Hi there, 
I am hoping to run an experiment where my participants go from a stroop to visual probe to go/no-go tasks. I was hoping to set it up so immediately after completing one task, the following task starts up. Does anyone know how I can do this? 
Thank you in advance for your assistance!

The easiest way is to create a <batch> script that runs the three tasks in sequence, i.e.

<batch>
/ file = "stroop.iqx"
/ file = "dotprobe.iqx"
/ file = "gonogo.iqx"
</batch>

See https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v5/html/howto/multiplescripts.htm and https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v5/html/articles/batchscripts.htm

Hi Dave, 
Yes, I tried that and for some reason it only went through the first file and not the rest. 
I'm wondering if there is another way? 
Thank you for your help!

Then there is likely something wrong with your batch script or one of the other scripts after the first. What that is I cannot tell you, probably a syntax mistake or some missing files / files not being located where they're supposed to be.

As for other options: As mentioned in the linked documentation topics, you can also try and merge all your scripts into a single one (that's a lot of work, though). If you're NOT planning to run this online, but are collecting data locally using Inquisit Lab, you can also use a command line script to execute the three tasks in sequence. That, too, is detailed in the linked documentation topics: https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v5/html/howto/multiplescripts.htm

Hi again, 
thank you - I will see where the problem is, and if not- I'll try the other option. 
Thanks again,
