Re: [wuhu_software_group] Re: WUHU feature request: Growl notifications
- Gotcha but I believe there's no reason to "support" Growl as the Action/Alert should be able to do what you want through Growl as you've attempted. I suspect once you get it sorted out you'll be fine. Heath is really good at helping us solve our issues.

Don, I'm looking to do more than just make a sound. For example, I could have Growl forward alerts from my WUHU machine (a netbook which I do not use daily) to my other machines (Mac/Linux).

The day Microsoft starts making vacuum cleaners is the day they start making something that doesn't suck.
- I believe your use of the double quotes is the problem.
C:\Program Files\Growl for Windows\growlnotify.exe "/a:WUHU "/t:WUHU: High Outdoor Windchill" "/n:WUHU: High Outdoor Windchill" %OutdoorWindchillF%"
Each argument can be double quoted and there is an overall double quote for all arguments.
""arg1 with spaces" "arg2 with spaces""
See what I mean?
