Good Freeware Macro Recorder?
 
I'm all Googled out and I'm frustrated so I thought I would ask here.
Back in the days of Windows 3.11 there was a cool Accessory called
Macro Recorder that was a standalone macro recorder that could be used
to record keystrokes and mouse movements. When Windows 95/98/ME came
out, Microsoft quietly dropped Macro Recorder. After much searching I
finally found a substitute called PxRecorder which worked for those
OS's so I was happy. Now that I'm using WinXP, PxRecorder does not
work and I no longer have a macro recorder. WinMacro keeps popping up
all over the place so I tried it but it doesn't function the way I
want (it doesn't seem to record ALT or CTRL keys, for example. Can
anyone recommend a good free standalone macro recorder? Keep in mind
I'm not talking about something that requires writing a script, such
as AutoIt.

Thanks
~Sly

I've gotta suggest PowerPro.

It's part of my systems (98/2000/XP I multi-boot), I'd be lost without
it at this point.

Yes it does macros very well, and a whole lot more. Pretty much
whatever you need to do, it will configure for it.

Several people have written "Script Writers" for AutoIt3 that record a
script when you perform actions, so that it is in essence a macro
recorder. ask at the forum. The forum is VERY friendly and active...

I remember there is one named "Auto Macro". Not free, but it seems easy to use.
