Is there anyway to have skype run a batch file or application when an incomming call is answered?  The idea is I have skype on a pc and skype on my phone, the pc answer's calls automatically.  I need to be able to run a command on the pc from my phone when im out and about.  Any other software that could achieve this?  The phone is a samsung galaxy

What are you trying to achieve?

Something that requires Skype, or are you wanting to remotely trigger something on your PC that is nothing to do with Skype.

its actually a pc controlling a playlist for low power fm station,  I can talk though skype onto the radio through the pc from my phone, and the script I need to run reduces/mutes the volume of current song playing.
