By the way guys... Thanks for the help. I set my client up and found that if you hit a key that doesn't do anything everytime you use the alt-tab during recording, you can go back and change the key press to the alt-tab. We pressed alt-F12 everytime we pressed alt-tab and of course the alt-tab's did not register when recording so in the direct editor we did a find and replace on all the alt-F12's to change them to alt-tab. It seemed to work perfectly. So even though it is not a direct fix, it did turn out to be a pretty easy work around.
I have been using ME for quite a few years through several versions on different platforms and it is a great tool. At work they call me the macro king yet I only do simple things with it.
