Macro programming problems - Need a program suggestion

DoronronDoronron Registered User regular
I've been googling and testing shareware macro recording and hotkey assignment programs, but they all seem to follow a particular restriction.

Basically, I'd like to assign a double-tap keystroke, say <s+s>, to playback <shift+s>. While every program I've come across can record the <shift+s> keystrokes properly, they won't allow me to assign <s+s> as the hotkey command to activate it. The choices allowed are either a single <s>, or something like <ctrl+s>. Anyone know of a macro/hotkey program that'll allow me to assign the hotkey the way I want?

    AutoHotKey does this. Something like this would work fine:
    if (A_PriorHotKey = "~LCtrl" AND A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 250)
       Run "C:\Program Files\file.exe"

    Search around their forums and there's plenty of examples of people's double-tap scripts.

    Thanks. I'm going to have to sit down and learn how this works. It's pretty complex.

    Just be aware that people type pretty quick. Typing "Google" will certainly trigger g+g and o+o.

    AutoIt is what you need, and much simpler syntax than what was posted above.
