Download TweakME3 from the More Macro Express Downloads page and run it. TweakME3 allows you to disable the Macro Aborted message for the Macro Stop command, for the Abort Macro HotKey and/or for the Right-Click Abort Macro mouse click.

 

More information about the features that can be adjusted via TweakME3 can be found on the Advanced Options web page.

Is there also a way to play a specified sound when the macro is aborted?

When a macro is aborted the 'Windows Asterisk' sound as defined in Windows is played. To change this, open the Control Panel (in Windows), choose 'Sounds and Audio Devices' and change the sound assigned to Asterisk.

Whenever the Abort message is displayed it sends a message to Windows to play the System Asterisk sound. So if you change that sound in the control panel it will change what is played. There is no other way to play a specific sound.

Kevin,

 

I think what he is asking is if there is a way to play the sound on abort while the abort message is disabled (with Tweakme).

Yeah, is there a way?

I think it has been made very clear. No message, no sound.

 

Normally, if you are running a macro you can play a sound. But if you are stopping a macro, no sound will play.

 

But ... here is possible solution.

 

Create a scheduled macro that runs every second or so. Add a command to the macro to play a wav file. Follow the Sound Wave command with a Macro Disable command and disable this sound macro. When you are finished, disable the macro from within Macro Explorer.

 

In your other macro you are running, near the top, enable the sound macro using the Macro Enable command. At the bottom of the macro disable the sound macro using the Macro Disable command.

 

What will happen is this:

- Your main macro runs.

- The Scheduled macro is enabled but it won't run until the main macro stops.

- If you terminate it for any reason, the Scheduled macro will run and make a sound.

- If the main macro finishes correctly, then the Scheduled sound macro will not run.

 

No, you cannot tell what caused the macro to stop so you cannot have different sounds for the HotKey vs mouse click to stop the macro.
