You can run Macro Express in a Windows Terminal Services environment but there are a few things to consider. For example, if Macro Express is running on your workstation and you are trying to write a macro that automates things in a Windows Terminal Services session, the If Window commands do not work. The reason for this is that the window that Macro Express can see is the WTS window. The copy of Windows running on your computer only sees the WTS window, not the individual windows inside it. Consequently, Macro Express running on your local computer will only see the WTS window.


The Macro Express Knowledgebase contains more information about this and other limitations. Look at these articles:
