     This utility allows you to create a keyboard script which, when played, sends keyboard events to your target application as though a human user had. This is a great way to deal with batch processing of tasks that you know are repetitive. It can also be used for scripting demonstrations.

In addition to just sending key combinations, the macro language allows you to pause for user intervention, wait for a number of seconds or milliseconds, insert helpful comments, and so on. Think of it as application integration scripting.

To make your job easier, you can call up an active "cheat sheet" with all the codes for oddball keys like backspace or print-screen. The program includes a simple but complete (plain text) help file.

And you can save and later reload load your scripts, too.

Your comments are welcome. And if you like this utility, please vote for it. Thanks.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
