      The ExecScriptCopy will put a command into the macro queue. The next command in the macro queue (might not be yours) will be executed *after* your command returns to the command line. The only way to do this is therefore:


      1.     Call AbortAllScripts() to make sure the macro queue is empty

      2.     Call ExecScriptCopy() with the macro to execute and your command name to return to the XP

      3.     Call CmdEnd() to terminate your command

      4.     Detect that you are reentering your command after the macro has been executed.


      The alternative is to use MYCMD and then return to MYCMD2 (but then you have to manually update the repeat command).


      Do you really need to call a macro command?

      OK this is what I've tried ... to no avail:


      while(AskScript() != 0)


      int _stdcall _AskScript()
      int s;
      __asm mov s, eax;
      return s;

      With a:

      #define AskScript _AskScript

      I really want to get past this issue, so please help!!!!!
