Today I have got an application named WinParrot which will help you to record and control any program on Windows. The software is a freeware and it is tested to work on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The application will help you to automate your recurring tasks. The software will also help you to load your data into the applications like Internet Explorer, SAP, Oracle etc. using the data from the Excel sheet. The application can also be used to test the robustness of the application by simulating it with the various users. The software can also be used to conduct a demonstration or training for an application by slowing the speed of play. The application can be used schedule the execution of tasks and macros.
The software doesn’t require any installation or any administration rights to run. The tool has a very simple language so that you can insert visual checkpoints, loops, data or conditions from the Excel Spreadsheets. The application is optimized to use least possible memory and CPU frequency. The application will always verify its signature. You will get an alert in case there is an attempt of an intrusion or if the software gets corrupted .
This is the window which will open to verify the signature of the software.
This is the first window that will open when you will run the software for the first time after downloading and installing it. The software doesn’t require installation and will run directly from the exe file which you will get after extracting the ZIP file.
