  1. ME3 won't play back in VPS

    Belated thanks, Samrae. I am still working on getting a fix for this issue, but while I'm doing that I have decided to give the VMware Workstation Player a shot. Why not? It at least will achieve half of what I'm aiming for.
  2. I want to set this up and use it in a virtual private server so that I can run macros even when my PC is shut down, but macros captured in a VPS do not function when run. I tried both mouse-click capture and keystroke capture. When played back, the cursor just moves around a little on the Macro Express window. I've installed Macro Express, a browser, and a Notepad page with URLs to be copied in a VPS running Windows Server 2008. If someone can suggest a solution for this issue, I will be getting somewhere. Thanks in advance. NOTE: I am still using the mouse and keyboard installed on my PC. I am not clear on whether some adjustment is needed there.
  3. Thanks Samrae, but I'm getting nowhere with this. I'll try posting the issue in a new thread to see what turns up.
  4. Along the lines of what Samrae helpfully suggested, I opted for a virtual private server, with the main difference apparently being that I can then run apps with an Internet connection even when my PC is shut down. I've installed Macro Express, a browser, and a Notepad page with URLs to be copied in a VPS running Windows Server 8. The issue now is that Macros captured there do not function when run. I tried both mouse-click capture and keystroke capture. When played back, the cursor just moves around a little on the Macro Express window. If someone can now suggest a solution for this issue, I will be getting somewhere. Thanks in advance. NOTE: I am still using the mouse and keyboard installed on my PC. I am not clear on whether some adjustment is needed there.
  5. Thank you for the info and the suggestions. I am intrigued by the virtual machine idea, and I'll likely take a look at that. Meanwhile, I do have a macro that functions. Just not an ideal setup, and it will need more work to get there.
  6. "...in a different window"? I'm not sure what you mean. I would run the macro only in the windows specified when it was created. I'm certain it would not run correctly in other windows. Anyway, I have created what I want, and it ran okay when tested. My question is about the problem of not being able to do any work or browse in other windows/programs when the macro is running. Are you saying that by using only keystrokes to navigate for the capture -- instead of the mouse -- I would then be able to work concurrently in other windows when the created macro is working? I did want to do that with the one I just created, but my keyboard is a malfunctioning mess now and too unreliable. I am awaiting delivery of a replacement. Thanks for your response, btw. If you do know of a solution that will allow me to keep typing/browsing elsewhere while a macro is running, that will be helpful and much appreciated.
  7. Hi all, Just got Macro Express on trial and am trying out a captured mouse routine for a browser. There's select, copy, paste and go, click, and wait in there -- then repeat. The plan was to run this on a loop. But it seems that's going to make my mouse occupied full time while the macro is running. I won't be saving any time that way unless I buy another PC. Is there a way around this? Cheers for any help anyone can offer.
