|MacroMaker has been tested on Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, 2003 and XP.|
Due to the User Account Control(UAC), Windows 7 and Vista do not allow applications access to the lower level functions needed for creating and playing back recordings or using the "Word or Phrase" trigger. That is unless I(The Author) purchase and maintain a digitally signed certificate. That will probably not happen unless I start charging for the application.
If the UAC is disabled MacroMaker will operate correctly.
Disabling the UAC is NOT RECOMMENDED. It is there for security reasons.
However, if you would like to you can disable the UAC in Windows 7 by going to the "Control Panel" and selecting "System and Security", then select "Review your computer's status", then select "User Account Control Settings". Slide the bar to "Never notify". You must now restart Windows. I have never bothered figuring out how to do this in Vista because I used Vista once.
|MacroMaker allows you to create macros or recordings to automate most anything that you already do by hand. MacroMaker was written more for the use of people who regularly use computers and programmers rather than the casual PC user. Most anything you know how to do by hand can be translated into a macro or recording in MacroMaker.|
|If you are having to perform repetitive tasks, this program will help you out tremendously.|
|The user can simulate a series of keystrokes, mouse events, play back previous recordings of keystrokes and mouse events or execute some built-in functions with just a keystroke. You can even store content from the clipboard in internal MacroMaker buffers for later use.|
