Crew Macro uninstalling everytime I reopen Alteryx

Meteoroid

I installed the latest version of the Crew Macros, however, I have to keep installing the macros every time I reopen Alteryx.

 

I went to options, user settings, and added the macro path but I am still having problems. Does anyone know how to prevent the macro from uninstalling?

 

Thanks,

@BXH03NI ,

 

When you install the CReW macros, you place two files into:

 

C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\DataProducts\AddOnData\Macros

 

They are:  CReW.ini and CReWTest.ini

 

Inside of these ini (text) files you'll find the location of where you have unzipped the macros along with more data:

[Settings]
DefaultFolder=CReW Macros
MinimumAlteryxVersion=10.0
Path=D:\CReW Macros\Macros

If for some reason, the c:\programdata files are not persistent or if the location of the CReW macro unzip is not persistent, then I would understand why the macros disappear.  Perhaps you've got a conflict where you've manually added a macro location in front of these macros.  Uninstall the macros and that might help you.  I'm sorry that they have created an issue for you.

 

Cheers,

Note:  If when you open the zip file, you don't actually save the data to a permanent subdirectory, the ini file will point to a temporary file.  You need to unzip to your hard disk before installing.

Thank you! Unzipping the files worked.
