Macro Express 4.4.1.1 & Windows 7


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am running into an issue with a macro I am building and I'm not sure if a preference in Windows 7 is the reason or not. I have an application that is running 4 sessions. The macro is set to restore each window and log me in using the keyboard/type text command. After it completes that, it is set to minimize the window and then restore the next one and repeat the process.

 

It seems to run perfectly when the sessions are not grouped together on the taskbar. However, when the windows are grouped, it only successfully logs me into 1 of the 4 sessions.

 

This is being built for several users (hopefully) so I'm not sure what their preferences are as it relates to the taskbar. I was hoping to build this so that it will run successfully whether their sessions are grouped or not.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
