Creating a new project from the command line

Hi all!

Is it possible to create a project from the DOS command line in Trados Studio 2009? I know it's possible to start the New Project Wizard from the command line (which includes the name of the project, the project template to be used and the files to be included in the project). What I don't understand is why, if all of this is set up, I still have to click through all the windows until I get to Finish. I was wondering if this entire process could be automated somehow so that after running a batch file, I have a project completely ready to be opened in Studio.

Can anyone help?

Two things to consider... Feb 15, 2012

The first is to make use of Project Templates. This way you only need a few clicks each time to add your files and the rest are already in place based on the template you use. You can have as many different templates as you like.

The second is using the OpenExchange. This is perfectly possible with the OpenExchange so if you are a developer you could join the Developer Programme and create something for yourself, or to share/sell with others.
