Problem running IE11 parallel with iimrunner

Post by RenSch » Mon Oct 13, 2014 6:21 am

Hopefully someone can solve this puzzle, probably I overlook something simple.

I'm trying to run IE11 parallel with iimrunner but I can't run more than one browser at the time.

launching my runtest.php script launches the IE11 browser through iimrunner and executes everything fine

launching 2x (from second browser tab) my runtest.php script launches the IE11 browser through iimrunner but the second runtest.php page doesn't start a second IE11 browser but waits till the first browser has finished it's task, and then launches a new browser.

The only way I managed to run two browsers at the same time is by creating another .php page and then execute the same script (copying php code from runtest.php and created another page runtest2.php)

The weird thing is: The Running Browser Count remains 0

so all with all: How do I run multiple IE11 browsers through iimrunner at the same time from a single php page :?:



runtest.php:
---------------------------------------------------
<?php
$iim1 = new COM("imacros");

$s = $iim1->iimOpen("-runner -ie_ext -iePrivate");

$s = $iim1->iimPlay("#check_url_follow.iim");
echo "iimplay=";
echo $s;

$s = $iim1->iimPlay("#check_url_follow.iim");
echo "iimplay=";
echo $s;

$s = $iim1->iimPlay("#check_url_follow.iim");
echo "iimplay=";
echo $s;

$s = $iim1->iimClose();
?>



iimrunner.xml
---------------------------------------------------
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<configuration>
<appSettings>
<add key='MaxNumberOfInstances' value='5'/>
<add key='LogName' value=''/>
<add key='LogLevel' value='INFO'/>
</appSettings>
</configuration>



WAMP running apache 2.4.9 & PHP 5.5.12

bumb. can anyone share some light on how to run multiple IE 11 browsers at the same time from my .php script?
(for example 10 users visit runtest.php page at the same time, and imacro opens 10 browsers)

Sorry, I can't help you, I've never used iimRunner... (nor iMacros with PHP...)

But it is part of the iMacros Professional Edition, you must be entitled to open a Ticket with TechSupport, they will be much more reactive than on the Forum where they don't often come... (And post the Answer from TechSupport back to this Thread...)
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

Thanks for your reply. I'm running the demo version and hoped finding the answer on the official forum. I'll try opening a ticket with TechSupport - hopefully they can help me out :D

@RenSch

I would appreciate the solution, if any, be added to the thread. :D
I am considering something same, and a heads up would be very helpful. :!:

FWIW, maybe off topic (sorry) : I saw a note that VBS was now deprecated on IE11. :x :shock:

Thanks much,
Jonny
