Note: This is the last freeware version of what is now a payware product.

RtvReco doesn't even exist anymore. gbj and Shodan are probably spammers who were trying to push the software.

PTFB does exactly what I need; it pushes the freakin button. It's great for one off tasks that have an unexpected error interruption.

When I need something more complex (like automating installers), I use AutoIt, which is also freeware.

It doesn't actually help how much better the other product is as this is a "freeware" listing. The name "The Portable Freeware Collection" does not indicate the use of payware does it?

i also use rtvreco and like it much. i agree it is far better than this one. well worth the 'payware' price. it will do much more and find more windows than ptfb will and give user more choices what to do when it recognizes a window...

"better" is relative
Just because it's payware, it's one category (the most important and first I care) less than freeware, regardless of features.

It's 'ok', especially considering that it's free, but there are FAR better utilities of this sort out there. I have been using RtvReco for a number of years now, and PTFB cannot compare with it in any way. No, it is not free, but for $15, or so, it is a fantastic tool and I would not be without it.
