Just a thought: will Macro Scheduler run on the new phones with Windows 10?

I wouldn't have thought so, no. I rather hope not to be honest. The idea positively scares the cr*p out of me from a support point of view.

We've had Windows CE and then Windows Mobile for years and they have NEVER been able to run Win32 apps - the hardware is too different.

But according to the article they are "investigating" the possibility of running Win32 apps on Windows mobile (dort of):

Did you know we are now offering affordable monthly subscriptions for Macro Scheduler Standard?

Just bought an Chinese "Onda V820w"-tablet with Win10/Android and it runs MS just fine. Pure Win10-phones are just around the corner.
