Launch Application if Wireless Dongle is Connected

Hello,
I haven't searched if this has been done before (it probably has) because I don't even know what to search for really. I have zero experience with applescript and only a little familiarity with programming languages. Basically in words the summary of what I want the script to do.
If 802.11 n WLAN (my USB dongle for Wireless n) is connected
Launch the application "NewerTech USB Wireless Utility.app"
And turn off airport
Else turn on airport
Thanks for your help.
-Chris

You could use something like Marco Polo which is a software utility that can identify attached USB devices. Is a powerful application try it.
It's not an AppleScript solution, but it may do what you're looking for.

  • Launch Application Error in PC Suite in XP Laptop

    Hi
    I can download PC suite onto Windows XP laptop and use all its functionality with my 6230 phone
    But when I end my laptop session and logout I cannot use any of the functionality when log back into my laptop
    Get launch application error
    When I download PC suite again , all functionality restored but lost again when logout of laptop

    Hi,
    I think that problem can be releated to internet connection so could you try to start Launch Application when you have internet connection open and also when you do not have disconnected from net. Does problem happen in both cases?
    Anyway, I would be nice to get some log files from Launch application....(then I can try to find reason for this problem)
    If you can take those log files, do this:
    1. Go to ttp://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Filemon.html and download Filemon (it is end of the page).
    2. Start FileMon.exe and click 'Options', 'Filter/Highlight..' and set string: *Launc* to 'Include' option.
    3. Go to http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Regmon.html and download Regmon (it is end of the page).
    4. Start RegMon.exe and click 'Options', 'Filter/Highlight..' and set string: *Launc* to 'Include' option.
    5. Start "Launch Application" manually and when you get that error message, save logs from both applications and attach those log files to your response.

  • SGD - Fails to launch applications

    We are having a problem with SGD - we can not launch applications.
    We have SGD 4.2 running on a Solaris 10 server.
    We had SGD up and running good. However, we had several things occur and now it does not work. First we had to relocate our server due to building renovations. Then shortly after setting up the system in the new location, we had a hard drive fail. And unfortunately the sys admin guys did not have a good/current backup of the drive. We did however reload a backup that was about 9-months old. However it does not work correctly now.
    We can bring up the main SGD web page, can login to the system, and see the applications and function set up in object manager. However when we try to launch an application it fails.
    Looking in the error.log file we see a message "failed to open display"
    However we can not see how SGD sets the display to enable the application to be viewed over the web connection.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    It is a good thing to have as much help as possible. One of the other SAs working on the problem entered his google search a little different and came up with this hit: (http://blogs.sun.com/malhar/entry/sun_secure_global_desktop_tarantella -- text below) that fixed our problem. Thought I would post it here for the next person who runs into the same problem.
    Sun Secure Global Desktop (Tarantella) "DISPLAY variable not set" error message?
    If you've been facing a problem with the erstwhile Tarantella, now Sun Secure Global Desktop (SGD), where you get don't see X applications opening up when you click the link, you're in luck.
    I have the solution.
    If you are fast enough to click on the "Show Details" button before the application loading window opens and then closes, you will see in the logs that the application cannot open because it finds that the DISPLAY variable is not set.
    Also, if you read the documentation, you will see that the admin guide explicitly asks you to NOT set the DISPLAY variable which gets set automatically. So where's the problem?
    What you need to do is this:
    1. Open the /etc/rc.d/init.d/Tarantella script in your favourite text editor
    2. Look for TTASSHCLIENT (this is usually commented out)
    You will notice that the line will look something like this
    #TTASSHCLIENT="";export TTASSHCLIENT
    3. Uncomment the line
    4. Add /usr/bin/ssh -X inside the quotes on the line to make the line look like this
    TTASSHCLIENT="/usr/bin/ssh -X";export TTASSHCLIENT
    And restart!
    That's it. You're problem is solved. I accept your thank yous in advance

  • What launch application do I choose to upgrade to os maverick

    I have an Imac with os x 10.6.8 I am wanting to upgrade to maverick, but it is asking for a launch application? What am I supposed to select?

    Since you seen not to know too much about upgrading software and knowing where to do this,
    Before embarking on a major OS upgrade, it would be wise, advisable and very prudent if you backup your current system to an external connected and Mac formatted Flash drive OR externally connected USB, Thunderbolt or FireWire 800, Mac formatted hard drive. Then, use either OS X Time Machine app to backup your entire system to the external drive OR purchase, install and use a data cloning app, like CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper to make an exact and bootable copy (clone) of your entire Mac's internal hard drive. This step is really needed in case something goes wrong with the install of the new OS or you simply do not like the new OS, you have a very easy to return your Mac to its former working state.
    Then, determine if your Mac meets ALL minimum system install requirements.
    To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
    iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
    MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
    MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
    MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
    Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
    Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
    Xserve (Early 2009)
    Your Mac also needs:
    OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed
    2 GB or more of memory (I would strongly advise having, at least 4 GBs of RAM or more)
    8 GB or more of available space
    Next,
    If you run any older Mac software from the earlier PowerPC Macs, then none of this software will work with the newer OS X versions (10.7 and onward). OS X Snow Leopard had a magical and invisible PowerPC emulation application, called Rosetta, that worked seamlessly in the background that still allowed older PowerPC coded software to still operate in a Intel CPU Mac.
    The use of Rosetta ended with OS X Snow Leopard as the Rosetta application was licensed to Apple, from a software company called Transitive, which got bought out, I believe, by IBM and Appe  could no longer secure their rights to continue to use Rosetta in later versions of OS X.
    So, you would need to check to see if you have software on your Mac that maybe older than, say, 2006 or older.
    Also, check for app compatibilty  here.
    http://roaringapps.com/
    If you have any commercial antivirus installed and/or hard drive cleaning apps installed on your Mac, like MacKeeper, CleanMyMac, TuneUoMyMac, MacCleanse, etc. now would be a good time to completely uninstall this apps by doing a Google search to learn how to properly uninstall these types of apps.
    These types of apps will only cause your Mac issues later after the install of the new OS X version and you will have to completely uninstall these types of apps later.
    Once you have determined all of this, you should be able to find the latest version of Mavericks by clicking on the Mac App Store icon in the OS X Dock and then login to the Mac App Store using your Apple ID and password.
    You can then begin the download and installation process of installing OS X 10.9 Mavericks from the Mac App Store.
    Good Luck!

  • When trying to use my banking apps I get the error "Network Required  This application requires an active Internet Connection.  Please try again"

    When trying to use my banking apps I get the error "Network Required  This application requires an active Internet Connection.  Please try again".  This happens with two different apps from two different banks.  One of them works occasionally and have not figured out why.  I have cell signal and I am on a strong WiFi network.  Same thing happens when I turn off the WiFi too.    I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the app with no improvement.   I can't seem to find any setting that would cause this.   Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • BEFW11S4 v4 - wired devices work, wireless devices cannot connect to the Internet

    Greetings,
    I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless, ver 4. I have a PC connected directly to one of the Ethernet ports, and have no problem with that connection. I have a DSL service from Verizon. All devices are running Windows XP.
    My wireless Laptop, as well as other desktop with wireless USB adapter cannot access the Internet. It seems that I have a wireless connection between the router and these devices since my Laptop can see the SSID and the wireless network and connect to it. But when I try to launch IE explorer or use AOL, I am not successful.
    The frustrating part is that the wireless laptop used to work just few days ago and I haven't changed any set-up or added any hardware.  I have tried to re-install the router, and also did few resets...but nothing is working. 
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Elie

    Elie,
    From one of the wireless computer, wither desktop or laptop, try this to help isolate the issue:
    fo to Start>run> type "cmd" then click enter
    that would open MS DOS, type: Ping (your router IP address)
    For Example, if the router IP address is 192.168.1.1, then type:
    ping 192.168.1.1 then click enter
    if it does not come back with a time out, then you your PC is connected to the router. If it did time out, then it is the wireless connection.
    If so, check the wireless configuration on the router, as of SSID, security if any , etc.. and make sure that the wireless card in each desktop and laptop match those settings. Be aware that SSID is "case sensitive" so it has to match exactly the one in the router.
    hope that will help you in troubleshooting the issue

  • Cannot launch applications sometimes

    Hi there,
    I've got a knarly issue here. After a certain period of time (a couple of days for instance given that I leave the machine switched on) I cannot log into my computer via the screen saver password prompt (I just get the spinning ball, no login dialog displays). Additonally, at this time, I cannot ssh to the machine (whereupon I normally can). Finally, I have been doing something on the machine (using various applications) and then find myself unable to launch any other application via the dock (bouncing icon eventually times out). The latter problem has happened twice. In this instance I can still activate applications that are already running (they come to the front etc.). Additionally logging out in this instance is a problem and I have to force-quit things to get through the logout (including the Finder). Finally when it gets to actually logging out, I don't get the dialog to login again (just the clock style progress indicator with the bars which goes on forever).
    Very mysterious. I've a suspicion that the above problems are related.
    I have done a couple of things to this machine that may be relevant: increased the RAM; and (ii) updated the Pioneer DVR-110D firmware (this was a third party drive that I bought given that the original drive stopped working).
    I have run memtest on the memory with several passes. Everything reports ok. I realise that memtest won't necessarily report all faults, but I know that if it does report a fault, there's definitely a fault. I want to get my hands on the Apple Hardware Profiler to do another test - anyone know how to get it?
    Most importantly can anyone explain any of the symptoms I'm seeing? The machine is obviously still alive given the spinning ball when trying to wake up from sleep in the screen saver, and activation of existing application.
    Any clues and diagnostic ideas are greatly appreciated.
    Cheers,
    -C

    re: SSH. I presume you've enabled Remote Login on the
    affected Mac? Remote Login has to be enabled before
    the problem occurs if you are to SSH into a
    frozen/hung Mac. However, depending on the problem,
    the affected Mac may be so frozen or hung that you
    simply can't get in via SSH.
    I can normally log on to the machine using SSH. In fact, at one time, I established an SSH connection and then the problem occurred subsequently. My SSH connection, having already been established, allowed me to look around the machine.
    In lieu of the AHT, and as noted in my AHT FAQ, you
    can use Micromat
    TechTool Pro 4 for hardware testing. You want to
    use version 4.0.4 or later with Tiger, but it is best
    to use the latest version, which is 4.1.2. You'll
    want the CD so you can boot from it to run the
    hardware tests.
    I will look into this software now.
    Another small update: given that the machine went weird again yesterday I managed to mount a volume via AppleShare and have a look in /var/logs. However I didn't see anything really out of the ordinary. Given that these logs get archived on reboot, any ideas on something that I might look for?
    Once again the symptoms are that: I cannot su to any other account (whereas I normally can); and (ii) I cannot launch applications (also whereas I normally can of course). Apps are launched via the Finder Dock. I'm suspection that (ii) is caused by . The fact that I cannot su to any other user is most weird.
    The machine is now running without the non-Apple memory, Activity Monitor is running and I've disabled passwords being required to wake the computer up. Thus if it does go down again I should be able to do some more diagnosis.

  • IPad wireless ad hoc connection

    Since getting my iPad new some months ago I have been using an adhoc computer to computer wireless connections with a WEP security  with my laptop which uses a broadband USB wireless dongle. Since the past three days the iPad cannot connect to the Internet via this connection. The link is established showing that both devices are connected but the iPad network setting only shows an IP address and subnet number. The Router and DNS numbers remain blank.
    I have tried restoring the network settings on the ipad and making new connections but it stays the same.
    Any suggestions to rectify this would be appreciated

  • Nokia Launch Application has stopped working...

    Hi,
    I've just carried out a fresh install of Vista 32-bit and installed Nokia PC Suite (version 6.85.12.0) and I now get the following error after a few seconds, even if I'm not trying to run any of the apps:

    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
    The version I had before the re-installation worked perfectly.
    Is it possible to find that version again?
    Thanks,

    I would try to manually (through control panel I mean, no registry hacking) uninstall 6.84, connectivity solution and USB driver, then boot PC and then install 6.85 on a clear computer, if this problem, repair 6.85 through control panel and then decide whether to go back to 6.84
