Macro Recorder, Help-Desk, ASP.NET Forum - Jitbit Software.

Real good if you repeatedly type alot for text (though Im looking for a free one!!)

Works in windows 7 x64 RC 7201

I would take a look here:
Software - DonationCoder.com
and here:
Gizmo's Freeware Reviews | Gizmo's Freeware

The donation coder stuff has a doodad to make a donation and enter a key in some of the stuff but you can get a 6 months key for most stuff on that site for free. I think if you give any donation you can get a "universal key" but check the site for details.

Autohotkey works just fine - it's both brilliant and free.

Most of the programmers at donation coder use AHK. But they may write the program for you and post the source, if it's a simple app.

I think Skrommel makes it a point of providing source code with his downloads. You can modify to suit your own preferences.

AutoIt3 is also good. Doesn't have as much utility with mouse macros maybe as AHK but is has a much cleaner syntax and scoping that's more like a compiled language. They both have their uses.
