Hello,

i'm having some problems with this too.

When I run iim.init() with the "False" condition, it should recognize and run macros in the open instance. Instead, it opens a new (but crippled) instance of iMacros that doesn't even load the homepage (nor subsequently run any scripts). The error I get is "Browser was not started. iimInit() failed?"

What should i do ? Any ideas ?

Hi,

I had the same issue but later it worked for me after I changed
a. iimInit() to iimOpen()
b. I added a sleep-time of 5 seconds right after iimOpen() hoping that it generally takes a few seconds for the browser to initiate.

This did the trick for me.
Regards,
MJ

I have the same problem, both with iiminit() and iimopen().

I got this error also with the imacros supplied examples.

Every time returns -1 (iimopen and iiminit).
