I have a TAPI-compliant phone system and have installed and configured the TAPI dialer on my computer. I am able to initiate a phone call either using Outlook (when skype is not running) or from Windows Dialer.

I'm looking to have a CRM application automatically dial contacts. The app can pull the phone #'s from the database, so it essentially needs to either call dialer.exe in a hidden mode and initiate the call to the number, or a similar program.

does anyone know a program that supports command line switches so it can essentially initiate the call and then dissapear?

Hi tabush,

This might come handy:

Please note that you have to implement it. It is not an application.

Regards,
Chinmay.

Chinmay - you may be onto something... the command i need to issue is simply
c:\dial.exe 7325551212  
(the number will change but i can build a custom URL builder to format the URL properly)

do you know how that would be done with this url handler?

Sure. If you go through the article, it suggests that you enter the path of the executable and then ad %1 at the end of the string. After that you will invoke it by protocolname:\\number.
