Macro Express Pro v 4.1.0.1

    Enhancements

  1. Removed the 'Debug Variables' pane from the script editor. The variable values are now contained in a new, floating window. This window is available under Debug > Show Variable Values. Also, the window will only show the variables that have been modified, making it easy to see what variables are in use by the macro.
  2. Added an option to convert a date/time variable to a string in the 'Variable Modify Date/Time' command.
  3. Added a 'Close Macro File' command. If the command attempts to close the only open macro file, the 'Cannot close file' error will be thrown.
  4. Macro icon paths are now virtualized so they can be portable between version of Windows.
  5. Made a change to the 'Load New Macro File' so that if a macro file is already loaded, the file will still be reloaded in addition to throwing the 'Already Loaded' error message.
  6. If the user attempts to delete a macro that is currently being edited, no action is taken and the user is informed why.
  7. Made a modification to make the emailing of attachments more reliable.
  8. When the system tray icon is specified to launch a macro, instead of opening the explorer, if the macro file is not open, it will be opened before the macro is launched.
  9. When installing an update, the installer will now default to the path where Macro Express Pro was previously installed.
  10. Modified the potential shortkey conflict warning.
  11. The F1 key now brings up the help in the script editor's find/replace dialog.
  12. When reporting an error, the memory is now reported correctly on 64-bit systems.

  16. The 'Volume Up' and 'Volume Down' commands now work properly on Vista systems.
  17. The 'shield' icon is now displayed next to the 'License Information' on the help menu for Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines.
  18. Added Windows 7 to the 'Get OS Version String' and 'OS Version' commands.
  19. Updated the sample macros to support Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 and to improve reliability.
  20. Uninstall now works on Windows 7.
  21. The trial license now works on Windows 7.
  22. Crashes that occur on Windows 7 now say Windows 7 in the crash report.
