4. Using Autohotkey

AutoHotkey has a brief tutorial and overview, which explains the basics of using the program.

When using AutoHotkey with these command-line utilities there are a couple of issues to look out for:

  • The command-line utility will not run while the product software is connected to the USB device (e.g. usccmd cannot run while the Maestro Control Center is connected to a servo controller).
  • Only one instance of the command-line utility can be running at a time. If you try to run two commands in a row without using AutoHotkey’s RunWait, the command-line utility will not work.
  • Commas(,) in command-line utility commands need to be escaped with backtics (`).
