Running multiple macro-apps simultaneously in the same OS

I have a good little app called Mouse and Key Recorder
for macro related tasks.

For multiple simultaneous instances the problem seems
to be that no one made up virtual mouse pointers yet,
even with advanced virtual desktop apps there's always
only one mouse pointer available.

Currently I run vmware to have real independent desktops,
but I still hope someone made up something more effectiv.

Yes, I think cpnmouse is the closest solution available to
my problem.

Unfortunatly a few people reported it as buggy and the
setup seems to require some tweaking. And a multiple
virtual desktop environment might be even trickier.

So I tried the macro on 10 alternating windows and it
is fast enough for me. It's not exactly simultaneous but
it is the easiest solution for now.
