Default Record on start up

Forgive me if this post is in the wrong place.

I have been using a licensed version Reaper as a recording tool since version 3

I now have the need to regularly get something recorded when I am absent. I can make a windows scheduled task open Reaper, but I can't find any way of arming tracks and starting record as soon as the program opens.
Can any one offer any thoughts on this matter?

Thanks

If you have the SWS extension installed, you can define a global (or project) start up action, which can be a custom action, if you wish.

So, create a custom action to arm the tracks you want to and start recording then make that a SWS startup action

Just tried that and it worked fine. Here's what I did...

* opened project designed for auto-recording

* create custom action: Launch and record
- Tracks: arm all tracks for recording
- Transport: Record

* Rt-click custom action and copy selected action command ID

* Extensions , Startup actions, Set project startup action and paste ID

* Save project

Now, when that project is loaded (which you can do in a Reaper command line batch file) it will automatically arm all tracks and start recording
