Please can anyone recommend a macro program with a "learn by example" feature, that can be run no-install from a USB stick?
The obvious answer is AutoHotKey
(AHK), but I've had hit-or-miss results with its AutoScriptWriter, and to get anywhere with AHK, you really need to start editing scripts. What I'm thinking of is the sort of job where you need to repeat an action 20 or 30 times or more, but may never have to do that job again. In those circumstances, the effort put into script writing might be greater than doing the job manually (if more interesting to do). A macro recorder would make it quicker and more painless.
I contacted Insight Software Solutions
, authors of Macro Express
, and they say they're working on a portable version, but can't give a release date (sounds like pressure of too many other things).WinMacro
by Senthil Kumar is a simple freeware macro recorder/player, but may be a bit too
simple. No editing of any kind, for instance.
