What are people saying about iMacros

Stefan Hauber Unfortunately the higher versions of your software are - even with a 50% discount - out of reach for me.

But the PowerSurfer isn't, so I have some questions about it:

What's the big differences between the free IE-integration and the PowerSurfer-version, i.e. what can I do with the PowerSurfer edition, what I can't do with the free one?

If I see it right, I have to use your script-commands, if I want to use iMacro. And because there are no command-lines calls and it is not possible to call macros from other macros directly (- FAQ) I have to write one big macro instead smaller ones, which are called by other ones. Right?

As a first project I would like to realize the following project:: A webpage contains some links to pages, which contain links to picture and video-files which, if they match certain properties (e.g. a certain minumum-size) I want iMacro to automatically download and save under increasing-indexed names, e..g. 01_01.jpg, 01_02.jpg for all links coming from the 1st link of the main-page, 02_... from 2nd link, etc.

Would such a project be possible to realize with the PowerSurfer version? There would be the need of a loop, conditional-testing, ... Or would I need the scripting version to embed the iMacro-code into a conventional programming language?

Thank's a lot...

Ipswitch Hi Stefan,

If your automation projects needs "only" loops, then the Power Surfer Edition is sufficient. You can use the {{!LOOP}} variable to create changing file names (like 01.jpg, 02.jpg or similar).

However, if you need if/then decisions then the iMacros Scripting Edition is your best choice. Here you have the full power of a real programming or scripting language of your choice (VBS, VB.NET, C#,...).

The commercial iMacros versions (as offered on Bits Du Jour) have unique features that are not available in any free version:

(1) Free, unlimited tech support with guaranteed response times
(2) Support for automating Flash, Silverlight and Java applets
(3) Image Recognition - iMacros can "see" web page elements via computer vision!
(4) AJAX Drag & Drop, AJAX Sliders support via DirectScreen Technology
(5) PRO and Scripting Edition: Command line interface e. g. for use with a task scheduler
(6) PRO and Scripting Edition: Various Web Scraping Wizards, Image Recognition Wizard
(7) Scripting Edition: A programming interface (API) that lets you control the iMacros Browser, IE, Firefox and Google Chrome from any Windows programming or scripting language.

If you are still unsure what edition to purchase: If you originally ordered one edition of our software and wish to upgrade to another edition, the upgrade is only the difference in price! Simply email with your license key when you want to upgrade.

Kevin Houser Will a bundle with the unlimited player be available with the BDJ discount? I'd like to add that to my purchase of the Scripting edition purchased through BDJ.
Nov 4 2010 at 7:10pm Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Kevin,

If you purchase the iMacros *Scripting Edition* here at BDJ *today*, you can email to add the Unlimited Player license also add the BDJ discount (= $100 upgrade). This gives you the:

iMacros Enterprise Bundle 1 (regular US$ 699.00)
 One iMacros Scripting Edition License
 Unlimited Users iMacros Player License
 Silver Level Support included

at the BDJ discount price!

Here is some information for all readers who do not know what the Player license is:

The player license allows you to ship macros, scripts and programs based on iMacros along with a copy of iMacros itself to your users for a very low cost. Technically speaking this means that if iMacros is unlocked with the player license key your users have all the features of the SCRIPTING EDITION available except the ability to record new macros.

The Unlimited User Player license package allows an *unlimited* number of users and installations of the iMacros Player. This includes the public distribution of your solution without royalty payment.

For more information about the iMacros Player and a screenshot please see

Richard Andersen Hi,

1. As for image recognition, will the program recognize images (buttons) that will change their position randomly/unpredictably on a particular page from day to day?

2. Which types of databases other than Access are compatible with the program (e.g. via C#)?
Nov 5 2010 at 4:14am Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Richard,

Thanks for the interesting questions.

(1) Our image recognition feature uses real computer vision algorithms, so it finds images (= buttons, text, ...) that change their position randomly/unpredictably. It will even tolerate size changes of a button within some limits (+/- 10%). A typical use case for our image recogntion this is automating/testing Flash games/Flash applets or complex websites with AJAX.

Also, changes in screen resolution (e. g. recording on one PC and replaying on another) are no problem,

For more details please see

(2) The Scripting Interface of the iMacros Scripting Edition is designed as a Component Object Model (COM) object and allows the user to remote control (script) the iMacros Browser, Internet Explorer and Firefox web browser from any Windows programming or scripting language. This means you can use ANY database that runs on Windows e. g. via C#. So from Access to Oracle, everything can be used ;)

For more details please see

iOpus Software GmbH - Nov 5 2010 at 4:42am Copy Link
Tom , iOpus Hi Richard,

1. Yes, IR works by scanning the whole page for the image.

2. Any database that you can program to in your programming/scripting language is supported. iMacros itself does not write directly to the database. You provide the database access calls in your code and make interface calls to iMacros for setting and retrieving values.

TAPTRONIC re: Kevin Houser, what does the unlimited player offer the user? In other words, an example of what I would use it for?
Nov 5 2010 at 7:09am Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Anthony,

In companies/teams there are often 2-3 script developers that create the macros (e. g. form filling in an insurance company or call center, web testing scripts in a web development company,...) and then many users that "only" run the macros/scripts. They would use the player license.

Other users create (and sometimes sell) custom macros e. g. for BPO websites (real estate) and then distribute the player along with their macros.

Michael R. Bought the PowerSurfer-version today...

The link given after the buy installs - beside the IE extention - a standalone iMacro-program and starts it automatically after the installation. Unfortunately it can't be unlocked with the provided key, because - as it seems you need a higher (business-)version to use it. So why is it installed at all? (Probably after the first 30days in the trial-mode starting by now there is no more chance to test it again on the same computer, is it?)

After having created a macro, with the PowerSurfer-edition is it possible to create a desktop-icon, which - when clicked on it - automatically calls IE and executes it, perhaps with a given parameter? And if yes, how is this done?
Nov 5 2010 at 1:12pm Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Michael,

You raised a good point here. The standalone iMacros Browser is not required for the Power Surfer Edition to work. But on the other hand , it does not take much space either. You are right that the iMacros Browser trial version will expire in 30 days. But if you want to re-test it at a later point, simply contact for a 30-day trial extension key.

iOpus Software GmbH - Nov 5 2010 at 1:19pm Copy Link
Michael R. Hello Mathias,

thanks for your very quick answer of my first question.

But please do not oversee my second one,. (Perhaps you are still working on it...).

In the meantime I have a third one: I tried to create a macro which should automatically log in into an internet-email-provider (hushmail). This login-in procedure needs some edit-field-fill-ins on different forms (email-address and later the password) and some mouse-clicks. First I tried it with the IE-Plugin of iMacros. Playing the macro failed. It did not log in. Than I tried to create the macro with this 30-day trial-version. This macro-creation worked fine. Having created the macro with the iMacro-Browser I could also use it in the IE-Plugin and it worked there too. Being curious, I compared these two macros and found significant differences in the last lines of the macros. The last lines of the one which playbacks correctly were
; the equivalent line - there was just a single one - of the not working one was
URL GOTO=https://mailserver1.hushm.../index.php
(real passphrase content replaced here by '...'). This is strange, isn't it? Shouldn't both versions create the very same macro, as long as the version is the same (both: VERSION BUILD=7050969)?

Nov 5 2010 at 2:32pm Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Michael,

Sorry, I overlooked the second question: iMacros for IE can not create a desktop icon that is linked to a macro. But that feature is already on our todo list ;)

With the PRO and Scripting Edition you can use the command line interface to create a shortcut that starts a macro directly.

The 3rd question is a bit too complex to answer it within this feedback box. We will have to get some more information about it (e. g. can you please post the complete macro that leads to the problem).

I suggest that you re-post the question in our public user forum at

This forum is monitored by active iMacros users _and_ our tech support. Every user benefits from the questions and answers provided in the forum, that is why we would ask you to post the question at first if a public forum is appropriate for your question.

For sale at BitsDuJour are the iMacros Business Editions, see

Sep 20 2011 at 11:18pm Copy Link
Ipswitch iMacros can replace Roboform (It does on my PC!).

The advantage of iMacros is that it can not only automate the login itself, but also all the clicks and form filling afterwards, e. g. navigating to a certain page and automatically generating a report.

Robert Bull If I read your comparison matrix correctly, the only versions that support Firefox are the free edition, and the top-level $499 (at full price, $250 with offer) Scripting Edition. If I only use Firefox, is there any point in purchasing the $49.95 Power Surfer edition that's the lead one featured in this Bits du Jour offer? I realise the discount applies to all versions, but $0.0 to $250 is a big difference. Or even $0.0 to $50 with offer for the Pro edition.
Sep 21 2011 at 6:35am Copy Link
Ipswitch The Power Surfer Edition will help you to automate sites that use Ajax (e. g. Flickr), Flash (e. g. Youtube), Silverlight or similar Rich Media (RIA) technology.

The Scripting Edition will be useful for you if you want to completely automate ("script") some web tasks, e. g. completely automate the up- and downloading of data, automate data extraction (web scraping) or web testing.

In any case, your purchase comes with a 90-day money back guarantee, so you are welcome to purchase iMacros on Friday, and return it later for a complete refund should you not need it. But I am confident that you will like the additional features ;-)
iOpus Software GmbH - Sep 21 2011 at 1:22pm Copy Link
Brian H Hi- thanks so much for getting back to me regarding my question for using "Power Surfer edition" as Roboform replacement. To follow-up on Robert's previous question though, I do use IE and Firefox. I understand that Power Surfer edition can replace Roboform for IE use, but it looks like it won't be able to replace Roboform functions in Firefox, is this correct? Or, can the free "iMacors add-on for Firefox" replace Roboform in Firefox? I'm just a bit confused and need some clarification.

I have to add that, as a consumer, I wish there was a version of your program available that is in-between "Power Surfer edition" and "Scripting edition" that would have full Firefox support and at a much lower price-point than the "Scripting edition", which might be a more robust product than I actually need. The $49.95 jump to $499 just seems really huge to me.

Thanks again for doing such a good job addressing our pre-sales questions.

Ipswitch Hi,

For use with Internet Explorer I recommend the Power Surfer Edition if you do not need command line or scripting support (if you do, then select iMacros PRO or Scripting).

For Firefox, you can start out with the free version, and upgrade to the Scripting Edition if you need to do so later.

A S Just want to say that iMacros is a truly wonderful and indispensable product. I purchased the full scripting edition last year, and it doesn't disappoint. The package is incredibly powerful and provides complete control over the browser. Well worth the money (even though I paid full price for it - I wish I had known about this upcoming BDJ discount!)
A few notes:
1] Regarding the differences between the scripting edition and the regular version: it is important to note that the regular version, to the best of my knowledge, does not include any conditionals or branching in its macro language. That is, if you wish to check the value of a control on a site and then perform one action or another in response to the value of the control, you must have the scripting edition, wherein you can use conditionals in the language of your choice. Put simply, if you need to perform an "if" in your macro, then you will need the scripting edition.
2] @Robert - you asked about why firefox users would want to buy this. Here too, I believe that the primary advantage would be in upgrading to the scripting edition for the conditionals. Right now, you don't have any options for branching or conditionals in the free firefox add-on, but with the scripting edition, you'll be able to use conditionals freely. That's a world of difference - moving from simple linear scripts to complex conditional scripts that can essentially do anything.
3] @David - regarding scripting for Internet Explorer - there are useful code samples on the site. But just to get you started here's some sample code for C++ to connect to an existing instance of Internet Explorer; see if this works (note: this assumes that you are working with Visual C++ in a C++/CLR project, and that you have added imacros to the list of COM references for the project):

// allocate an imacro object
iMacros::AppClass^ app = gcnew iMacros::AppClass();

// connect to existing IE browser (using 180 for timeout value)
retval = app-iimInit("-ie",false,"","","",180);
if (retval == iMacros::Status::sOk) {
// success!

Goran Janevski Is iMacros only good for web pages?

What if I need to automate mouse clicks and keyboard keystrokes outside of a web page? Can iMacros do this, OR do I have to buy an extra add-on, OR nothing outside of a web page is supported?

Sep 23 2011 at 6:28am Copy Link
Ipswitch @Robert - You can use the ACT! database as input/output for iMacros via our Scripting Interface (API)

@Wayne - you can download the software anytime. The download link never expires.

@Goran: iMacros specializes in automating EVERYTHING inside the web browser. But you can connect it to other applications via the command line interface (PRO Edition) and programming API (Scripting Edition)

If you plan to distribute your solution I recommend our iMacros Enterprise bundles. They consist of one or more iMacros Scripting Edition licenses and the popular Unlimited User Player license. You can also cross-upgrade to the Enterprise Bundles anytime later.

Neal Lassiter From the comparison chart on your site, it looks like a certain number of players are included with the scripting edition (4th check mark under scripting edition). Is this true? If so, how many?

Jason Weidenbenner I already own an older version of the scripting edition (6.12), and I would like to upgrade. Which package would I choose to do this?

Ashley Aitken Hi,

Thanks for the discount offer and pre-sales support. I too am a Free Firefox user and, basically, wish to support the development of iMacros, which we find very useful, but can't see any use in buying the Power Surfer IE Add-on.

What I would like to know, as soon as possible, if possible, is how does the IE add-on differ from the Free Firefox add-on (if at all). May I suggest that you should have an extra column on your comparison for the Free Firefox add-on.

Please excuse me if I am missing something and thank for the Free Firefox add-on.

Ashley Aitken Oops, forgot to ask - does the Free Firefox add-on support AJAX 100% or would I be better off moving to the IE add-on?

Don't like IE very much so would prefer to stay with Firefox, but we are shortly needing to control an AJAX web site.

Goran Janevski Enterprise bundles, please, where are they?

Ashley Aitken Oops again, just found "Compare All" which answers a lot of my questions. I think I will be getting the IE Power Surfer version (though wish VERY MUCH there was similar for Firefox) :-(

Sorry for the noise.

Ipswitch @Ashley: iMacros Power Surfer Edition (and all other business editions) has 100% Ajax/Flash support.

@Neal: The Scripting Edition does not contain Player licenses.

Player licenses are available as 5-user (US$ 99), 50-user (US$ 199) or Unlimited User (US$ 399) license packages.

If you need player licenses I recommend our iMacros Enterprise bundles. They consist of one or more iMacros Scripting Edition licenses and the popular Unlimited User Player license.

Robert Bull @A.S.: thanks for the point about conditionals. *IF* I had still been at work, I would have considered the Scripting Edition, but I can't justify it or afford it for home use. I would have seriously considered a Power Surfer version had one existed for Firefox, if only to support the program. As things are, I'm passing, however regretfully.

Goran Janevski Thanks for the answer on the bundles.

How steep is the learning curve, and how good is the documentation?

Does one have to be an expert web developer to be able to write scripts?

Sep 23 2011 at 11:57am Copy Link
Ipswitch Hi Goran: The documentation is available as public wiki at and we have an active user forum at

Basic HTML knowledge is useful for creating more complex scripts, but you do not need to be an expert at all. The iMacros Scripting Edition license includes free Silver Level tech support, so our support team is ready to help you with your project! For more details on our support see

Rick Truell If, as has been suggested, the free Firefox add-on can't do conditionals and branching, you might want to consider the freeware AutoIt ( instead of coughing up $500 (well, $250 with today's offer) for the scripting edition. I have no personal experience with automating actions in a web browser, but a friend seems to be having a lot of luck using AutoIt to automate things he does in Firefox, including interacting with Flash elements.

Nico Westerdale Due to the overwhelming response iOpus Software GmbH has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!
BitsDuJour Admin - Sep 24 2011 at 12:00am Copy Link
Ipswitch @Rick: Thanks for your hints. But let me clarify that while Autoit is great software, it is something very different: iMacros can run many instances at once (e. g. automate 10 browsers at the same time!), record your actions visually directly inside the web browser, automate file up- & downloads, extract data from websites, has a programming API,..., and can run in the background.

Windows macro recorder like AutoIt are great to, well, automate Windows applications like Notepad or Paint, but if you want to automate anything inside a *web browser* then iMacros is the - by far - most powerful software available. It is also considerably easier to use as you can visually record activity directly inside the web browser.
iOpus Software GmbH - Sep 24 2011 at 1:31am Copy Link
A S @Rick - on the comparison to AutoIt:
At the end of his comments Mathias mentioned "can run in the background" - I'd like to highlight this one, because it is really quite significant. Autoit generally takes complete control of your computer - when it is running, activating windows and entering data etc., you cannot be using your computer for anything else at the same time. In contrast, iMacros programs each run directly on a particular instance of a browser, extracting and saving data, reading HTML fields, and more - all while you fully continue using your computer, including surfing using another instance of the same browser.

Robert Bull I used to use the excellent WebSite-Watcher to track changes in competitor and customer sites for work, as well as personal-interest software. Then I usually needed to clip at least some of the material from the changed pages to alert colleagues. Can iMacros check differences, as well as automatically download pages and sections?

David Mitchell Well, I bought the most expensive version of iMacros at full price, not at a discount, purchasing their superior service as part of the deal. I can't get it to run with Internet Explorer, although there's surely a way. I can't get it to log into my GoDaddy email account for more than a day, and I don't think there is a way to do that. MR at iMacros started work on both issues 9/24 and now it's 10/13, and despite two emails to him, no word back since. Maybe he will see this and tell everyone why I didn't get what I paid the big bucks for. Am I experienced? I have a masters in computers and was using the Internet before Al Gore invented it. Maybe I'm not too dumb. Nice product where it works. Maybe tech support is overwhelmed?
