I am reviewing the IM for my company. The one thing they want is to set up a button on the Desktop to run a Macro from any particular web site. Is there a specific code to set up a batch file to run the macro that will grab the URL address from the running IE?

Right now in the macro code, I have the following line:
to grab the URL address. But when I run my test batch file from the desktop it does not grab the current URL that the IE is at. It will run the IM and the first site it retains is the default site to iOpus. I am looking ways to run this batch file to be able to grab the URL from the IE without running the IM and making sure that it is at a particular web page.

Any Suggestions?

This feature will be available in IIM V5.0 (but it is not in the current beta yet).
