I am sure I am not the only one that asked this question.

we have a daily conf call that tanks place in a foreign country. too early to attend so I decided to use skype and record it automatically. I use Task Scheduler

"c:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"/callto:+XXXXXXXXXX,,,125

The dialer is supposed to dial the XX number and wait a few seconds (the ",") then dial the 125 access code.

Unfortunatly Skype doesnt accept the "," pause

Any solution ?

Oft requested, never implemented AFAIK. If you use a Mac, maybe this will help. – Karan Dec 13 '12 at 17:01

Inserting a 'P' should pause the dialing for 2 seconds. This works in most dialing programs.

I think the 'P' would be in place of the commas.
