Re: Compiled EXE Disinfected

So for any applications that are reported, each individual compilation needs to be sent for checking, isn't it? For the certificates, based on what I see those require payment? Are there any alternatives that do not require any sort of subscription? And if the new version of Macro Scheduler does not...

Compiled EXE Disinfected

Currently using Macro version 14.2.03. However, when I compile the program in Macro, my EXE files disappeared, with my antivirus detecting "VHO:Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Generic". What is the cause of this, and is this issue solved in a future version?

Thank you for reading.

SFTP in Macro Scheduler

In Macro Scheduler, there are functions for FTP based on what I have seen in the help file. Does Macro Scheduler support SFTP? If so, are there any differences between both FTP and SFTP in terms of how the code is written?

Thank you for reading.

Re: Using two Excel Book Handles at once

Never mind, I found out the problem just now: it's the fact that the Excel is considered "unactivated", which means that when I open Excel, there would be a pop up stating to activate it.

Check if Excel Sheet Exists

I am experiencing a problem now. I followed the code from a previous thread (Verify Excel Sheet), but I could get the results to return "True" if the Excel sheet exists. Is there anything that I have missed out in the code? (Ignore the MonthNumber function, because it will be used in another part of...

Task Scheduler EXE without user login

There is a program that I have made that involves opening a designated program and then using keyboard commands on it, but the program is meant to run as a task in Task Scheduler. However, based on my testing, I found out that it will not run when the option "run whether user is logged on or not" wi...

Determine if a file is open

There is a certain application that I would like to check on whether the file is open. Basically the macro requires that this application is open before I do anything. Otherwise, I would put the message that the program is not open. What is the best way to approach this problem? Thank you for reading.

Executing Macro Commands in Remote Desktop

Something I have recently found out is, when accessing Remote Desktop (RD), some of the commands are executed on the PC that is used to access the RD, but not within the RD itself. This means that commands like WaitWindowOpen or WaitWindowClosed will not work within the confines of the RD, even thou...

Get File List, including files in subfolders

The GetFileList function is useful for getting the list of files within a particular folder, but what I want to do currently is to also look for certain files in sub-folders, so for example, I want to look for all PNG files in a designated folder and any folders within the folder. What is the best w...
