  1. Unfortunately, turning this setting ON has made no difference. I have just experienced the problem again. I did something different this time - I simply opened and closed an AutoIt editing window - which fixed the problem. This suggests to me a system wide problem with my OS, and almost certainly nothing to do with ME.
  2. Great sugggestion! Yes, it was off (if its default is ON, then I have no idea how it got turned off since I've not been anywhere near that page of settings since the initial installation). Time will tell whether setting this ON has solved the problem, but I suspect you've found the solution. Many thanks.
  3. No, it's definitely not that behaviour. I've tried waiting 2 minutes, to no avail. And ME is not idle for a long time - often no longer than several minutes. But I thank you for your suggestions.
  4. I have just started to observe some strange behaviour, where hotkeys often don't work until I click on the ME icon in my tray. For example, I place my Windows 7 computer in Standby by pressing Ctrl-Shift-2. I've done this for years. But sometimes nothing happens - the macro is not being activated. Once I click on the ME tray icon, all is well again. This doesn't happen all the time. Any ideas?

  7. Here's an idea I wrote about several years ago which may, or may not, be helpful <g>! It's quite complex! It is possible to write a total of 39 macros (one for each character and number, plus 3 control macros) which are fired according to which key has been pressed. Thus, pressing 3 intiates macro-3, pressing h initiates macro-h. It involves writing a total of 39 macros (most of which are almost identical)! See Detecting Keys pressed for details. But this works only in ME4.
  8. I don't understand exactly what you mean. While ME is waiting for you to right-click (in my example) in order to continue on to the next file, are you not able to do any processing or editing of the opened file? Or does ME lock it?

  10. How about this? Repeat with Folder YourFolderName (Return Files only) Wait for Right Mouse Click End Repeat This returns filenames in alphabetical order (as long as the file system is NTFS - order is random under FAT). In this instance the script waits for a right-click before continuing - you could have it wait for text, or for a window to lose focus, etc.
  11. IMHO ISS gave up on ME a long, long time ago. And the company structure doesn't appear to permit professional outcomes.
  12. I've never seen the Capture Console Output option before - is it a recent development? You're right, if this option is selected then ME does indeed wait for the program to complete.
  13. I've not had any response from either of the email addresses I have for him, so I'm not holding my breath!
  14. No, the macro continues on immediately without waiting for Robocopy to complete (as it does when running any .exe from within MEP).
