Editors' Review

+

This is a very handy freeware macro maker that suffers from an unfortunate error. MacroMaker's complex interface really isn't that difficult to master. It's logically designed and included most options intermediate to advanced users would want in a macro editor. This isn't a program for the novice user, as there isn't extreme error checking of constructed macros.

MacroMaker expects some application knowledge and rewards users with a flexible macro construction interface. Most users will find themselves easily building complicated macros right from the start. Adding commands is a mere matter of clicking buttons or using well-labeled pull-down menus. You can easily set your macro to invoke by hot key, word or phrase, or on a user-selected schedule. We wish the Recording function was as robust. The program does make it easy to record your keyboard presses and mouse movements. You can simply record both, or even select one or the other. However, our testers suffered a program-stopping error every time they tried editing a saved recorded macro.

Though we wouldn't recommend the recording feature, the rest of MacroMaker is a robust and flexible macro creator. Experienced users looking for a simple, freeware macro tool should definitely give this program a test.

"Install problems?"

December 18, 2009  |  By DAnielZa

 |  Version: MacroMaker 2.0.0.4

Pros

You need to install Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86). After that the program will run without a problem.
the makers website also has a zip file available with a setup executable. that might solve problems with the .msi installer.

Cons

- Have not tried the program yet.
- Difficult to install

Summary

Just to give a quick tumbs up. Will try the program and will rewrite this review.
