Create a "Playable Macro" that also terminates "Macro Express Player"


Recommended Posts



I am trying to create a "Playable Macro" that acts as like a shortcut.

It opens an Office program and performs a task.


Upon completion of the main commands, it has a "Terminate Macro Express" command.


I don't want uneccessary programs, like "Macro Express Editor" & "Macro Express Player", running in the background.

I want to run my shortcut, and be done with it.




As a "Playable Macro"...

The "Terminate Macro Express" command only closes the editor.

It leaves the player running.


I don't have this problem when running it from the editor.

It closes everything there.




- When using a "Playable Macro", is there a way to end ALL "Macro Express" components (player and editor)?


- When using a "Playable Macro", is there a task-kill command that can end the "Macro Express" task manager processes?


- Do you have any other ideas, where "Macro Express" doesn't run in the background...but its commands are executed properly?
