Mjtnet, to celebrate its 10 years in business, is offering a huge discount (more than 58%) on all versions of Macro Scheduler, its award winning macro automation tool.

Macro Scheduler is a perfect companion of Direct Access (text substitution and application launcher) which is offered to donation coder users at special price.

For those who don't know Macro Scheduler, it is Windows Automation Made Easy. The only solution with VBScript built in, a dedicated windows automation language with over 200 functions, full variable support, a native code editor and debugger, a macro recorder that creates real human code and the ability to create standalone EXE files. Powerful and flexible for the advanced user yet easily mastered by the novice.

You can get more information about macro scheduler from http://www.plimus.co...p?contractId=1653836

Macro Scheduler Standard at $40 (instead of $97)

I just had a look at the Image Recognition functionality (here): awesome!!

I guess it takes a bit of time to find images within screens... but amazingly handy when dealing with non-standard GUIs. Not sure it's worth the cost over AutoIT or AHK?

Macro Scheduler has a number of exclusive features (image recognition is one of those). On top of that you get first class support which is something you should consider too.

I'm with Perry... that is amazing. I probably don't... no scratch that: I definitely do not need this kind of functionality but I'm already hankering for a licence. The banker will K-I-L-L me if I spend a penny more on software though  >:(

It's funny how events group themselves together... Serendipity I think is an appropriate description  :)

Anyway, one of the things I did at work today was to automate the setting of specific (and temporary) printer settings for the girls that I manage. I did it with some AutoIT scripts.

Not a difficult task, I presume that it would have been similar AHK, but it involved:
  • opening and iterating through the printers in the Printers Folder
  • Selecting the correct printer
  • Opening the Printing Preferences by sending KeyStrokes to the window

MacroScheduler would have approached the problem in a completely different way, by:
  • actually looking for the graphic display of the required printer in the Window list
  • and clicking where it found it!

Both work, but I'd love to know how the two approaches compare in terms of speed and resources etc.

[You could all sorts of other neat stuff too, like looking at photos and seeing if they contain other defined images... I saw this done as a search tool somewhere once, where you could draw something on a canvas and the search engine would go off and look for images that resembled your drawing (or other photo)... where was that  :-\  :-\ ]
