Convert Macro

The Convert Macro utility enables you to convert an existing Z and I Emulator for Windows Macro file to XML or a VBScript file.
Note: Macros that are converted to XML are intended for use in ZIEWeb (Z and I Emulator for Web) and will not function in Z and I Emulator for Windows emulation sessions. Use the ZIEWeb Macro Manager to import a converted Z and I Emulator for Windows macro into ZIEWeb. These converted macros will not appear in the list of available Z and I Emulator for Windows macros.

To use the conversion utility, click HCL Z and I Emulator for Windows → Utilities → Convert Macro.
