@ScottC, that's interesting. Usually I don't have to add the start prefix, or the exit command to my batch file, but there might be something about your particular batch file that requires those.
Good job figuring it out.
@daniel-lfc, what exactly are you saying to Alexa?
I just said both of these sentences and they worked for me:
Alexa, ask TRIGGERcmd to run game on family.
Alexa, ask TRIGGERcmd to run chrome on family.
Also, what does Alexa say back to you?
@danielfruth, both skills work the same way, so if you use one of the two Alexa skills - TRIGGERcmd or TRIGGER command, then you'll have to say one of these:
Alexa, ask TRIGGERcmd to run X
Alexa, ask TRIGGER command to run X
If you use IFTTT, it's a more complicated setup, but you get to say something like this:
Alexa, trigger X
I told kent-scherler he could use the TRIGGER command skill because it does avoid saying TRIGGER C M D.
