Macro utility



  • i have made several scripts done in a simple macro utility that back up databases on my pc, just wanted to know if you would introduce macro ability yourself to pa. so we can use something different to the backup script. Plus use other functions that pa does not use like one encrypting files with password by one button for example . justy an idea

    I personally Like this idea! and thought about this prior. I am a Level 4 Specialist in IT Development and write allot of VBA Scripting within Access and Excel to automate tasks to simplify and decrease time plus user error.

    Having an ability in PA to say on a Monday remind you to access your FTP Server using Profile 2 etc then on pressing yes or no it then runs a set of proceses normally you would have to in sync with the backup tool.

    Question is what code could be used. taking into consideration not everyone is clued up on programing even simple stuff like vba.



  • do you know this one? http://www.autoitscript.com/



  • moist! very moist!



  • personally like that program though would prefwer powerarchiver to give total support to its own basic like macro program that would mean i would not have to create my own scripts and use the commandline version. If programs like irfanview can do it from the main program itself why can’t pa. A simple macro utility could meanthat i can program pa to say open a program export a file that i need and backup just that file. very usefull if you have limited space on a disk and really need to backup a file, and don’t want to lose the most important data on the program.

    A macro utility would be better than plugins as it can open up a new way of creating plugins which is far better than the way we do so at present, or should i say noone has as no one has made a plugin specific to pa to date. They all see to use total commander plugins
