Vista - scheduling mute/unmute - does not work

Very Interesting.

 

 

I have the same problem. I just built a very simple macro that when I run it, it should mute my system. But it is not working.

 

Here is the macro... get ready:

 

<AUDMUTEON>

 

I'm running Vista 32, sp1. Macro Express version 3.7d (3.7.4.1)

 

Did I miss something, or is this particular function not functioning correctly?

Vista Home Premium (32bit), sp1.

 

I need this working or well, I will have one very unhappy sleeper on my hands!!!

 

I notice on that screen (Audio Control) where you can pick your macro function a number of them are NOT available on "this" system but audio mute/unmute IS AVAILABLE supposedly.

 

Also the audio toggle does not work.

 

Well, I found a workaround using a third party program, nircmd, which Macro Express can launch and then nircmd has command line parms that turn on/off speakers. It would be nice to have the internal command working since it suggests it should work.

When Vista originally was released, this command did not work. We made a change to fix this in a subsequent release of Macro Express. It looks like something has changed in Vista again that breaks this. We'll take a look at this and add a fix in the next release.

 

For now, here is a low tech solution that will toggle the sound on or off.

 

 

Move Mouse to Tray Icon: "Volume"

Mouse Left Button Click

Delay 250 Milliseconds

Text Type: <ALT>m<ESC>
