This was working fine, but suddenly it stopped recording macros. Now I can use only the macros I created before.

Anyone have any such experience???

I agree with Peter. Autohotkey is the best macro recording program. it even allows you to run it portable. And you can create full programs with it in addition to simple macros.

Installs perfectly fine on XP SP3 but immediate uninstall.
It works exactly like it supposed to but I use my laptop for internet banking every day and if it were stolen,that would be a problem.The thief would not require any passwords.

Installed and registered nicely on XP system. I set up a simple set of tags for inserting HTML blockquotes with formatting in a desktop blog client.

On attempt to playback the macro, I got an error message saying the macro was interrupted. Nothing about why or what I could do. On the first try, the macro typed the first character in the string before aborting. After that, it wouldn't do anything but display the error message.

I tried changing the record, stop and playback keys. Same error message.

When I went to uninstall, I got warning messages about removing two of the program's components, so I had to archive those and cross fingers there won't be problems.

All in all a complete bust.

Thanks for a great program. I've been looking for something just like this and tried several trial programs without finding one that I liked. I like this one. Does just what I wanted, connects to the program I wanted, and easy as pie to use.

Oh my god, how are you even reading this website in that OS? Did it even know what networks were. I know win 3.x was useful in its day, but really...:)
Why would you want to automate anything on Win3.x anyhow? Read the system requirements please

My wife has Early Onset Alzheimer's, but likes to play Sims2. Does anyone know if this, or any other, macro recorder or macro program would create macros which only work in Sims2? I would like to set up some cheats so she will always have enough money to get her peeps into any house. Any suggestions for fairly simple, untimed brain challenging games would also be appreciated.

How I frequently use a Macro: In effect, as a download manager -- to "automate" the process of downloading a large number of files from a website when they are NOT compressed into a single file, but must be accessed one-at-a-time by clicking on each file's link.

Use a Macro creator that 1) simulates keystrokes AND mouse operations, and 2) allows for scheduled execution times.

Create a new Word document. Copy and paste all links into the document (one link per line). Save the Word document.

Create a Macro to do the following: Open the Word document. Select the document's FIRST line (a link) and copy it to the clipboard. Paste the copied link into your web browser's address box and click Enter. When the save dialog box appears, make the appropriate clicks to download and save the file. Once the download begins, return to the Word document to delete the FIRST line (all other lines automatically move up). Save the Word document.

Schedule executions of the Macro far enough apart to allow downloads to complete. I've used this procedure to download numerous files while I sleep.

Installs and runs on
Windows 95 SR2 (tried for PM #1 )
Windows 98Se (tried for PM #1 )
Windows XPx32
Windows XPx64
Windows XP MCE 2005
Windows XP MCS x64
Windows Vista Ultimate x32
Windows Vista Ultimate x64

Can be used but unstable under WINE.

Very useful: It does exactly what it says. I've been testing it using Open Office to alt + file +save as +txt +OK to convert DOC, RTF, and DocX files to normal text. Stable,

No noticeable hit in resources.
Appears stable so far.

To #1 PeterM: For your 95 upgrade to SR2, worked fine for me. Try static.95.update.microsoft.com/default or Driverguide.com (membership section) for the update. Else try MSDN or TechNet. Microsoft will also still ship you an update CD if you have your original (and legitimate) serial number. Just call Microsoft's tech support line for your product (in the manual or check Help->support->contact->by phone, and let them know you need the update. I believe it's still $9.99 shipping/handling charge in the US. The lower standard opperator may not be able to get it done for you, and if not ask for the supervisor (who may have to call you back).

Bubba_in_NV: not everyone has window 2015 v99 yet. As in a post last week, there are far more pre-xp home systems out there than xp+.

If I get enough +s from this post, I'll start trying to install and run the giveaways
on Windows 2X, 3x, 95/98 era systems too for those that have them. And anything else others want me to try.

Everyone here wants to be spoon-fed. Yes, #64, xStarter was interesting, but it had obnoxious copy-protection and hooked into everything. RoboTask was a similar offering. QuicKeys has interesting features. WinAutomation, for the same price, is interesting. The feature sets are all different. MouseRobot, another previous offering, combined with Vista's Task Scheduler, does what I need. In Vista, you can use Event Viewer to attach tasks to events. MouseRobot has the ability to find controls/items whose positions can change, to make sure that you're selecting the proper item, and it's easy to read and edit the macros. But that's for the things that I need; as I stated previously, automation utilities have different feature sets and different uses.

@Larry B, 12: "Missing Registration Button"
Fubar, #16 gave a good hint. But I know you can still get into a situation where there is no button whatever you do and you are still not properly registered aswell ("about" will tell you about your registration-status).

Fubar is right though that this has something to do with a former installation.
Don't worry you will get registered though.

After installation go to [%appdata%\Easy Macro Recorder] and find file "zc.reg" (or just make a search for it on your systemdisk
This file can be opened in notepad. Provide the registrationdata by saving it in that file (you will see the right spot "name=GiveAwayOfTheDay" etc).
Start up the app again and there you go, registered!

@Ashraf, #34: "but serve the same purpose of helping you launch programs/do tasks more efficiently/quickly"
I'm sure you do realize that "that same purpose of launching programs/do tasks" in your provided alternatives is just very little compared to the many purposes macro's can have. Purposes much more different and versatile.

My personal favourite is AutoHotKey, also mentioned before by Ashraf and others, but it is more difficult to understand when you're not used to it. It has way more possibilities though.
EasyMacroRecorder is not reliable in timing when using recorded mousemovements. Like you can get into a situation that the macro clicks the mousecursor on a spot where the targeted screencontrol has not yet appeared. Also AutoHotKey is capable of making standalone executables that can be used on another pc.

This is a pretty simple app, but at least it is easy to use. I would recommend this to people who don't even yet know what a macro is and I recommend to them that they install this program to find out because they will fall in love with the concept immediatly. But the lack of extensive features of this program highly limits the utility of macros.
That is all about the program offered today.
For more options and more advanced users I highly recommend xstarter. It is not free but was given here a long time ago and I had a great experience from it. If you are into macros and feel confident having plenty of options to configure, then this is the macro application you should get, so watch for this software in case it is re-offered and download it as soon as you see it or just buy it and fullfill GOTD's purpose. 30 day trial of xstarter here;
http://www.xstarter.com/
I know I sound like one of those stupid advertisements but I found it to be such a great macro app 2 years after I lost it in a computer crash it is one of the few applications that I miss and remember. I think it is worth a try. Just to give an example, one of the most usefull presets (in my opinion at least) that came with the program at the time was to quickly put the screen on standby. Pretty usefull for laptops...
Hope this helps,
AR

The site should add a voting option of "didn't install" or at least make people click through something that says they installed it before they vote.

Another option would be to make you sign up for an account before you download and only those that have downloaded can vote.

Don't give a piece of software a thumbs down just because you don't want to install it or don't have a use for it.

Autohotkey and Autoit require learning a scripting system, and if you use them seldom, you forget the syntax until the next time you use it. Therefore, they are useless unless you make makros often. Autohotkey and Autoit are for programmers and computer professional who need to make makros often, rather than for ordinary computer users. Of course they are more powerful, but you need to think twice if you really need that power - for my part I know some programming, yet I don't find there are worth the time it takes to learn the scripting.

This program if very useful for those who need an easy to use a makro recorder without having to know any scripting.

Thank you GAOTD for this program!

I don't care if people give my comment #13 a thumbs-down. On most of these repeat giveaways, almost all of the new comments are useless. Many times, the comments on much earlier giveaways are more useful, back before so many people quit reading GOTD due to all of the repeats. QuicKeys, mentioned by #11, looks fairly powerful, although the interface is dated. But in that price range, there have been previous suggestions of very powerful automation utilities.

What people want automation utilities to do varies greatly, therefor they will choose different automation applications. Some people want simplicity, some people want speed of execution, some people want looping. Some people want ease of recording, some people want programming flexibility. For simple repetitive tasks in Windows, I generally use a scripting language. If I need to automate a GUI without conditionals or looping, I prefer AutomationBox MouseRobot, but it's more for people who think like programmers, even though there's no coding. There are always lots of comments about mouse operations, when keyboard operations would generally work better.

Another unrelated FYI: Microsoft Sysinternals ZoomIt 3 supports live, complete, high-speed full-screen zoom, only in Vista and higher. It's a little clunky in that mode, but it works. The magnified mouse pointer is the live pointer. The static full-screen zoom mode is still available, the two modes use different hotkeys.

Installed and registered automatically without a problem on XP SP2.

Seems to be useful.

However for one whose last use of macros was using Borland Products on CP/M and the early days of DOS the speed is a crawl!

I miss those DOS based programs that really did things quickly and were easy to use! There's no substitute for assembly language and talking to the processor directly!

However THANK YOU for a chance to get this program and i'll "play with it" to see if I can stand twiddling my thumbs while it works!

#45 Sadly yes some people are dumb.

Let's say someone asks "Does this work on Vista" People see Yes or No and obviously click No if it won't.

Others are sticklers for *ruleez* and think you should only comment on the software and NOTHING else
Getting a + (I've noticed) means typing 40+ lines of drivel that nobody has time to read but click on Yes *Because it looks good*

The only thing I can see your doing wrong is not upgrading your operating system. Did you really mean 3.1, 3.11 or were you actually making a joke? Until your post I didn't think anyone even had 5.25 floppy drive currently installed in there PC either. Windows 95 did come on s series of 3.5's though.

I have tried others, such as the aforementioned "AutoIt" and "AutoHotKey". Most of these apps are more complex than I can use or want. This one is just the 'right fit'.

On XP SP3, registration smooth, program works great.

Wow. Some of you people are unbelievable. Firefox? You're going to run all the programs on your computer through a browser? WTF does Firefox have to do with macros when you're not browsing?
And changing resolutions? Who regularly changes resolutions on their computer? This isn't a specialized programming tool, it's a general macro recorder/player for people without programming skills.
It's a wonder that companies are giving away software to people who don't even appreciate the gesture.
And once again, read the line above: Please comment only on the software here... (yeah, I know, my rant contravenes this too, but it has to be said. While you may have your pet proggies, why not reward the giveaway companies for their generosity by commenting specifically on their software?

@ Whiterabbit aka Stephen : Thanks for giving the reference. I appreciate your help.

GAOTD Team, I am concerned about the community here. I see people vote negative rating to most of the comments. I cannot understand why. So far I have commented many times and got +ve rating once. The rating says do you find the comment useful?

Here when I commented I was asking a question or seeking help. I was not giving any review or comment about this software. So why is it that people are giving my comments -ve vote? Are they Stupid, can't they see its a question and not some review. (I am sorry if I offend someone, but I am really pissed off). The comment system here is to help people not discourage them.

I also know people will vote out this comment as well. Even if I am not saying anything about the software.

Hi Agent 001:


IPersonally I have no need of a macro program, so won’t vote either way about todays program, though I will try to help you by posting the following links that may help to answer yours and other users questions about Macros in general. (I won’t use the term newbie as I find it slightly offensive):



Macros demystified: What they are and why to use them



Basics: Use Macros





How to use Macros to simplify your life

The above link uses Autohotkey, a freeware program available from:

I hope the above links are of use to you. :)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The reference to using macros for online gaming made by Jack comment #8 came as quite a surprise to me so thought I’d check into it and the statement was confirmed by the following link, though the games themselves appear to support macros only to a certain degree and don’t necessarily use an external maco recorder such as today’s giveaway. Thankfully Blizzard only allow one macro per go so they are actually quite limited. It would make it pointless playing such games if you could automate the whole process, lol.

I have used this software, that was also provided by GATD. I must say, this software is a really handy software, some times I have to do small but frequently repeated tasks in Photoshop etc. I can do them myself or I can do them with this progy. When I do them myself I get irritated at times and also expected to make mistakes by losing concentration. But this little tool helps me and I just put this software to work and go watching tv without worrying about irritation and mistakes. And not to mention it does the job some what faster than I can humanly do. So praise for Easy Macro Recorder.

USER RATINGS: It appears to me that people are using this to say "I don't have a use for this program" or "I do have a use for this program." Personally, I don't think this is the intention of the user rating.

As for the comments on this board, with all the whiners on here who don't pay attention to the real purpose of this site, we are going to start finding less and less options to choose from. If I were offering free software I wouldn't let it be offered here simply because many of you do not use this site as it was intended for, and often trash the programs offered just because it is something you don't have a use for, or for some other unusual reason that doesn't pertain to the purpose of this site. NO, I would not offer software here BECAUSE of how childish many of the commenter's are.

When we stop getting good offers, I don't want to hear the whining...which by the way, I have already witnessed numerous times. Think about how YOU are hurting this site with your comments please.

The Good
* Very easy to use.
* Has a macro editor if you want to create macros manually or edit them.
* Records mouse and keyboard strokes.
* You can choose what speed you want the macros to playback in.
* You can loop macros if need be.

The Bad
* You can't assign hotkeys to run each individual macro.
* Mouse movements/strokes are based off coordinates instead of program recognition.
* Default location to save macros to can't be changed.
* Can't record movements/strokes by mouse scroll wheel.

Registration and installation
Went fine.

Free Alternatives
AutoHotKey
AutoIt

The following programs are not macro recording programs but serve the same purpose of helping you launch programs/do tasks more efficiently/quickly
Launchy
ObjectDock
RocketDock

Yes Autoit and Quickkeys are more powerful but they're also much more difficult to use. And, yes, it won't run on Win 3 (?). And, no, if you don't need it you shouldn't use it. WTF is wrong with people, anyway?

Otherwise, it is a fairly good and useful program and has worked pretty well for me. Make of that what you will.

Seriously people! We'd all be better off not worrying about Peters Windows 3.1 or the voting on any given day. I'd much rather read about the days offer. And to make things clear, I don't think it's any of mine or your business who uses what OS or who votes either way on any single give away. I'm quite sure Peters aware of his antiquated operating systems short comings. Everybody can't afford a new computer.
Is there anything wrong with iMacros? Its a free Firefox addon that just happens to suit my needs so I pass today without voting on the offer or anyones comments. I think that would be called, "practice what you preach"! Keep your head in the game people.

This application is good, but I'm little disappointed to see that it does not support detection and change of current system resolution. Basically, as a Software Developer when I look at this program then I'm more disappointed; there is a provision of "commands" that developers have made in this application and even after that, there is nothing that allows me to Prompt a Message to the User or Change Screen Resolution and Restore it back to User's current resolution! These things can be achieved by a simple addition of two commands. Moreover, there are direct WIN32 APIs available to achieve these things, too. So not too complex coding required either. Hence, this forces me to conclude that there is not much thought or beta testing done with this application, which is a very bad thing.

"Compile to stand-alone Executable file" feature is missing, too (or at least I didn't find it). So, if I record a Macro and then I want to run it on another machine then how would I do it? Install this application on each machine? Oh, please don't ask me to do that; I can't ask all of my clients to download a particular application and install on their machines.

Personally I love AutoIt, not because it's Free but it's much more powerful than this application. Of course, it has a learning curve of its own and you really need to spend some time and "learn" AutoIt in order to use it for your very first project. But hey, it's great and powerful; once you master it, you will find lots of Freelance Programming opportunities for AutoIt project work, too.

Considering the fact that today's Giveaway Of the Day looks like designed for non-techie Users and for their own general use, I will give thumbs up; but double thumbs down for the Developers for not being able to foresee some obvious features, especially when you've developed the foundation to implement such features; too bad.

Best Wishes to Developers to bring up a better version next time ...

Installed and registered fine on Vista Home Premium. However when I try to record a macro everything freezes. While I can move the mouse cursor, clcking the right mouse button has no effect anywhere and my keyboard doesn't respond except for when I press Ctrl-Alt-S to stop macro recoring. Then I am allowed acces bak to my mouse and keyboard again. Doesn´t work for me I'm afraid.

#1 If you MUST stay with an old Win OS, then perhaps try Aldo's Macro Recorder (or similar) - Last Freeware Version website may have it.
Be careful when browsing through websites as your old OS (generally speaking) may have less protection built-in.
Modern browsers (Moz Firefox etc) offer WOT (Web of Trust) indicators - which can help you (not always as links can lead one anywhere) avoid popping into more "dangerous" sites.
If you continue to use the likes of Win95 or 98 then it would be prudent to install the likes of Kerio or ZoneAlarm firewalls - if you have not already done so. Also, you could try to find one IIRC named "mgsimplify" for your win 95/NT puters. Can't recall names of any others - too long ago :-)

As for today's software, Easy Macro, well if you need a macro recorder and don't have one, then give GOTD's offer a try. Only you can decide if it is worth keeping. As with most things in life, if it does not suit, then go for an alternative - or abandon the whole idea.
Some alternatives have been already mentioned by our previous posters.
Personally I do not require this offer but it's thanks nonetheless to our friends here at GOTD - who provide us with a good, free and often quite entertaining service.

I was using three different macro programs in the past because each one did things that the others wouldn't. This one does it all ... mouse x,y positioning, mouse clicks, delays (important when waiting for a webpage to load before filling in the required fields), function keys, text, etc. Once I transfer all my macros to this one, I'll be happy to ditch the others.

Installation, execution and registration all went smoothly in XP-home SP3.

Installed fine on Vista home premium and registration was a breeze.

Tested the easy to use program, and it does what it says beautifully. Definitely a keeper.
