Dear experts,

What is the best way to create a macro to automate some processes in some windows application, I saw some applications like  Quick Macro, it seems good, but I need your experience because it is going to be a sensitive application.

Is it possible to be implemented as .exe or a .dll ?  because Quick Macro doesnt, you have to have it in the PC to run the macro


Thansk for help

Look at AutoIT 3 -- I use it for such tasks, but it's more scripting than it is Macro generation.

You can find it here:
http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/

Your AutoIT (au3) scripts can be compiled into EXE's for free, and you can even assign ICO files to them to give them a custom icon.

Comes with some great examples, and there's plenty of support for it on the web.  It's come a long way, I've been using it since it's first public Version 2 release a few years back.
