I realize this is an old thread but it needs to be pointed out that this is not the only way to control X10 from TRIGGERcmd.
The software "X10commander" is a third party software built using the X10 SDK sample program AHCMD which uses the x10 driver (dll). You can directly call this Windows sample program with TRIGGERcmd or use 1 of many other programs that use AHCMD, the x10 driver or their own drivers.
I have nothing against X10commander so please don't take my comments as such. Originaly AHCMD was only in the AHP SDK but later included with the ActiveHomePro (AHP)x10 software. It was only intended to use for simple single command sends and to help debug AHP. Pushing to many commands in a row to AHCMD can cause it to behave erratic or even lock up. If you intend to use AHCMD please besure to use the one that came with AHP 3.318 as it will be the most stable.
