Migration problem from working FF macro to bad iMacros Brows

Post by dfinkels » Thu Mar 29, 2007 1:27 pm

I created a macro using the Firefox add-in (VERSION BUILD=5200814 RECORDER=FF). The macro opens a webpage and saves an archive to a drive. I want to run this macro at a specific time of each weekday. I installed the iMacros Browser. I followed the instructions about renameing, copying, and registering the DLLs found in the readme first.txt. Everything works fine so far. I copied my Firefox recorded macro (found in C:\Documents and Settings\dfinkelstein\Application Data\iMacros\Macros) to the iMacros.exe macro folder (C:\Program Files\iMacros\Macros\). When I try to run my firefox macro in the iMacros Browser, I get a quick "0VERSION BUILD=5220125" and then it ends.

Any ideas? I will paste the working Firefox macro below.

I have some other questions as well:
1 - Can I launch Firefox plug-in recoreded macros with Windows Scripting? It seems like I have to use the iMacros Browser.
2 - Which iMacros version do I need to run a program with Windows Scripting? Scripting? Pro?
3 - Can I use Windows scripting to launch a Firefox macro? (My company blocks Internet Explorer by default, I have to get exceptions for each website)


working FF macro:

VERSION BUILD=5220125

Are there empty lines inside the macro? Does deleting them help?

1) Yes, you can. There is a beta scripting interface that allows for using FF instead of IE or the iMacros browser. Cf. http://forum.iopus.com/viewtopic.php?p=6894

2) To use the Scripting Interface, you need iMacros Scripting Edition

3) Yes. See answer 1 above.


Best,

Hannes
