Caveat: I haven't supplied a bug report for this yet as I have some more testing to do before confirming that this is being caused by MEP. Having received a shiny new Windows 8.1 PC, I transferred my copy of Macro Express Pro over to it. After a little while I began to notice that the PC was hanging and unresponsive after opening File Explorer (formerly windows explorer NOT internet explorer). I first noticed this while doing some music file editing using Windows Media Player 12. I would right click a track and select 'open file location' and after 2 or 3 times, I would be presented with a completely blank File Explorer with no left or right panes or ribbon along the top. Worse still, I was unable to access any other running program or taskbar items. The only course of action was to Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot PC. After a few frustrating times, I decided to try selective start ups to isolate the program causing the problem. Unfortunately, it looks like it is MEP. When the issue happens now, opening Task Manager and forcing MEP to close returns the PC to its working state. Has anyone else encountered this issue before I send in a bug report? PS. I have uninstalled MEP for now to do more repeat testing, but so far, all is working correctly. Subject Header is missing 'unresponsive'. Sorry!
