Is this still a valid suggestion thread? If so, I'd love to see a folder for auto-run programs on bootup, for patches and the like, that the user could alter. Maybe also include that "show all directories" patch.

Ndless 3 had a retentive install, right? I think it does...

Also, perhaps a "patch" directory where we have a partial duplicate directory tree. The duplicate tree would be copied over the original upon bootup, files included, replacing old ones.

Edit: tenses, and more suggestions.

I believe the topic is still valid, as Ndless is still being worked on (although i believe it's more active when TI blocks it)

The startup feature is already supported ;)

oh, good. then, a patching program shouldn't be too difficult.

What I'm wondering in particular is if Ndless will be ported to the prototypes from which dumps were successfully made. Would the hardware be too different to allow this to happen?

First we need to manage to get some code running, and I think then we can focus on porting Ndless.
However, not too many people have a CAS+, so it's not the most important thing to do right now.

Would it be possible to add a command or something to add things to the settings menu and other menus/context menus. You could easily modify bootup programs without closing a document or in testing mode.

Almost everything is possible, but lots of things are not documented. AFAICT, this one belongs to that class ;)

Could it be possible for Ndless to run a program when the calc turns on? I don't mean when it boots, but when it just goes to the homescreen.
Thinking about something like a password program, it wouldn't help much to have one that only pops up after the calc reboots :P

I thought there were startup programs. For example, you can have nClock launch every time you boot and the little clock will appear.
I also recall that a password program exists for the Nspire...

Edit: Aha! Found it here

Yes, but he is not asking for the program to launch on boot, but when turning the calc on ;)

This feature could become a security issue without a key combo to bypass it (as it exists for the startup feature). And this one would make the feature useless if the password screen is the only use case.

It wouldn't be completely useless, since not everybody would know about the key combo.

You could still bypass it by rebooting and then pressing the key combo.

Tho the vast majority of people wouldn't know the key combo... anyway..

[necro]
I had the Nspire hooked up to the Computer Link and ran a Ndless program, and the Link (and in turn Windows) freaked and the usb hub I had it plugged into was shut off.
Might it be possible, for when a usb cable is plugged in and a ndless program is launched, for the calc to mimic whatever it sends during APD or something like that so the software doesn't start causing problems?
