AutomationBox Tools is a suite of automation tools for Windows. Unlike the developer's other application, MouseRobot, AutomationBox Tools lacks a graphical user interface. Instead, it does everything via Windows NT Command Scripts. In other words, everything happens at the command line, and unless specifically programmed to do so, the scripts will not communicate with the user. Let me expand on that.

The suite brings two sample scripts. You have to create the rest on your own, and perhaps some programming skills might be necessary. The most interesting one is the Screenshot sample. When you run the script (by double-clicking it) on Windows, it will display a command line window that gives you some instructions on how to use the script to take screenshots. In this case, you need to click the Window that you want to take a screenshot of and press the Ctrl key on your keyboard. The instructions are there because the developer took the effort of writing them. But you can remove the text, and have a nearly invisible app that does actions for you. If you removed the instructions from this sample, you would only know that it was running when you see the actual screenshot file on the destination folder.

There are four scripts that you can use: abtcapture, abtcontrol, abtplay, abtscrshot. They allow you to do a variety of things. From controlling your computer to taking screenshots, to capturing actions and reproducing them. The options are limitless. However, as you may now understand, the application is not the easiest solution for macro recording.
