    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a very simple macro program. All I need it to do is:

    Launch an application at a certain time
    Send keystrokes to that application at certain times

    That's IT!!!

    Sounds simple, right?

    I think I've downloaded and used somewhere between 6 and 8 freeware programs so far. They're all either buggy, resource hogs, packed with spyware, or some other such nonsense.

    Please, what do you use to accomplish such a simple task??? I'm sick of Googling because I either get sucky freeware programs that don't work or I find mentions of expensive programs that do way more than I need.

    I hadn't until your post. Now I've been running it and it seems to work fine for my needs so far. Hopefully it stays that way and doesn't present me with any odd problems like the other programs I've tried.

    Thanks! That's the second time in a short while you've helped me out here. Looks like I owe you one ;c
