Strange Behavior

Post by dabineri » Sun Jan 15, 2017 9:19 pm

Macro Tool Works suddenly stopped writing text macros in JUST my Thunderbird Email. It works fine in Word and Notepad and everywhere except Thunderbird which is where I have been using it with no problems and is where I need it the most.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Macro Tool Works several time and restarted the computer numerous time.
In email the box showing the macro being played shows as usual.
The Log file indicates that the macro played but no text shows up in the email.
On another computer it continues to work fine everywhere including Thunderbird.

Anyone else had this problem or have a suggestion as to how to solve this issue? Thanks, Dave

Since you can see from the log that the macro was actually executed then I'm thinking about two scenarios:

1. The Thunderbird window does not have focus (does not receive keyboard keystrokes). - You can find out easily if this is the case: Just try to type something along with the macro executing (start macro and type).
2. The Thunderbird runs with Admin privileges and ignores keystrokes from Macro Toolworks if it runs with user privileges. - In this case you may want to try to run Macro Toolworks with Admin privileges.

Best regards,
