What is VT_BSTR and how to disable it?

Hi!

I'm using iMacro Scripting Edition with Java to automate a process of web-extraction, and I wondered why the default output keeps printing VT_BSTR (mane times) when my program ends... Is there any way of getting rid of it?

Hello,

I can confirm this behaviour, but currently we are not able to tell where these extra lines come from.
If someone encounters the same issue with other programming/scripting languages, please post to this thread. This would help the developers tackle the issue.

Dear Support,

have you found any solution to disable that String 'VT_BSTR'?
I use IMacros Scripting Interface (Version 6.14) with Java and this output String is extreme annoying!

Best wishes,
Toby

Can you tell what component throws this string? Is it the jawin package? Then it might be visible in the jawin sources.
