How to prevent seeing the “A new sample macros file (samples.mex) is available” message?

1) The message about a new sample macros file can be turned off via the “Display updated sample macros notification” option found in Options, Preferences, General, Misc tab in the Updates section.

2) If you are creating a .WCFG file to use while installing Macro Express Pro then you should disable this option before creating the .WCFG file. 

3) If you are using software to push Macro Express Pro you could change the following value in the registry:

  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Insight Software Solutions\Macro Express 6\Misc\Display Updated Sample Macros Message

Change the value from 1 to 0 to supress the message.

4) If a user sees this message and clicks either Yes or No they will not see the message again unless a new samples.mex file is placed in the “c:\Program Files (x86)\Macro Express Pro 6” folder.
