Editors' Review

+
We're still trying to figure out if there's anything Macro Express can't do. It can automate typing a phrase, clicking an interface button, ejecting the CD-ROM, dialing a modem, pinging a site, and changing the desktop wallpaper. It can activate shortcuts with hot keys, text aliases, mouse movements, and pop-up menus. Neophytes get a great help file and wizards for just about everything. Power users can edit scripts manually and link macros with conditionals and variables. You can spend hours at play in the fields of the options menu. True, Macro Express takes up a considerable amount of system memory (9MB), and its forbidding interface keeps it (by a hair) from our highest recommendation. But its usability and mind-boggling feature set make it a superb choice for common users and IT professionals.

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! Security issue."

March 03, 2012  |  By rwtiedemann

Pros

You have a serious security issue with this down load. I downloaded this and almost immediately someone took over my computer. I had to do a system restore. Since I restored and removed this program I have had no further intrusions.

"Corporate Terrorism"

June 11, 2011  |  By Brokebacka

 |  Version: Macro Express 3.8a

Pros

*Relatively easy to use
*Works in many games

Cons

*Company unethically shuts down programs (full screen games in particular) that you use Macro Express as soon as it expires.
*Free and cheaper alternatives available such as AutoHotKey

Summary

Company is completely disreputable in how it shuts down your programs/full screen software you are using Macro Express in as soon as it expires, crashing such software unless you buy it. Made me lose valuable data with this terrorist act. I recommend avoiding this software and choosing similar software from more ethical companies than this one.

"Macro Express is Great"

November 08, 2010  |  By pbuchsbaum

 |  Version: Macro Express 3.8a

Pros

* It's reliable
* Can be used like a robot
* Productivity grows a lot
* It's very easy to learn

Cons

* Some softwares (Word, etc.) demand fine tuning (delay between keys, etc.) in order to works right. But it's a general problem in automation programs

Summary

One of my top 5 sharewares. It helps to save my life. I've used happy for years.

"BEST MACRO PROGRAM IN ITS CLASS, HANDS DOWN, BAR NONE."

February 27, 2010  |  By magenta33

 |  Version: Macro Express 3.8

Pros

Huge command and function set, highly flexible, quick and easy script creation or capturing, superb contextual help, no bugginess. Combines power with ease like nothing else. This program is the end of the macro rainbow :-)

Cons

So far I've found only one capability lacking - the ability to enable / disable the mouse. Because this is inconsequential to me, the program still gets 5 stars.

"Great macro software"

June 26, 2007  |  By u1bd2005

 |  Version: Macro Express 3 3.5e build 1

Pros

This program is great, its useful as an auto typer and is easy to speed up the typing for when you want to post the same message several times.

Both the capture macro and script editor are easy to use.

Cons

its only a 30 day demo, but theres a way to get around it, if you wish to use it after the demo has expired then just set your computers date a day or two before the trial expired, you will then be able to use it again, then simply set the date back once you've finished using it.
