Why won't this file close?

Recommended Posts

I tried tackling it by removing this weird registry entry - in vain.




That entry is plainly invalid anyway, as the path doesn't exist on this new PC. There is no 'My Documents' on it. So how is it getting recreated when ME Pro runs?

I had this helpful reply answering my parallel email to Insight:


Any macro file that is in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Insight Software Solutions\Macro Express 4\Files

or for 64-bit versions of Windows

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Nod\Insight Software Solutions\Macro Express 4\Files

is defined as a persistent macro file. It cannot be closed by the user.


There were two identical unwanted entries in that registry key. After deleting both, I was pleased to find that samples.mex disappeared.
