PowerPro lets you take control of how you use Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. Run commands and configure your system any way you want. It also provides a powerful scripting interface.

How does it work?

In order to make use of the following scripts you have to

  1. install PowerPro;
  2. follow the steps described in the single recipes;


In order to get a plugin working with PowerPro you have to

  1. download the plugin (a good source for plugins is the Plugin Archive on www.pcrei.com)
  2. follow the installing instructions provided by the plugin (mostly it is sufficient to copy the plugin DLL to the plugins subdir in the PowerPro installation directory and copy to plugin INI file to the PowerPro installation directory)

KeyTrap plugin

While PowerPro itself provides the full facilities for keytraps, there is also an plugin for this purpose. The KeyTrap plugin offers a few advantages compared to the native keytrap support of PowerPro (see the document why use keytrap.txt, which is part of the plugin). KeyTrap is part of the Plugin Archive.
