Scheduling macro in Windows 10

Question:

I am using windows 10. I can run the macro as an exe just fine but when call it from task scheduler It does not run.



Answer:

Macro has to run in the foreground as the signed on user. Please adjust the settings for the task in Windows Scheduler and reschedule the task; it should now run as expected.

If the above fails... Consider creating a cmd / bat file with the command 

MacroRecorder.exe "c:\Macro Recorder\macro.mcr" /a

The "/a" switch instructs Macro Recorder not just to open the file, but to launch playback right away. 

You can optionally add the "/c" switch as well, so macro recorder will close after playback is finished.

Then run the batch file from the scheduler.
