    Gone............................
    ....... no, they are there behind the scenes building updates that break everything.
    I suggest someone sets up a repository for older apps and servers so that visitors to this forum can at least keep their remotes running when they have been broken by updates.
    I can contribute quite a few, going back a few years, for Windows, Android and the RPI.

    I imagine that "ontap" in the app waits for another tap when held down..... maybe with a timed interrupt.
    Can you give the button an "ontap" function and an "onhold" function as well?
    If you can you could try to make a loop.... keystroke-delay-returntokeystroke..... function for "onhold". Maybe you would not need the delay as the os would take care of the repeat interval.

    Yes, and I do apologise.
    I am going to have to stop trying to help.
    It seems UR have deprecated the task library.
    I stopped updating either the app or the server a couple of years ago as UR kept breaking my remotes.
    The main reason was that they switched IR format from "pronto" format for network IR devices to local app format for specific device blasters.
    It seems they also deprecated other sever libraries..... and of course I never noticed.
    I really do not understand why they would do that..... but it is within their power.....!

    You need to look at (in order) "concepts" "controls" and "libs".
    If you have an XML editor it can be easier (it will highlight any mistakes you make).

    Look inside the remotes included with the Unified Remote server to see some examples.
    Not so easy maybe, but worth the effort.

    Come back to the forum with any questions...... someone will always help..!
    Or even build it for you if you give some more details?

    Late night reply without thinking.
    You will need to define task (for the server)...... so

    local task = libs.task;
    

    and in my remote I close a full-screen window first, which might give the program window "focus"...

    [email protected] Close Powerpoint
    actions.close_powerpoint = function()
        keyboard.stroke("esc");
        task.switchtowait ("powerpnt.exe");
        task.close("powerpnt.exe");
    end
    

    ......but I would expect "switchtowait" to get focus anyway.
    Here is the whole remote just in case. Yes, it works flawlessly......

    Something like (for windows in this case)........

    [email protected] Close Powerpoint
    actions.close_powerpoint = function()
        task.switchtowait ("powerpnt.exe");
        task.close("powerpnt.exe");
    end

    Hello.......
    I get the impression that UR has dropped the "standalone" IR transceivers as smartphones and tablets have "blasters" and users want to use them.
    The App now captures IR in a different format to that used a few years ago...... specifically for the device on which it is running.

    I use a "Keene IR anywhere" which was one of the first IR devices that UR catered for along with the "Global Cache"
    I can no longer capture in the correct format with the recent versions of the app.

    I have had to keep Version 3.0.23 on all of my phone devices, capture codes with the phone device (receiving the codes over Ethernet from the "Keene"), email them to myself, and add them to my remotes. They are captured in Pronto format with V3.0.23.

    I have kept quite a few versions of the app and of the server. There used to be a repository of every release and nightly builds here....... http://static.unifiedintents.com/unifiedremote/builds/
    but it is gone....... probably still exists somewhere, but maybe now "private".
    It was very useful in the case of serious bugs in a release.
    I still run quite old versions (app 3.0.23)...... as I have no reason to update if they are working.

    Backups of apps can be as important as backups of data........!
