Rules Wizard does not exit when run in a macro

I am using the below macro to run my rules wizard but I when I add on any {ESC} or {TAB}{ENTER} to then close the window after I run the command it doesn't work - it just leaves the window open. Could anyone assist to close the window (and then the next one) after the command has run?

SendKeys "%Tl{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}{TAB}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{DOWN}{+}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}", True

What's happening is that the window that is being displayed is a dialog type message and when this type is displayed it stops all the code that is running.

You would have to compile your macro into an external .exe file and call it from your macro.  This way outlook cannot stop the code since it is in another process.
