I use a program called OkMap which I use to generate Garmin Custom Map KMZ files from GeoTiffs. Every now and then I need to process a bunch of updated files, last time it was 80.

The task is pretty repetitive and I'd like to automate it. OkMap itself doesn't provide a command line interface so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a some automation / macro software that can record and repeat the repetitive steps against each file within a directory.

The task I want to automate in OkMap can be found under the "Utilities" > "Map tiling / Garmin custom maps" menu item.

The software needs to run on Windows Server 2012 R2.
