  1. This thread and the "Install error" thread seem to be the same topic; so please see reply there http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/topic/7795-pgmacros-install-error/ that is also relevant to this thread.

    PGMacros install error...

    Despite my April 29 post, there was still problems with the installation. Today I re-read your original reply and saw the thing about installing MaxExp3, then PGM, then using PGM in MaxExpPro. I tried doing that and it might have worked... I'm still experimenting, but I wanted to document my efforts so far. PGMacro Library seemed to install correctly, but after installation, when it was supposed to start, I got this error: I tried redoing everything using the "Administrator Mode" option, but that didn't help. The next thing I tried, was installing PGM to a non-default location. That didn't help either. In retrospect, it occurs to me that uninstalling MEpro first probably would've helped. I ended up just canceling the error, then opening ME3. The PGM Lib was not opened. I browsed to the non-default location and opened the PgmFl.mex file. I tried the Sample String Reverse macro and it worked fine. After that, I exited ME3, then launched MEpro. I made a new Category in my main mex file, and called it "PGM imports." I imported the Library. (I can't remember if I imported PgmFl or PgmFL_Pro, but I just looked in the notes section and it has "2003.09.01 - Original Release Version 3.4.01," so it was probably the non-pro one.) Aaaanywaaaay.... I'm able to call the String -- Reverse macro (that is imported into the same file) (see code) <VARIABLE SET STRING Option="\x01" Destination="%T10%" Mask="FALSE" OnTop="FALSE" Left="Center" Top="Center" Monitor="0"/> <MACRO RUN Use_ID="FALSE" Name="{ String - Reverse }" ID="-1" Wait="TRUE"/> <TEXT BOX DISPLAY Title="Result of String Reverse" Content="{\\rtf1\\ansi\\ansicpg1252\\deff0{\\fonttbl{\\f0\\fnil Tahoma;}{\\f1\\fnil\\fcharset0 Tahoma;}}\r\n\\viewkind4\\uc1\\pard\\lang1033\\f0\\fs16 ReverseString: %T\\f1 10\\f0 %\r\n\\par \r\n\\par Result\\f1 T[1]\\f0 : %T[1]%\r\n\\par \r\n\\par Result\\f1 T1\\f0 : %T1%\r\n\\par \r\n\\par \r\n\\par }\r\n" Left="Center" Top="Center" Width="800" Height="400" Monitor="0" OnTop="FALSE" Keep_Focus="TRUE" Mode="\x00" Delay="0"/> Unfortunately the reversed string is not getting back into my variables. But I'm also not getting the previously mentioned chash at Setup Line 81. So I guess that's a move in the right direction. Also, I'm seeing the expected folders in my registry now (imp) So that's good--right? I'll post on this thread if I get this thing working better. *Side note: I "stepped through" my sample macro as it called all the other PCM macros... Holy moly there's a lot of steps involved!!!

    Forum Question: Merge profiles?

    Here we go... This is a much better avatar.
  4. This screen shot indicates that I am indeed some sort of administrator.. Also, I'm able to manipulate this dialog, though oddly, swkunkel doesn't show up in the list....
  5. *forgot to point out... in the above picture, I'm "swkunkel."
  6. I don't know if I'm "The" administrator or not.... I do know that if I browse to the Users folder, I see this: There are certain settings that I can't change (like the 'ignore' list for our antivirus) because they are controlled centrally by the company (school district) I work for.

    Thanks Kevin!

    Forum Question: Merge profiles?

    Alrighty then... I was not able to get a password recovery for *this* account, because I was using username=steveK. Apparently my username is "kunkel321." Not sure how I set up my profile to display a name other than my username.... Oh well. I did a password recovery by leaving the username blank and sending to all my different email addresses.... Sure enough, my two profiles were assigned to different email addresses. I'll stick with the steveK "kunkel321" account, since it has more posts attached to it. Oddly though, "steve kunkel' is an older account. steve kunkel created 10 aug 2006. steveK created 16 Feb 2008. But steve kunkel has only three posts and they all were this year... Beats me. Anyway, I tried to delete the steve kunkel account, but apparently I cannot. I've attached it to my hotmail account, which I never use, so hopefully I won't reactivate the wrong account again when I come back in six months and forget all about my current dilemma. Also, I have to get rid of my avatar... I hate to change it after so many years, but it just reminds me of Facebook people who are Tea Party nutters, and the insane stuff they post.

    Okay, here I am as me.

    Forum Question: Merge profiles?

    May have solved... Hold on.
  11. Here's an odd situation.... I just noticed that, somehow, I've gotten duplicate profiles... I'm me, steve kunkel, but this is also me! Not sure how I did that... It appears that "steve kunkel" has barely been used, though it was created nearly 10 years ago. Is it possible to merge the profiles? I'd like to have access to my old posts if possible. I hadn't been on the forum for a while, and just recently had to email my login info to my self. "steve kunkel" is the info that was sent, even though I've used steveK all these years. I am currently not able to log in to steveK. The password request tells me that the account doesn't exist.... Thoughts?

    Use reg change as a trigger?

    Wow cool. Thanks Cory. I'd hate for you to burn your time on this.... If you do though, maybe go with the VBScript option, that way people could change what reg key it looks for and thus the script could be used by other people as well(??) Here's another question though: If I'm having a VBScript running in the background anyway, should I just go ahead with the once-per-minute looping marco you suggested?

    Use reg change as a trigger?

    Thanks for the reply Cory. I'm hesitant to use a periodic loop to look for things, simply because I already have so many goodies running in the background on my computer. Don't want to strain the system. I'm curious if your above-mentioned one caused any noticeable performance lag? I guess the activation of the macro, per se, would be smooth, but depending on what the different things that macro looked for, there could be a lag (?) Anyway, for now, I've made a trigger that simply looks for when xyplorer.exe is closed. That's usually what I browse pictures with. I get lots of superfluous triggering though, because I use xyplorer for other stuff too. I might see about setting up a trigger that looks for certain keywords in window titles. (Pictures, Images, Wallpapers) It looks like that might require three separate macros though (each one calling my BGInfo macro). I'll post back if I ever get a good working solution.
  14. Hi All, Does anyone know if it's possible to use "wallpaper has been changed" as a trigger for a macro? Googling has lead me to the REG_SZ key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/Wallpaper." Also, I see the following trigger option: Any thoughts on what to try next? I use the excellent BGInfo https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb897557.aspx and would like it to be updated whenever right-click an image and use "Set as desktop wallpaper." (Note: I'm not 100% sure that watching for changes in this key will work.)
  15. Hi Kevin, Thanks for following up on this. I haven't had a chance to tinker with it to the extent I did before, but I'm not sure it's working any better... I fully exited, then ran as administrator. I took a couple screenshots while installing: As before, the Example Scripts in the PGMFL_Pro.mex file do run, but I can't call any of them from my own maceex.mex macros. I'll experiment more and see if there are any differences then there were in May. Also, I'm not sure if this matters, but I am already an administrator for my computer (though it is a work computer).
