In Admin mode, Notepad++ does not hear keystrokes sent by Macro Scheduler Lite 14.0.18

    (Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit) When I invoke the macro, an info bubble appears in the tray area, to indicate that the macro has executed. But Notepad++ does not receive any of the macro's keystrokes.

    This problem occurs only when Notepad++ is started with the "Run this program as an administrator" property enabled.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If I remember properly, an application in user mode cannot send any message to an application in admin mode, this would explain it. Unfortunately this also would imply that you need to run the scheduler as admin as well.
