  1. I know they haven't given up but it has slowed. And I worry about their ability to cope with UWP. But more than that it seems public interest in MEP has faded for some reason. I'm not sure why.
  2. My pleasure
  3. You might also try other utilities to mirror. Check Rsync. Also RichCopy.
  4. Please post a sample of the CSV.
  5. I developed a work around for the Robocopy problem. As I suggested early on one can use a batch file. I created "RC.bat" and ran it from Program Launch with the option to capture the console output. It works perfectly and MEP waits for it to complete like all console programs will if one chooses the option to capture output. The contents of the batch file can't be more simple. See below. robocopy a:\a d:\d Also you should know that one can pass parameters to a batch file. This way you can create a generic batch file and vary the path or options. Or create a batch file as a string variable in MEP and run it. As I stated before there is no reason to create loops to detect a program's completion. Use MEP to control the flow.
  6. MEP does wait. I did a test macro like this with a huge file so as to take a significant amount of time. MEP waits for Robocopy before displaying the results. Unfortunately there's a bug here because when launched this way Robocopy never terminates. I've had it running several minutes now in the MEP debugger and Robocopy still appears in my task list despite being done. If I terminate Robocopy MEP displays the results dialog. Program Launch: "robocopy.exe" (Normal) Parameters: a:\a d:\d Text Box Display: Result This should work. I've had command line programs in the past for doing things like downloading web pages and they worked and MEP waited for them to complete before moving ahead. I'll report this as a bug to ISS.
  7. Really? So if one runs Program Launch and use the Capture Console Output option MEP doesn't wait for the program to finish? I have a hard time believing that. How is it going to return a value if it doesn't wait. Are you sure about this or should I do a test. Maybe a little wager to see if I can get RoboCopy to wait? I will say that most of the time I use "External Script" so I'm not as familiar with the timing on Program Launch.
  8. I've proposed a few add-ons for MEP but there's no interest and I'm not going to put time into something if it's only going to benefit a couple people. Unless someone wants to pay me for it. I've proposed a WinForm (multiple boxes and other windows controls) input for MEP, a RegEx module, a web downloader,and a few others. Last week I created a specialize web browser as a demo using the WebBrowser control for a client and was thinking I could make a web browser that would be designed to work with MEP as well. Solve all the problems I hear about here automating web pages. But there's just no interesting in these things. Joe made the PGMs a long time ago but there was a lot of demand then. And I haven't received any interest from ISS either. I have suggested that could make some add-ons but really if they wanted something like that they could simply develop the solution in MEP. I think it could be cool to have them just like we have add-ons for all kinds of programs, EG Chrome. But it sure would be fun to do...
  9. The "final solution" for compatibility on a Win10 machine is Hyper-V. It's MS's VM (Virtual Machine). click the start button and start typing "hyper" and you will see it. You need a license for the machine you virtually build but most of us have an Win7 license available from a previous computer. I used it with MEP a few times for compatibility and often simply because I was running a macro that was using the mouse and keyboard for a long time and I wanted to keep working on other things. It's a free solution if you ever need it.
  10. You're right rberg. I didn't notice he was looking at the same variable. Line 4 simply needs to be removed.
  11. I'm sure you have considered this but is there a command to go to a certain time like in media players? In VLC I can type CTRL+T, enter a time, and it jumps to it. I like what rberg is suggesting. Then you would avoid the drag. I made a simple test program in VB.NET to see how difficult it would be to scan pixel colors and it's simple. I was thinking I could make a simple add-on program for MEP that would scan pixels quickly. Though I'm not sure what the best way would be to go about it. I was thinking that the user could set thresholds for reg green and blue and it would scan along a path until the threshold is reached and return that position. I'd have to figure out how people would want to use it first.
  12. It's not the repeat. You are missing and "End If" that should be paired with Line 4.
  13. I still don't understand why one would not create a Robocopy command in MEP. The macro will continue when its complete.
  14. OK, I din't read all the posts since mine but I don't have much time tonight. I only want to impart that I believe the WDM (Windows Desktop Manager) is having some kind of conflict with MEP. And I don't think it's MEP's fault.
  15. Did you search the forum? I seem to remember a post that sounded identical to this a couple months ago. Maybe more.
