Can Macro Express 3.x run in an inactive window?

Macro Express interfaces with Windows with something called the 'hooks'. The hooks allow Macro Express to send keystrokes, mouse movements and mouse clicks. Windows will only send keystrokes, mouse movements or mouse clicks to the active window.

 

Depending on how the application you are automating is written you may have some success using the Window Control commands. Either search this forum for 'Window Control' or look in the Macro Express help.
