Sure, there are programs that purport to let you automate repetitive tasks on your PC. But most of these are extremely limited in scope, and soon you find yourself frustrated with the limitations. Today's discount software promotion, though, takes automation to the next level, offering practical advantages in a package that's powerful and flexible. It's called Quick Macros!

Quick Macros lets you automate tasks on your PC, including program launches, file management, text processing, and custom dialogs. With Quick Macros, you'll enjoy a level of flexibility and customization never before offered by a program of this type - record keystrokes and mouse actions, trigger actions through hotkeys, mouse movement, a scheduler, toolbars, or menus. You can even use Quick Macros to create programs using its API, running them as executable files from within the program, or distributing them to run on computers without Quick Macros.

Tired of performing repetitive administrative processes? Quick Macros can help you with those, as well. Install software, monitor files and processes, backup files, even shutdown, restart, or sleep your computer, automatically. There's even support for conditional execution using variables, functions, classes, error handling and more!

ron r I try to generally keep my windows System Tray as clean as possible.
For Quick Macros I made an exception it's ALWAYS running.

- You can enhance your work experience with the windows OS using QM
- You can create (mini) applications in QM
- hell ... I have seen a few applications on bitsdujour which I think can be made in QM!
- You can be more productive using QM and I am not talking about doing this within windows itself faster and more effectively but als enhance your applications...

I am saying it now and will keep saying it.... Quick Macros has no equal.

NC Buyer I purchased this back in Feb-2013. (ver I cant see from my invoice whether or not the purchase was lifetime upgrades. Do I need to purchase this to upgrade to the latest version or do I just download and install over it? Thanks!

Dan Amiel Excellent program no doubt, i love it. Nonetheless, learning curve for people without coding experience is steep and the code readability is not always optimal.
I would recommend the author to produce a series (10-20 videos) for the absolute beginner so they know where to start.

Steven Avery As mentioned by one person above, a few clear videos showing practical uses would be very helpful. With sound. Working through the creation and use of a macro.

As I simply do not have the time to spend trying to get the "feel" of a macro/language without a couple of clear vids.

The big question for me is .. what will I accomplish? And at what effort?

ron r I am working on a set of video-tutorials in my free time.
This is a hobby project so I can not give an exact time limit when it will be released. I have been working on it this year on and off.

The target audience is the beginner or someone who has worked with QM for a while but does not have the basic understanding of programming, customizing QM to own needs, dialogs,...

Sorry, it's difficult to specify the current knowledge level of the QM user for this tutorial to be still effective. I hope to start releasing the tutorials within the 4 weeks but it might as well be months (somewhere next year).

I have a lot of personal issues regarding which I must address which makes a release an exact specification of the release unsure.
But I as a humble user who does not have a high enough knowledge about QM still acknowledge that it's complexity is it's only Achilles-heel. Again I as a humble semi-intermediate user of QM (at best) is trying to address this.

If the tutorials will be released (and for now it looks that it will be) then it will be a +/- 26 part tutorial each of 4 to 15+ minutes (depending on subject). It is not voice narrated but text annotated. Target level: complete beginner BUT any high level programming experience or scripting in other languages will help you a lot. The reason I will release it in parts is that the uploading videos longer then 30 minutes from my machine to youtube ends up in failure, smaller videos upload without problems.

That's it, I hope that I didn't raise to high expectations BUT I also hope that users will not loose interest in this application. It has a lot to offer.... in other words... This rabbit hole goes deep... (in a good way!)

Dan Amiel Good news ron ;-)

Although normally this should be Author's task, not yours.
I wonder why they didn't bring anything out up to now.

ron r I think it's because QM is designed and owned by one person.
That same person must maintain and offer support, add to this the complexity of this application and then it almost becomes impossible to find the time to create a video series for beginners.

In all fairness, his advice and support on the forums is awesome and he keeps the license price to a fair one time payment only.
And license agreement is very fair.
I can not blame him for not having a basic video tutorial series.
The problem with a basic set of tutorials is that it is still huge undertaking.

But I hope to tackle this issue as soon as humanly possible.

I normally would not do this, but because this application is so awesome at what it does and the forum support and price/license and the way he helped me so much, I had to try to give something back (not only to the author but mostly for anyone who want's to take computing to a next level).

Those are big words I stated, I hope I can back them up with actual content.
(time will tell).
