Macro Express v - Macro Express Pro v


Macro Express 5 and Macro Express Pro 6 have been updated with many improvements, UI adjustments and bug fixes. There is one important change of particular note.


Recently Windows Defender SmartScreen began blocking unwise.exe, the program used to uninstall Macro Express, due to security vulnerabilities. Blocking occurred when using Microsoft Edge and Windows 10 whether or not Windows Defender or another Internet Security program was being used. You likely experienced this issue if you attempted to uninstall Macro Express.


The installation programs for the non-portable versions of Macro Express 5 and Macro Express Pro have been replaced with new setup programs. This change requires two important considerations.


  1. Automatic Update will update your existing copy of Macro Express to the latest version but the uninstaller from the previous versions of Macro Express will not be removed from the Apps & features list in Windows Setup. If, in the future, you try to uninstall Macro Express, Windows Defender SmartScreen will block it. To avoid this problem download and install the full setup program from macros.com/download.htm.
  2. The Advanced Installation options have changed. If your company or organization is using the Advanced Installation options to deploy Macro Express your installation procedures will need to be updated.
