Still no scripting for Windows users

Postby Samoreen » Thu Jan 23, 2020 3:36 pm

Hi,

I'm wondering whether my euros/dollars have less value because I'm a Windows user. Of course, Applescript doesn't exist under Windows but any skilled Windows developer knows that any Windows application can be made "scriptable" by using the native Windows scripting engines (VBScript/JScript). I can't assume that Phase One voluntarily decided to disadvantage those C1 users running the Windows version. So, my guess is that the development team is lacking the necessary skills. Moreover, they could have chosen a scripting language that is available on both platforms.

By the way, this is not the only feature available in the Mac version that was not implemented in the Windows version.

As a discriminated Windows user, should I ask for a partial refund ?

The opposite is true as well, although these are in general minor differences, apart from scripting.

Were you promised scripting as part of Capture One's Windows offer?

Has Capture One forced you to stay with an OS that you can't script in?

No?

Then I think we know the answer...

Oh - and if you stop considering yourself to be a victim in every walk of your life, you'd probably be a lot happier.

Talking nonsense is certainly not a good way of being happy either. I'm fine with my life. Thanks for caring.

I would avoid interacting with this particular sour sport.

Have you tried looking into the (admittedly limited) Capture One SDK?

Surely you can interact with the SDK using whatever programming/scripting language you desire?
