1. A non-transitory computer readable storage medium storing a set of program instructions installed on and executed by an information-processing device having a wireless communication interface, a wired communication interface, a user interface, a display, a controller, and a memory, the memory storing an OS configured to execute: a pairing process to establish a relationship between the OS and an external device for wireless communications via the wireless communication interface; obtaining a piece of wireless identification information from the external device via wireless communication using the wireless communication interface; generating a wireless queue used for wireless communication; and a registration process to register correlation information that correlates the generated queue with the obtained piece of wireless identification information, the piece of wireless identification information identifying the external device and being used for wireless communication with the external device, the set of program instructions comprising:
executing a storage process to store a command program in the memory;
executing an acquisition process for transmitting a request for the piece of wireless identification information to the external device, which is connected to the wired communication interface, via wired communications using the wired communication interface, and for acquiring the piece of wireless identification information from the external device via wired communications using the wired communication interface as a response to the request;
specifying the wireless queue by using the acquired piece of wireless identification information and the correlation information which is registered in the registration process by the OS; and
executing a setup process, the setup process to enable the command program to output via the wireless communication interface commands to the external device identified by the acquired piece of wireless identification information by using the wireless queue.
