Macro Program - No Install

Hi everyone,

I need to find a program that will allow me to program and execute very simple keyboard macros. But, I need this to use on my work PC which I can not install any software on.

So, do you know of any macro program I can use to do this that is a standalone app (No install) to runs on a PC?

Thanks for any help!

Portable Version?

In reply to: No.

So there is not anything that can even run as a portable app?

Have you found such?

In reply to: Portable Version?

Since I never found such I offered the hardware solution.

Why wouldn't that work?

It would, but I work on a laptop and not always at my desk. Its fine when I am there, but when I am away, it is not really practical to carry around a full size keyboard.

Thanks for the suggestion nonetheless.

Time to talk to the boss.

However you may have a paid by the hour job. What incentive is there to get it done faster?

Job is salaried.

The faster I can get certain tasks done, the less time I spend late at the office and working at home.

Also, just to automate some very repetitive tasks I have to do from time to time.

batch files and scripts. Can be used very well for (some) repeating tasks. As long as you don't detail what those tasks are nobody can tell.

and your boss presses hard enough, the IT dept might allow a license.

It's all about money. If he can prove you save 1 hour of work a day, or make 5% less errors, it saves the company a certain amounts of $$. And the higher the ROI, the bigger the chance of it being allowed by someone these days.
