I found the command line options for PSR.exe @ http://ctrlf5.net/?p=176 (see below)
I haven't been able to get the /stopevent <eventname> option to work
What I would like to know is how to use this option.
psr.exe /start /output fullfilepath.zip /sc1 /stopevent <eventname>
Can anyone provide me with a working example using this?
psr.exe [/start |/stop][/output <fullfilepath>] [/sc (0|1)] [/maxsc <value>]
[/sketch (0|1)] [/slides (0|1)] [/gui (o|1)]
[/arcetl (0|1)] [/arcxml (0|1)] [/arcmht (0|1)]
[/stopevent <eventname>] [/maxlogsize <value>] [/recordpid <pid>]
/start :Start Recording. (Outputpath flag SHOULD be specified)
/stop :Stop Recording.
/sc :Capture screenshots for recorded steps.
/maxsc :Maximum number of recent screen captures.
/maxlogsize :Maximum log file size (in MB) before wrapping occurs.
/gui :Display control GUI.
/arcetl :Include raw ETW file in archive output.
/arcxml :Include MHT file in archive output.
/recordpid :Record all actions associated with given PID.
/sketch :Sketch UI if no screenshot was saved.
/slides :Create slide show HTML pages.
/output :Store output of record session in given path.
/stopevent :Event to signal after output files are generated.
PSR Usage Examples:
psr.exe /start /output fullfilepath.zip /sc1 /gui 0 /record <PID>
/stopevent <eventname> /arcetl 1
psr.exe /start /output fullfilepath.xml /gui 0 /recordpid <PID>
psr.exe /start /output fullfilepath.xml /gui 0 /sc 1 /maxsc <number>
/maxlogsize <value> /stopevent <eventname>
1. Output path should include a directory path (e.g. '.\file.xml').
2. Output file can either be a ZIP file or XML file
3. Can't specify /arcxml /arcetl /arcmht /sc etc. if output is not a ZIP
We have tested the cmd option, if we use /stopevent, we must add a eventname after the option, or the whole cmd will be invalid, please note that the "eventname" can be any names as you want. we will inform you if we have any further new information about this option.

I misunderstood the purpose of the switch /stopevent. As mentioned I interepreted as meainf log an event in the event log.
But I am still unsure of the purpose of this switch though.
I tested this and it still recorded the psr session in test.zip
psr.exe /start /output D:\test.zip /sc 1 /gui 0
Can you explain when I should use this switch and for what purpose?
Thanks again , Brian
It would be nice have the possibility to screenshot only the monitor that was clicked OR to pass a parameter to select with monitor I would like the screen shot.
Also, would be nicve have the option to record the image in pgn instead of jpg because png keep image quality.
