"Fairly Good Program.."

July 01, 2011  |  By The_Boss-1-0-1

 |  Version: Workspace Macro Pro Automation Edition 6.5.4

Pros

-> Does what it claims.
-> Very good compared to the many others I've used.
-> Excellent, easy-to-use interface.
-> Features are outstanding!
-> Relatively small size.. considering it's capabilities
-> Quick Installation

Cons

-> Not free.
-> Trial is too short.
-> Too expensive to buy.
-> Hard to pirate!

Summary

Program is good all-around... but 40 bucks is to steep a price for the simple tasks I want it for. Even sadder.. it's extremely hard to pirate =7.
If you are a user looking for advanced long term automated tasks carried out on your computer this.. my just be that good investment..

"Not a free upgrade from 6.5.3"

March 09, 2011  |  By Lloved

 |  Version: Workspace Macro Pro Automation Edition 6.5.4

Pros

When it works properly, it can save you a lot of effort.

Cons

It occasionally tends to get lost, and you have no idea what it's doing.

Summary

My 6.5.3 registration key doesn't won't work for 6.5.4. Their tech support says this is not a free upgrade. Who charges for a minor version release?

"worthless ."

March 07, 2011  |  By dmil4802

 |  Version: Workspace Macro Pro Automation Edition 6.5.4

Pros

You can record your mouse moving and clicking

Cons

Bugs in the trial version (version 6.5.4) interfere with and disable the actual *automation*, which is the entire point of the product.

Summary

You are told the trial version will work for 40 uses before you must purchase or delete it. Fair enough. It records the macros (mouse moving and clicking), and you can play them back to fix any errors (which occur, for example, when the program is supposed to click on a window, but suddenly "thinks" that's the wrong window.. so you have to disable the artificial unintelligence and try again). Finally it all seems to be working right- Then you schedule the automation for a certain date/time, and the program suddenly "needs" to know your windows password, insisting macros can never function without it (really? then how did you just play the thing back for me to check for errors?)... whatever, since this is important, we indulge the program. It then schedules the task, and we walk away, trusting it to automate the necessary procedures.

Well think again. When your macro is set to automatically run, what should happen but the stupid nag screen pops up, requiring you to click "Try It!" before it does your automation. But of course, you aren't THERE to click through the nag screen, and so your procedure does not even start until you come back hours later, and click "Try It!"... ooops, too late.

Eight thumbs down.
