This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I wrote one ages ago to use in testing software. Last time I tried it, it still worked, on XP. It just captures window event messages, writes them to a file, and then another app plays them back. I'm always a little nervous about tools like that, wondering if it could be used by the wrong people to collect passwords or whatever. – Mike Dunlavey Apr 19 '11 at 1:44 – Fel Apr 20 '11 at 0:52

I mainly use AutoHotkey but I have also used MortScript before.

AutoHotkey is nearly completely backward compatible with AutoIt v2, and it has a macro recorder whereas MortScript has no recording feature.

great! I have to modify to script after the recording because it is not working, but finally it is working! – lamwaiman1988 Apr 20 '11 at 7:41
Does Autoit have a macro recorder? – wizlog Nov 15 '11 at 21:38

Did you try AutoIt?
