Macro Doesn't Run On Startup


Recommended Posts

I have a laptop with a external monitor connected. In order only to use the external monitor I have to press [ctrl] + [alt] + [f1].


I have downloaded the latest macro express and want to see if it can do the trick for me.


But the macro doesn't run when Windows starts. If I run it manually it works like a charm.


What is wrong?

On some systems Windows is not ready to allow macros to run as soon as Macro Express is loaded. Try the option to delay loading Macro Express found in Options | preferences | Startup. Make sure the checkbox on the line under "Run on Windows' Startup" that says:

[ ] Wait for [ ] seconds


is checked and enter some number of seconds. I would try a high value at first like 45 seconds. If it works, reduce the number of seconds down until you reach a more acceptable value.
