Sorry, I should have been more clear.  I meant to direct that query to Cindy Kimmick, about her macro.  I probably should have sent that directly to her, though.  Apologies!

Oh, now that sounds useful!  I assume it is another macro.  Is it shared somewhere?

Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I'm familiar with the macros folder permission issue.  In fact, I've scripted it so all the users Connexion profile settings (login, toolbar, etc.) and macros follow them to whatever computer they log into.

I’m using a version from May 11, 2018 with Windows 10 and it works fine.

 

You probably checked but just in case, check the users permissions/security settings.  For macros to work correctly in Connexion, the user MUST have Read/Write permissions to the macros folder (even if they’re not editing any macros).  To make things easier in our installs, we give everyone the following permissions to the C:\Program Files (x86)\OCLC folder: Modify/Read&Execute/List folder contents/Read/Write

Thus far we can't get the authority toolkit (version released end of November) to work for regular users on Windows 10.  Our ILS is Voyager.

Installing the authority toolkit prevents Voyager from launching for regular users (gives message:  System startup error #339 (Component mscomctl.ocx not correctly registered ...).

Voyager launches fine for admins.

 

If we manually register the mscomctl.ocx and mscomct2.ocx (in c:\Voyager\system\), Voyager works again for regular users.  

 

If we launch Connexion as an admin, the authority toolkit works.  Regular users get the error:  "Macro NulToolkit!AuthorityCreate failed to complete successfully.  Error (429) on line #150:  Object creation failed."

 

We also tested a version from the end of September, and had the same results.

I’ve got a puzzling problem report from a user of the authority toolkit, and Windows 10 may be implicated, though I’m not sure how. (The defining symptom *may* stem from the toolkit’s inability to open and read from the file ViTagTableC.txt.) This user is able to use the authority toolkit on workstations running other Windows versions. Here at Northwestern, we use the toolkit under Windows 10 with no problems that I’ve heard of. (And I’ve watched it being used.) Could we hear experiences from other people who have successfully used the authority toolkit under Windows 10; or who have tried to do so and failed? Any hints that might help diagnose this problem would be welcome.
