My case is simple and i don't know what i'm doing wrong, the tutorial is clear about this, it should work. When i write pste i want the contents of the clipboard send as keystrokes(i'm using it to paste text in windows console that do not support ctrl+v) so far i've tried

:*:pste::Send, %clipboard%
:*:pste::Send %clipboard% ;no comma
:*:pste::Send, %Clipboard%
:*:pste:: %clipboard%
:*:pste:: %Clipboard%

in every single case it writes down the text after :: so i type pste and the script writes %clipboard% or Send, %Clipboard% and so forth if it matters im not compiling the ahk

    If you got it to work, please post the solution as an answer and not an edit. I'm getting rid of the edit so you can put it as a real answer. – Wuffers Apr 20 '11 at 5:00
Send %clipboard%

According to http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Hotstrings.htm variables are not supported in hotstrings.
