Default Template with Macros for Distribution

Greetings,

I have a template with macros that I need to distribute. I want to do this via a batch file that the user will run to install it. However, copies of the templates do not contain the macros. Is there a way around this?



Thanks in advance for any assistance,
~ Phil

Are you sure the macros are actually stored in the template and not in your normal template? Copies of templates are simply that - copies!

As for your distribution issues - WinRar can make a self extracting zip file that will install the template it contains in the appropriate folder. No doubt other zip utilities can do so also.

Do the copies have the dotM extension?
dotX won't have macros, must be the 'M'.
