You can download the Macro Recorder from this link -- https://keybreeze.com/download/macro_recorder/. It must be placed in the same directory where Keybreeze.exe is running. Typically this is C:\Program Files (x86)\Keybreeze5. You mentioned that you got it installed but it wouldn't do anything. Were you getting an error message? Did the program open and then immediately close? Or did everything appear to work but it wasn't able to record your mouse clicks and keystrokes?

It sounds like the restore point is what is causing the blue screens. I haven't used System Restore in Windows in a long time, but there are some links online that explain how to undo a system restore point if you want to revert your computer back to the state it was in prior to the system restore. Doing that may fix the blue screens. You can back up your Keybreeze settings by following the instructions at this link -- https://keybree...

How to paste KeePass passwords with Keybreeze macros

Actually, while I was working on this, I discovered that it is possible to include comments in macros. Just include the text outside of the commands, and it shouldn't affect the playback of the macro.

Unfortunately it's not possible to add comments in macros, but I do think this would be a good enhancement. I'll work on this for the next version.

If you right-click the macros [create] keyword and click Edit, or if you select the keyword from the Command List and click Edit, the target should be the following.

preset:macros [create]

If you save that, press the hotkey, and run the keyword, it will try to run the following.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Keybreeze5\Keybreeze Macro Recorder.exe

If that file doesn't exist, you can download it from https://www.keybreeze.com/download/macro_recorder/ and move it to that directory.

Hi John,

To copy your version 4 settings to version 5, please follow these steps. I revised these slightly from https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/23/where-are-my-settings-stored-how-do-i-transfer-settings-to-another-machine since you already activated the Pro version:

Version 4 to version 5:

1. On the old machine, click Start > Run > type %appdata% and press Enter.

2. Copy the Keybreeze4 folder to a backup location, such as a network folder, email, or USB stick.

3. On the new machine, click Start > Run > type %appdata% and press Enter. Paste the Keybreeze4 folder from the backup location to the new one.

4. On the new machine, if Keybreeze 5 is already installed, back up the %appdata%\Keybreeze5 folder. Then uninstall Keybreeze 5 from Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Hello,

I was able to reproduce the error when typing an recognized entry with a dash present. I'll fix this for the next version.

In the meantime, you can type add as a keyword and add a keyword that opens e-sword. If the name exists in the command list, it will not throw the error:

If Win+R doesn't work either, it is likely a Windows permission issue. You might try mapping the network folder to a drive letter. That may cause Windows to display an error that explains what the problem is. Regarding the crash that occurs when making a change to a text function, I'm not able to reproduce that issue. Would you be able to send me a screenshot of the error and the windows that are open behind it? I can send you an email if you want to respond to that with the screenshot.

For the network folder, if you press the Windows key + R and paste the same target there, e.g. c:\windows\explorer.exe \\machine-name, does that work? If the target matches between the Run dialog box and the Target text field of Keybreeze Desktop, it should work from both. If it doesn't work from both, it could be due to Windows permissions. Keybreeze Desktop could be running as a different user or with a different set of permissions from the Run dialog box, or there could be something else at play, like UAC or third party software, that is blocking Keybreeze Desktop from accessing that network folder. Does it work if you open a network folder from the same machine, e.g. c:\windows\explorer.exe \\127.0.0.1. If that works, it would indicate that something is blocking Keybreeze Desktop from accessing the original network folder. For the crashing issue when running the 'list' and 'add' keywords, I haven't heard of that happening before. If you run them by themselves, everything wor...

Hi Steve,

If you moved to a new PC, the Email Address Converter must be downloaded separately, which you can do so here -- https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/73/outlook-email-address-converter. If you already downloaded the Email Address Converter and are getting an error, please let me know what that error is.

Are you getting an error when opening files in network locations? Or is it taking a long time? If the latter, try the following -- https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/39/how-to-open-a-network-folder-or-file-from-keybreeze.

There is a way to run Keybreeze Desktop as an administrator every time, but it involves several steps, so I documented this in a separate post -- https://keybreeze.com/forum/post/88
