Macro Scheduler 8.0 for Windows Just Released

MJT Net has released version 8.0 of Macro Scheduler, its popular Windows automation solution for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP.

Macro Scheduler lets you create macros to control your Windows applications, automate software and web processes, and assign tasks to scheduled events, desktop shortcuts or hotkeys. With Macro Scheduler, you can perform complex tasks with a single mouse click, or schedule your computer to perform unattended tasks overnight or any time you're not present.

Version 8.0 of Macro Scheduler offers many new enhancements over the previous version. The software can now schedule tasks to take place even when Windows is logged out, and the new AutoLogon technology can automatically log into Windows or unlock the workstation, run the automation routine, and then log out again.

The new WebRecorder add-on lets you script web applications and record internet macros in minutes. No programming skills are required to make robust internet macros to automate web pages, web sites, intranet pages and other browser based applications.

Power users will also appreciate the ability to compile scripts into standalone EXE files which can be run independently on any Windows PC, and an integrated script debugger aids the creation of complex macros. MacroScript, the Macro Scheduler script language, also supports complex expressions, advanced conditional statements, subroutines and custom dialogs.

The graphical WYSIWYG Dialog Designer makes it easy to create user interfaces for your scripts and executables. Macro Scheduler scripts can also include Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition code, combining the power and ease of use of the Macro Scheduler script engine (MacroScript) with the popular syntax of VBScript, and allowing increased flexibility and advanced OLE/ActiveX automation.

Macro Scheduler saves you time and solves problems by allowing you to create scripts or record macros to automate any task. More than 200 script commands and standard programming constructs include the ability to send keystrokes and mouse events to other applications, wait for windows to open and close, make a particular window active, perform internet tasks, run programs and commands, execute files, read from and write to files, copy, move and delete files and more.

For complete ease of use, you can record macros, and a feature unique to Macro Scheduler means recorded macros are converted to efficient, reliable scripts that can be edited and modified later. Recorded macros can even be compiled into standalone applications that can be run on any Windows system.

From running regular disk maintenance to generating financial reports, controlling file transfers and downloading e-mail, Macro Scheduler allows your computer to carry on working while you're not there.

MacroScript based technology is also available for enterprise level SQA and change management through MJT Net Ltd's alliance with The iConsortium, Inc. (www.theiconsortium.com). This service and expertise allows for integrated script automations, cross-application and cross-platform functional or performance testing, and centralized Web based controls. This technology partnership will provide customers with enterprise level experience and workflow management, while maintaining the strength and simplicity for which Macro Scheduler is known.
