Play iim file on wamps server in background

Post by johanvena » Thu May 05, 2022 12:25 pm

Setup:-
Windows 10 Home x64 build 19044
Wamp server Apachi 2.4.51
iMacro professional 2021

Need help to achieve following:-
Pass variable from client side (web site) via url:- https://ipaddress/www/imacro/runimacro. ... name=lname to runimacro.php on my local WAMP server

Then in runimacro.php get the values into a variable

Code: Select all

........
$fname=name;
$lname=surname;
.........
Now I want to run my iim file using the variables in silent mode so that client won't see the play of the script

How can I achieve this?

Hi johanvena,

Is it your intention to run iMacros on your server, or do you want iMacros to run on the machine of the user who is accessing your server?

If you want to run iMacros on your server, then by default it will not be visible to web clients.

However, if you are running iMacros on the client machine, making it invisible is currently not possible because -silent and -tray modes are not yet implemented in iMacros 2021.

Typically, you should be using the iMacros scripting interface included with the Enterprise Edition for scripting iMacros from .php and other scripting/programming languages. But since you mentioned you only have the Professional Edition, the only option available to you is using the iMacros.exe command-line interface. To pass variables to a macro using the command-line interface, you need to specify the -variables switch:
