I have it. Is there someplace Avlis-y I can upload it to?

Cheers,

This seems to be a live link to download from:

https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=149e7476 ... 94B3D5!189

Did anyone get to tinker with it further?

Do people still find this useful, and does it work with newer versions of Windows? I can fix the wiki linkage if it is still good to have, but don't want to remove it unless it isn't worth keeping there (or keep telling people to grab it on the wiki if it isn't a good thing now). There are probably some other options around as well, like Neverlauncher, but I know this was a favorite here for a long time.

I used to use it, I was not able to make it work on 64 bit windows, but that could be me

I wasn't able to make it work for me, but I'm no tech person.

I liked that you could have ASK run a program before or after NWN which made using log programs easy. I just tried installing it on 64 bit windows but it seems to need a really old version of .net that I could not seem to find a download for. I don't think it has worked for me since windows 8, so it might still work on an older system than that.

The same option to run other programs is available with other loaders that are more compatible with newer operating systems (Neverlauncher I mentioned, but there are others).

Should ASK be kept on the suggestion list for extra needed files here, or maybe just as a "see also" thing? In my opinion, if it causes more problems than it solves, it really shouldn't be on the list of recommended stuff we tell new players to use. This is one of the first things new players experience here, before they even play on Avlis in many cases.

ASK doesn't sound like it's working. I think it should be removed.

Why don't you just recompile ASK against current Windows 8/10 SDK's? Then it will work again. Unless those other tools make it redundant and not worth the effort.
