2 released and available at: http://carpc.harteveldt.com

    I've added the ability to detect the car using a //Host/share combination.

    Ok... so that's good for the moment, well, at least for today!

    I've now released Verion 0.3. It can be downloaded at: http://carpc.harteveldt.com

    The latest version provides the ability to turn on and off the HCA usage and also allows the user to configure up to 4 windows apps that can be launched on detection of the car.

    Hmm, this sounds pretty cool. I already got a few ideas for it (mostly for fun) - when you pull in, have your server play a wav announcement, "Honey, I'm home!" Lol. Or more useful, if you have PC's you keep off during the day, when you pull it have the server execute wake on lan to boot up those PC's. Hmm, maybe I should get some of that x10 stuff.

    For my x10 controller, I'm able to run dos commands to turn things on/off. No need for any additional software. If your network detection software could run any dos command/s, then I would be laughing.

    Release of version 0.4

    Ok guys,

    I've released 0.4. The server can execute a HCA program of your choice. It can also execute up to 4 programs. I've also added functionality to enable the app to be used if you don't have HCA installed. This obviously opens this up now to a far wider ordiance. I'd like some testers and feedback please!!

    Can be downloaded from: http://carpc.harteveldt.com

    The next release will provide the option of playing a sound.

    Please let me know if it's of use and you use it.

    Thanks

    Skippy, Is there a place where I can still download this software? The site linked in your signature doesn't seem to be working. (at least I can't find any of the software there)

    Sorry, my server is down at the minute as it got hacked last week. I'll try and get it back up today.
