How to play a loop on iMacros browser with VBS?

Post by Gnr993 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 3:32 pm

When I run my scrips for a long period of time, I get memory leak and the software crashes.
Therefore, I want to use VBS to open and close the iMacros browser to prevent memory leak.
I know that the script should look like this:

Code: Select all

Set iim1= CreateObject ("imacros")
    iret = iim1.iimOpen()
    iret = iim1.iimPlay("‏‏name of the file.iim")
    iret = iim1.iimClose()
But it opens the software only for 1 loop.
I need it to play 1 loop, close the software, and then play the next.

I use visual basic (vba) and run loops with iMacros all of the time. I'm assuming that your file name changes each time. The code I use would look something like this

Code: Select all

do until (some condition)

    Set iim1= CreateObject ("imacros")
    iret = iim1.iimOpen()
    iret = iim1.iimPlay(varFileName)
    iret = iim1.iimClose()

    varFileName = ""

    (go get new file name)

Hope this helps........
