stevecasper Posted May 8, 2009 Report Share Posted May 8, 2009 Ok, this will almost certainly need to find its way into an official bug report, but I'm not quite sure what is actually happening, so I don't know what to tell the ISS guys. I'm hoping somebody on these forums has a) had similar issues, understands a little about what is probably happening, and/or c) can help me know what to keep an eye out for so I can attempt to duplicate the error with some margin of success. Here it is: Macro Express terminates, without warning, from time to time. It simply stops running. I'll be using it, happy as a clam, letting it do my work for me like a lovely little indentured servant, when suddenly I release a hotkey and... nothing. Hmmm... maybe I didn't push the key down all the way. Retry. Nothing. Crap! I look for "Forrest" (that's for you Cory), but he's not there. Strange, he's usually there, even when no macro is running. No MEP icon in the task-bar, either... well that's not unusual, since that icon tends to hide, even when I've set it to "Always Show". So I click the little carat to see hidden icons. No MEP. $%@&*!!!!! MEP has terminated! DAGGUMIT!!!! <breathe deeply> Ok, Start > Programs > StartUp > Macro Express Pro > *click* <wait for it> ... <wait for it> ... <wait for it> Nothing. FNA. Try it again. Nothing. Ah ball-caps. Reboot entire machine > MEP back in action. _____________________________________ So, anybody else have similar problems or know enough about computer systems to throw me a bone? If it helps: Windows XP Pro SP3 AMD Sempron Processor 3000+ 1.79 GHz, 960 MB RAM Running dual 17" monitors Oh, one more thing: After rebooting, MEP starts with a blank macro file. This is probably the most concerning part of the crash... In general if you shut down, when you launch again, MEP starts up where it left off. But with this crash... I get nervous about losing information. Fortunately I've mostly figured out the Backup files problem I was having before, so it's not quite as scary as it was before... and yet...
