My Problems

I installed the trial version (no problem). Then copied my main macro file to the new folder. Then opened it and it converted fine.

 

Below are the problems I've had

Do you think you could break these problems into individual posts? It would make it a lot more easy to address.

 

No Items in Start Menu: I too saw that once in Beta. But if you need to reboot, you need to reboot. You shouldn't try running it without.

Macros not running in IE7: I have tons of macros that run in IE7 and they work perfectly Can you be more specific and give some examples?

Type Text Speed: I noticed this too, MEP seems to be able to type faster and a few applications seem to be sensitive to this. EG JavaScript applets. But you don't need to add a speed command before each type command. You can increase the delay in the program Preferences or you can add one keystroke speed at the beginning of your macro once.

Window Reposition in IE7: Works just fine for me. Please be more explicit.

Break: It always worked in Vista for me.

Repeat with folder order: I don't' understand your problem or your example. Are you saying it is processing things in a different order? Your example shows a different set of files.

I received an email last week stating the problem with IE7 was something to do with IE7's protected mode.

 

I received another email today (01-09-2009) stating:

'Issue submitted by you has been resolved. The change will be available with the next release of Macro Express Pro'

I use Firefox and occasionally IE6, but from your later post it sounds like this is an ME Pro bug that's now acknowledged and fixed.

I had same problem immediately after installation, but it's been fine ever since.

 

* Type Text

- Had to add a Keyboard Speed command just prior to all Type Text commands

 

In addition to the points Cory made, see also my suggestions in Post #7 of this thread

 

* Window Reposition not working for Vista Windows Internet Explorer v7

- Tryed a different HotKey command

- This works using Macro Express v3.7.4.1

- Works with all other apps windows

 

I'm using XP Pro (and Firefox) but I did have some odd resizing/repositioning problems in ME 3 a while ago, as per this thread.

 

* Repeat With Folder

- Listing not pre-sorted (see below) [Not a big deal]

 

Not sure I follow that one. Are you saying those are the respective results using the identical folder with identical contents?

 

* Break Command Working (see below)

- Was not working in version v.3.x on Vista

As Cory said, it's usually better to post each topic separately unless they are clearly related. And it can help if you provide actual code (copied from Direct Editor) wherever possible, plus details of activation and scope.

I was woundering if the problem w/ IE7 or greater (I've downloaded IE8 beta on another PC) has been fixed.

I download the new MacroExpress Pro to see if it works but I'm past the 30 day limit an don't want to spend the $ if this problem is not better
