WinParrot - basic automation

#1 Post by webfork » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:34 pm

Its a no-install program without any settings and with strong reviews.

Tested v. 2.0.1. Two problems:

1. Writes a lot of garbage to the registry:

* Registers .WPR files
* HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.Document
* Various HKU entries

2. Doesn't actually seem to work on my WinXP SP3 system. I really need a program like this, but unfortunately it couldn't do even a basic file open/save process so I'm going to leave this alone.

So this is still in development with an update just under a year ago. Now at v2.1.3.7 (13/10/2021).

Status: Untested. As I couldn't find anything about settings, registry, or portability on the website, I have put testing the latest version on hold.
