There is a market out there for this kind of products. Some of them even boast a 'macro language' for automating the control of external programs. These languages can't compare to TC's rich functionality. On the other hand ACTIVATE and KEYSTACK don't quite cover the needs of admins managing a lot of legacy software. I suspect that building recording and playback functionality into TC is a lot easier than trying to build TC's functionality into existing macro recorders. I feel that JP-software could significantly expand their market by adding this functionality. From the perspective of prospects currently using macro recorders it would seem like buying two products in one. Both freeing them from the limitations of their current tool and provinding them with a rich platform to develop new solutions on. Dirk Jan Spits.
