    I'm thinking about trying to automate some testing on my new machine (X1 gen6) and was wondering if there are any command-line arguments to ThrottleStop that would allow me to change various parameters directly from the CLI?

    If not, I can probably write a script that directly edits the throttlestop.ini file and kills/reloads the application, but direct variables in the CLI would likely be cleaner.

    Anyone else tried anything like this? Any suggestions or gotchas I should be aware of before I go poking around? I searched through the obvious places, but I'll admit to not having read through all 900+ pages of the main throttlestop thread! ;-)

    ThrottleStop does not use any command line arguments and no plans to add this in the future.

    Make sure you turn off and do not use the ThrottleStop system tray icons if you plan to kill the ThrottleStop.exe task.

    Bit late, but perhaps you could use this to get started:
    ThrottleStop .ini modifier startup scripts

    One odd thing I did run into was the combination '=0'. Any other '=*' is fine, but DOS treats this as a special null case (though undocumented). Trick was to use an escape for both the '=' and the parameter's value, that way it works for both '0' and any other value.
