TwoToneDetect is a Windows application that interfaces with a radio receiver or scanner. The application can be run as a Windows Service using FireDaemon Pro, which allows you to have the application start automatically at boot prior to login, start multiple instances of the application and more. This HOWTO will show you how to set it up. You can also use Fusion to manage FireDaemon and other Windows services via a web browser.

TwoToneDetect Setup Under FireDaemon Pro

Download the TwoToneDetect .zip file from the official website.

Extract the .zip file to the directory of your choice. For the purposes of this HOWTO, we will use C:\TwoToneDetect68. Note that the number in your directory name may vary.

Follow the instructions on the TwoToneDetect website to set up TwoToneDetect.

Download and install FireDaemon Pro into the directory of your choice, typically C:\Program Files\FireDaemon.

Next start the FireDaemon GUI from the desktop shortcut. Click on the "Create a new service definition" button in the toolbar (or type Ctrl+N) and enter the information into the fields as you see below. Adjust the paths to suit your installation.

  • Executable: The path to your TwoToneDetect68.exe file. The default path is C:\TwoToneDetect68\TwoToneDetect68.exe.
  • Working Directory: The directory containing the TwoToneDetect68.exe file. The default path is C:\TwoToneDetect68.
  • Parameters: None. Leave this field blank.

Now click on the Settings tab. If you DON'T want to see TwoToneDetect running, uncheck the Interact with Desktop check box & select "Hidden" from the "Show Window" dropdown. You may optionally run TwoToneDetect as the user you installed it as. In the Logon Account field type your username (e.g. Administrator) and then enter the user's password twice in the Password and Confirm fields. You can change the Process Priority to allocate more CPU time to TwoToneDetect or specify which CPU or core TwoToneDetect will run on (in the case of multi-processor, hyperthreaded or multi-core CPUs).

Now click OK to finish setup and start TwoToneDetect!
