    Did you setup the AutoRemote eventghost plugin on port 12345? Maybe 12345 isn't a supported port? Maybe try with 1234?

    Hi,
    Fantastic project! One question though: It's working but somehow the keystroke emulator doesn't want to type the letter G.
    I can't figure out why it is not typing the letter g. (see the video I made using join screencapture)
    Maybe you know why?

    Huh, that's a weird one :) I have no idea why that would happen! Are you able to manually type a "g" after pressing the windows key on your PC? thanks!

    That's really weird indeed....Good suggestion: checking: nope can't type the letter g at all when I push the windows button.
    Edit: Apparently it has something to do with game mode in windows: windows key +g.
    result: pressing win key and typing g didn't work;
    then I tried: win key +S and typing g works
    Tried to add a letter in de keystroke emulator and it worked.
    like this

    I'm a happy man now and have a lot more respect for the letter G.
    Thanks for your fantastic work!

    :D
    I have the same issue! For some reason if I press the windows key then I can't type the letter "g" anywhere in windows anymore until I press Win+g (maybe Win+s works too now that you mention it). Glad you found the workaround!

    Take in any input, without having to prepregram it. I want to do this in Google Assistant but instead of just taking in the program name, take in either the desktop or laptop (I.e. I say 'open "program" on my desktop, which will open said program on my desktop)

    Are you not able to add an additional parameter corresponding to the PC's name?

    I can't add a variable at all with Google Assistant's shortcuts/routines. I can add it in AutoVoice/Tasker just fine

    Then you should try saying "ask autovoice to..." before your command :)
