Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
The Black Box Recorder. Every
developer wishes there was a way that an end-users could quickly and simply
record a repro for the problem that they’re running into that is unique to their
machine. Windows 7 comes to the rescue! Part of the in-built diagnostic tools
that we use internally to send feedback on the product, the Problem Steps
Recorder provides a simple screen capture tool that enables you to record a
series of actions. Once you hit “record”, it tracks your mouse and keyboard and
captures screenshots with any comments you choose to associate alongside them.
Once you stop recording, it saves the whole thing to a ZIP file, containing an
HTML-based “slide show” of the steps. It’s a really neat little tool and I can’t
wait for it to become ubiquitous on every desktop! The program is called
psr.exe; you can also search for it from Control Panel under
“Record steps to reproduce a problem”.
