I want to automate my frequenly works. Which automation tool is best? Mapkey, Trail File, C++ or VBA. Mapkey is not enough. It is just repeat mouse and weyboard actions. There is no "if then else", loop, user interface. Trail files is same mapkey. C++ is difficult language. I am mechanical engineer, not software engineer. I thing VBA is best, but it works external to Pro/E, not like Excel Macros. Do you share your experience to me? Is VBA good or not? I write a program with Visual Basic and debug this. And I when I open Pro/E, it must run. Not manuel, automaticly run with Pro/E. It is posible. Thanks...! This thread is inactive and closed by the PTC Community Management Team.
