  1. When the network is disabled the Ping Site command still uses Windows APIs to see if you are connected and to try to resolve the Host Name to an IP Address. This may not happen "quickly".
  2. The ping command ignores protocols such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, or SMTP. It only uses an IP Address or Host Name. Enter an IP address such as 209.197.94.249 or a host name like www.macros.com. The only valid entry in this field is an IP Address or a Host Name. This cannot include the protocol identifier http://, https://, ftp://, or smpt:// . Nor can it include specific pages like .htm, .html, or .apx. There is a problem in the Help. The example value of https://www.macros.com/abc%23%/support.htm is not valid. This example should be something like "www.macros%23%.com". We
  3. No. The Ping Site / If Ping commands call some Windows APIs. Those are taking the time. Not directly. But ... You might try the If Online / If Not Online commands to see if they work faster.
  4. @Cory: Ping uses ICMP. It is part of the TCP/IP protocol standard. When the Ping or If Ping macro commands run, the first thing that happens is Macro Express checks to see if there is a connection and, if there is a connection it checks to see if the IP address or URL is valid. The Timeout value specified in the Ping and If Ping commands has no effect on these tests. Once it is determined that there is a connection and the IP address or URL is valid then the Ping actually happens at that point, the Timeout value is used. The amount of time it takes
  5. Macro Express v 5.2.0.1 - Macro Express Pro v 6.2.0.1 Macro Express 5 and Macro Express Pro 6 have been updated with many improvements, UI adjustments and bug fixes. There is one important change of particular note. Recently Windows Defender SmartScreen began blocking unwise.exe, the program used to uninstall Macro Express, due to security vulnerabilities. Blocking occurred when using Microsoft Edge and Windows 10 whether or not Windows Defender or another Internet Security program was being used. You likely experienced this issue if you attempted to uninstall Macro Exp
  6. If the program you are running is running with elevated privileges the Macro Express and the Mouse Locator must also be running with elevated privileges (As Administrator). An enhanced version of the Mouse Locator will be available with the next version of Macro Express that eliminates this requirement. We do not recommend using the Mouse Locator programs containing a version numbers such as MSLocate_v6.1.3.1.exe and MSLocate_v6.1.1.1.exe. These files will be removed when newer versions of Macro Express are installed.
  7. There is known issue with the Terminate Process command when running on Windows 10. This issue has been fixed and will be included in the next release of Macro Express 5 and Macro Express Pro 6. If you would like a test version of Macro Express containing the fix let us know via our Report a Bug page.
  8. Please visit our Report a Bug page. Or, from the Macro Express Explorer window, click Help, Support, Report a Bug.
  9. It might help to update to the latest version of Macro Express Pro 4. Download it here: Previous Versions The revision history does not mention a change for deleting files but there are several other important fixes. Release Notes: Macro Express Pro v 4.9.0.1 Your Macro Express Pro 4 license allows you to update to Macro Express Pro v 4.9.0.1 without cost.
  10. If you launch a program via the Program Launch command there is an option to save the console information to a variable.
  11. Regarding the current released version of Microsoft Edge: Due to updated security features in the Microsoft Edge browser macro activations no longer work in Edge. We worked with Microsoft over a number of months to find a solution but they will not be making a change to restore functionality in Edge. They issued the following statement: "... the app design is not supported for use with Edge, and there are no known APIs that can be leveraged to perform the same workflow. Unfortunately, there is nothing much we could do from our side from here onwards." It is
  12. All new versions of Macro Express and Macro Express Pro This major release contains dozens of enhancements, bug fixes and security patches. One of the major changes for this release is to support ultra high DPI / 4K monitors that are now on many new computers. This necessitated many changes throughout the program. These features are new to former Macro Express 3 users: Insert rich text into other applications. Assign names to variables to more readily identify them. No limit to the number of variables per macro. Edit more than one macro at a time. Updat

This Macro Express 3.x forum will remain for a time to discuss Macro Express 3 issues.
