having problem sending sms via microsoft smssender

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
hi, We are using a database program that has a bolt on to send sms messages via microsoft smssender. which then send via a mobile phone connected into the USB point on the server.

smssender sends fine via the graphics interface, but not via the dos prompt. This is a problem because the database program uses the dos prompt to send the sms.

What happens is that in command i type :-

smssender /p:mobile no. /m:"test" /i

p = mobile no.
m = message
i = log sent

I then get the message :-

there is no device previously used by smssender. use the graphical mode by running smssender.exe to select a device.

Reading the help section on ms website. it mentioned that when you go into the smssender it should default to the last modem used. This doesn't happen. I have spoken to the software firm and they think that it should place an entry in the registry in reference to the last modem.

I have been through the reg and cannot find any lines to do with this.

any advice grateful
