I'm using Google Pixel 7 Pro phone and when I try and install it says This app isn't compatible with my phone. Is there a version that is?

Your phone is lying to you, see this thread:
This is the error message from ADB
C:\adb>adb install --bypass-low-target-sdk-block MacroDroidHelper_v1_13.apk
Performing Streamed Install
adb: failed to install MacroDroidHelper_v1_13.apk: Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_DEPRECATED_SDK_VERSION: App package must target at least SDK version 23, but found 21]

Pixel 7 pro Android 14

OK, hold on it's working now
C:\adb>adb install --bypass-low-target-sdk-block MacroDroidHelper_v1_13.apk
Performing Streamed Install
Success

Not sure what I did except try it three times. Don't think I pressed the OK, somewhere above.

Are you 100% sure you wrote it right ?
I just up arrow repeated the command 3 times, then it worked
C:\adb>adb install --bypass-low-target-sdk-block MacroDroidHelper_v1_13.apk
Performing Streamed Install
adb: failed to install MacroDroidHelper_v1_13.apk: Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_VERIFICATION_FAILURE: Install not allowed for file:///data/app/vmdl666835121.tmp]

I guess you didn't allow installing or forgot to enable some permissions for adb.
Well it's working now.

Maybe something else you can help me with.
Macrodroid said I had to enter
"adb shell pm grant com.arlosoft.macrodroid android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS"
to allow mobile data to be turned on and off from macros.

I had this saved from last time.
Is there a list of other permissions that might be required so that I can enter them all in advance?

You can run this script to grant almost all permissions including ones that you can grant normally. They file is in a zip because I can't upload scripts directly.

That script looks good, a little similar to another script someone else wrote that seems to be intended to guide step-by-step and help download extract, and connect via ADB.
Hopefully, that developer will see your script and maybe integrate it.
Or maybe you two could work together on an official step-by-step script for newbies to use. https://gitlab.com/mhmatthewhugley/...e/TARSetupMacroDroidADB_HelperApplication.bat

The script I attached is part of another script that does approximately the same thing as what you linked although it is compatible with Linux (Android) and Windows.
I don't think @MacroDroidDev has time to create the script, fortunately some in the community can help with this.

Pardon my ignorance - does this zip file run on my PC or on my device?

On your device if you know how to (sh folder) or on windows (batch folder).
Thanks for the speedy reply. I just googled "sh folder" and it was way over my head. For Win11, if I download the file to my PC and then click on it will it do what's needed?

I can't install the helper app on the latest Android 14 Pixel build UQ1A.231205.015.
I get a message that it doesn't include the privacy policy and can't be installed.
There's some kind of text "install anyway" but if I click that it again says in another pop-up type that it can't be installed because it's not compatible.
MacroDroid stopped working entirely. I mean it runs but no macros work.
I tried to reinstall the helper because MacroDroid stopped working properly. Yeah but now I can't even install the helper anymore 😕

As for installing the Android 14 helper, the method has been established since the beta version.
There is a thread explaining it, so please refer to it and do it.

If you still can't install, please post a detailed description of the installation procedure you followed.

Just downloaded and opened the APK to trigger the install. Then there's a new kind of pop-up telling me it can't be installed.

Which thread says it can be installed as is?
Please look it up properly.
There are instructions for installing the Android 14 helper.
