  1. Hi, tried to delete following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Insight Software Solutions\Macro Express\LRC The result was that ME reversed into trial mode, that was expired. So in other words, I could remove my ME license from the computer without un-install. regards lars
  2. Hi kevin, as already mentioned in my first post, the "Change" option doesn't work. ME returns an error :-( The reason? 2 weeks ago I started working on-site by a customer, using one of their computers. So for now i'm using ME as trial, however in few weeks that would end. I looked after some license-terms and what I could find, was in menu: Help - License information When ME trial are ended i consider that authorising ME on that computer, wouldn't violate ME license-terms, since that would be like transportation of 1 (one) ME license. I can clearly only be in one place at a time. My problem is that i'm working 3 days per week by the customer, so I can't allow an authorised ME license to be on that computer, when i'm not there. That would violate license terms + another person would use the computer, where he could see my license code. I can't offcourse allow that, that is why I wish to remove my license registration, without un-install. So I hope that you can give some hints about how to remove the license. regards Lars
  3. Hi, is it possible to remove my MEX license, without uninstalling ME 3.5e ? In menu: Help - License information, there is an option for change, however, if I try to remove my license info, ME returns an error. My hope was that ME would stop working, like after expired trial period. In registry, I found following key that maybe is the one? However I didn't dare to try to delete it: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Insight Software Solutions\Macro Express\LRC If it is possible, it would be nice to know :-)
  4. Hi I purchased ME 3.4b back in october 2003. I hope that developement of ME have priority in your business, since i'm one of your very happy ME users :-) Since more than 3 years already have gone since 3.4b release, I guess that the next version will add alot of great new stuff??? Best regards Lars
  5. Hi, I know the problem. I send an email to Insight Software long time ago about to restore the "delete file" command from 3.4b. See also thread: File Deletion Problem http://pgmacros.com/community/index.php?showtopic=1144 regards Lars
  6. Hi, I posted a similar wish to Insight Software, some month ago. In ME 3.4b the software simply ignored "Access Denied" continuing with the next file, so files that could be deleted was deleted. From ME 3.5 that was unfortunately changed, so today I let ME call a *.bat file instead for doing deletion jobs. Another thing that I miss in ME'd delete function is the capability or option to bypass recycle bin, like with "shift-delete" in explorer, which would speed up the process a lot Best regards Lars
  7. The particular CAD (Computer Aided Design) software do have an UNIX based userinterface, but the software is ported to Windows, so in that way it isn't based on an OS command prompt nor using Microsoft Foundation Classes for userinterface. Another thing, I tried to do a little test with the old dos version of Norton Commander running in an OS command prompt (W2K). To my great surprise ME could easily send keystrokes, use shortkeys + copy to clipboard, (made with mouse move selection followed by ENTER). I hope to get the job with the CAD software, however i'm still in the selling process regards Lars
  8. Hi, I have an upcomming task, with a CAD system, that originated from the UNIX platform. The particular CAD software is ported to Windows 2000. Which limitations/ possibilities will ME have for controlling such app? If at least mouse movements, LMB/RMB + textwriting, use of CAD software shortkeys & eventually clipboard functions work, i'm fine. I understand that "controls" offcourse wouldn't work :-) Do any of you have some experience there? regards Lars
  9. Hi again, I just want to bring up the release topic below. Is there done some efforts about a new version? regards Lars
  10. Hi, you could use Total Commander which is a very powerfull file-handling utility for that: http://www.ghisler.com regards Lars
  11. Hi Kevin No, UE is an ascii/ binary/ hex-editor, so a MS Word document, would propably become corrupt after such attempt :-) And sorry, I didn't notice Rachel's question reg MS Word files. regards Lars
  12. Hi, I must say that MS Word is just about the worst tool for the job, sorry for the expression :-) For that I use UltraEdit, a superb ascii-editor ( www.ultraedit.com ). In UE which have an internal macro language, I have made few hot-keys, that temporarely changes following code example: <SPMSE:00060><SPKEY:0040><MMW2:132,32><LCLK><MMW2:172,146><LCLK><MMW2:320,79><LCLK><TEXTTYPE:<HOME><DOWN ARROW><DOWN ARROW><ENTER>><MMW2:292,160><LCLK> to: <SPMSE:00060> <SPKEY:0040> <MMW2:132,32> <LCLK> <MMW2:172,146> <LCLK> <MMW2:320,79> <LCLK> <TEXTTYPE:<HOME> <DOWN ARROW> <DOWN ARROW> <ENTER>> <MMW2:292,160> <LCLK> and back again so ME takes the code directly. When the code in UE have CR/LF's this can be processed in many ways besides just replace all etc. If anyone are interested I will post the UE macro file for handling ME Direct Code, which so far have following features: CRTL-1 Makes multilines CRTL-2 Make One line CRTL-3 Convert LMBD LMBU to LMBclick CRTL-4 Remove all Delays CRTL-5 Convert Delay (sec) to Timed Delay (0 cpu) CRTL-6 Convert Delay (msec) to Timed Delay (0 cpu) best regards Lars
  13. Wauuv, that just shows what a nice tool ME is :-) It is quite some relief to see such task's to be automated. Let's see if some other will contribute with successes :-) regards Lars
  14. Hi, I thought it could be nice to hear you ME users, about which successes you had with Macro Express. For my own part I bought a license back in june 2003 and today I have more than 200 macros that help me very much in my everyday in front of my computer. It became a sport to me automating everything, that I could imagine, that was also quite som good training in programming ME. Last week I just ended a job which payed ME approx 130 times, in less than one week. A customer asked if anyone could help them in one way or another with exporting 13000 drawings from a windows-based 2D CAD system to AutoCAD's dwg format. The reseller who sold their 2D-CAD package, said that there was no possibility to automate that task, so the user had to do this export-job manually, which would take her around 12 full working weeks. I and the customer agreed about the job, that we would do for around 5300 USD and they uploaded these 13000 CAD drawings to our ftp-server. Within 15 minutes I have made the first version of my macro for the job, and started it. During the same evening my macro stopped many times because the CAD program had different dialogs for missing references, corrupt drawings etc, so I had to refine my macro for answering these dialogs also. The CAD software even crashed with Dr Watson, so my macro had to delete temp-files as well as dmp-files (with a bat-file) and then restart the CAD software, which was needed 990 times during the entire job. I programmed ME to log events into an ascii-file. It was very nice to see how easy ME handled that job, which would be devastating if done manually, just imagine if you had to wait 5-10 sec just for opening a drawing + other 5-10 sec for exporting the same drawing, then do it 13000 times (I would look for another job :-) Instead of 12 weeks the customer had their converted drawings within 6 days. I guess that many of you have similar experiences with ME ?? Regards Lars
  15. Hi, for such text-editing job, you need a good editor. I use UltraEdit for such jobs, where the tast you ask for can be done in seconds, whether you need csv or tsv (tab separated files) http://www.ultraedit.com/ And if you have many of these files ME controlling UltraEdit can be helpfull. regards Lars
