Import from 3.x doesn't work for me


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

i have tried to import my old macros from Version 3.7. But when i import the old file the new MacroExpress Pro stops working. Then it is no longer possible to click any part of the window. Only the Trayicon remains active and when i exit MEPro and restart it there are none of my old macros.

 

Does anyone else have this problem?

 

Best Regards

Yes, several other posts have addressed this issue. For some people it's a matter of minimizing or Alt+Tabbing to a window

that is hiding behind ME Pro.

 

For me, that doesn't help. I have taken to just copying the ME 3.x code and pasting it into an ME Pro edit window. It is certainly

slower, especially if there are hundreds of macros you need to move over, but it at least works.

I had the same problem. The dialog is coming up under other windows so you can't see it. Kevin told us the solution here.

I think I found a bug you might be seeing. When we were beta testing we saw the occasional incident where the dialog wold be behind but an ALT+Tab would remedy. But I just witnessed a case where this was not the problem and MEP just froze when it got to the macro selection window. http://bluepointdesign.com/macros/Issues/0002/ to see a video and write up. If the link doesn't wok go here as I update the folder name with the proper incident number when issued. I have created a bugrep for ISS. BTW I don't have a problem in Vista, only Windows 2003 Server.

Hello,

 

thank you for the answers. I just tried it and it worked like a charm. I already tried the Alt+Tab-Version but i always had MEPro in Fullscreen-Mode. Now i minimized it and saw the dialog.

 

Tahnks to you all - you have saved me a lot of work :-)

 

Sorry that i opened a new post - i didn't find the post which Namino told me because i only read the main-topics.....

 

I wish you all a happy new year

Kosti
