  19. Bugs Fixed

  20. Fixed a problem that occurred where if a macro file was temporarily unavailable when Macro Express Pro Explorer was loaded, a new file with 0 bytes was created.
  21. Fixed a problem that caused the preferences and the list of macro files to be loaded to be corrupted after certain types of crashes.
