Trigger one-time event at system startup

I am looking for a way to have an action (e.g. send a string over RS232) occur once, preferably after the player has booted. Alternatively this could happen at the start of the presenation, but it cannot be tied to the initial state (the presenation needs to be able to jump back to the initial state without the action occuring). Therefore, simply adding a command to the initial state is unfortunately not an option.

Is there an easy solution to this?

Thanks,

Wolfgang

    You could add a zone containing only Event Handler, effectively making the zone invisible.

    Send RS232 message from as an entry command.

    Ha, that's so obvious it hurts. I guess I couldn't see the forest for the trees...

    Thank you so much!
