If you spend any time reading our site, you know that we like anything that lets us save our precious time or cut some of the boring, repetitive elements out of our workflow. Our overworked brains especially like it when these apps are are easy-to-learn and easy-to-use.

Push The Freakin' Button Pro is right up our alley!

PTFB Pro is the perfect tool for automating tasks, reducing keystrokes, and best of all, getting rid of all those nagging automated requests that pop-up at the most inopportune times.

In effect, PTFB Pro is a "don't show this again" option for the many prompts and messages that don't have one of their own. Just tell PTFB Pro what buttons to press and when -- you'll never be bothered again!

And then there's the built-in macro recorder. It can record and playback complex sequences of mouse and keyboard actions, allowing you to quickly cut long repetitive tasks down to size.

PTFB Pro can periodically check to see if a program is currently running on your system. It can launch the target program if it isn't running or restart/close the program if it is.

PTFB Pro can even help keep interruptions at bay when you're not at your computer. Use it to keep attention craving applications from running in your absence, to fill out login fields, or even to keep your Internet connections alive!

Please note folks, the latest version brings the following new features: Visual Triggers, Greatly improved command line control for better integration with Powershell and other script shells, Control the clipboard, Track when a macro was last used and easily archive little-used macros and Instantly test your settings on the “Identifying the Target” page. You can read more about these here

This promotion includes the following:
PTFB Pro - Single License v5.1.2.0 ($39.99)
PTFB Pro - 5 License Value Pack v5.1.2.0 ($144.99)

bvssunnydale Hi, since I have multiple cpus (like many) a single cpu license like this really isn't very useful - or, maybe, could you sell a "family" license. No one has a single cpu these days (I have work, home, laptop, hobby, etc ones). Thanks much.

Benjamin User I already bought the single license, so if you ever decided to expand my actual license to multiple CPUs, please let me know about it as many prospects will probably not buy your product if you don't sell a family license.

In my case, I can use PTFB on all my computer session, but not multiple computers...

Susan Westlake I'm not overly familiar with Mouse Recorder Pro, but from their site is looks like it's not nearly as sophisticated as PTFB Pro; take a look at the range of trigger options, window recognition options and macro types offered by PTFB.

Fredrick Hello,

Noting that I personally perceive the PTFB licensing scheme as a bit overly restrictive and that installation on two computers is the norm, thank you for extending the offer to PTFB Pro value packs.

Related, may I please receive answers to the following questions?

1. Is transfer of a license to another owned computer allowed?

2. If applicable, does PTFB Pro use an on-the fly/automated licensing method, or is transfer handled via a non-automated method (e.g. email)?

3. Can the software be installed/registered any time?

4. Assuming license activation is required, how many installations are allowed per hardware footprint?

Thank you.

Susan Westlake Hi Frederick,

>> 1. Is transfer of a license to another owned computer allowed?
Yes of course.

>>2. If applicable, does PTFB Pro use an on-the fly/automated licensing method, or is transfer handled via a non-automated method (e.g. email)?

You uninstall from the old machine, install and register on the new machine. That's all there is to it.

>> 3. Can the software be installed/registered any time?
Yes.

>> 4. Assuming license activation is required, how many installations are allowed per hardware footprint?

We don't use license activation.

Benjamin User Susan, I already paid my license... how can I upgrade my currently license?

Susan Westlake Hi Benjamin - what do you mean by upgrade? Do you want to change it to one of the bigger license packs? If that's the case, just buy the larger pack using the BDJ coupon; as soon as that goes through I'll give you a full refund for your original single license purchase.

Benjamin User Well, thank you for your offer. I think I'll make a good use of the single license. I thought I'd need multiple computer licenses but it doesn't work on iMac, and I just have one PC (at least 3 if I count those I use at school and office).

I suppose you'll offer a future discount on BitsDuJour. If you do, I'll consider buying multiple licenses if I ever need an additional one.

If you realize PTFB Pro 6, will I be able to upgrade using my actual license, or are major upgrades not included in the deal?

BTW, do you offer lifetime discount for student? If you do, I'll be willing to buy one and review your product in English, Japanese and French. I could even translate your program in one of these languages if you ever need translation. At least I could be proofreading these languages (most of the company forget to proofread translation made by an individual in exchange for a free license...)

Guy Good Is Version 6 going to be released fairly soon? It doesn't look like the upgrade would be free if it was released quickly.

Susan Westlake Major upgrades (as in 5.x to 6.x) are either free (if you bought reasonably close to the release date) or heavily discounted. Minor upgrades are always free. Version 6 isn't something we've thought about - there are still quite a few things that we're looking to add to version 5 over the next year or so. If you look at the release history on our site you''ll see that we don't put out major (paid) upgrades all that often (e.g. six years between v5 and v6) but minor upgrades are much more frequent, and often driven by user suggestions.

We don't actually have lifetime student discount, but it's something we'll consider. We have provided discounts to academic orders on request however.

Regarding translation, I think if we added support for another language the first on the list would probably be German; we have quite a few German customers and it must be pain always seeing things in UK English.

No, it's completely self-contained: no java, and no .net either.

wts Hi Susan. Can ptfbpro be registered on an XP VM that doesn't have internet access? Can ptfbpro work with a DOS program running under Cmd? Thanks!
Jul 29 at 8:34am Copy Link
0
Susan Westlake Hi wts,

Yes to the XP VM, and yes to the DOS program, although PTFB Pro may not be able to "see" much of the window in question so target identification could be an issue. There are ways to get round that:

1) Use the "title" command in the cmd window prior to running the dos program to give it a unique name

2) You may be able to use the visual trigger to help with identification too.

Adam Bridge This deal should have been extended - many of us are busy over the weekends and don't always get onto the PC then. I note already 54 people want this deal. Revenue and customers potentially lost in my opinion. In addition it would be great if the Company posted some videos of what the program can do on it's website - textual information on software like this can be hard going to wade through and a video with examples would clarify that so much easier for customers.

Susan Westlake Hi Adam, that's a great idea about the videos. Regarding extension of the deal, it was always set for 48 hrs but watch this space - I'm just checking with BDJ on this.
