    I've been trying to find out if this is possible and can't find an answer. I have a few iMacro scripts that i wrote and i would like to convert them to EXE files. From what i've read it's not really possible. I did look into converting iMacro --> javascript --> EXE but it was beyond my ability.

    I did find this free program on SourgeForce which will convert iMacros to javascript, VBS, etc: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/imacros-codegen
    iMacrosCodeCreator.0.0.16.png


    Also i did see that the full $2000 IOpus program has the Save as EXE feature so i know it must be somehow possible.

    I do have a copy of UBot 4.15 but i don't really want to have to learn a new code and have to rewrite the script just to be able to end up with an EXE file.

    The iMacro script is for Pinterest, it does stuff like auto follow, auto like, auto repin, auto url and description edit. Ideally i would like for the user to enter in values like "Load keyword text file" "Load description text file" then click on a RUN button.

    Thanks

    the imacros browser has a 1 month limited trial, try it, but it can be that function is not available in the trial
    however if you look around on the net or maybe even here in the DL section, you'll find the discounted copy of the full version, if you know what i'm talking about :)

    after doing some more reading and talking to Fatboy (who knows all about programs like this) i've realized that iMacros will never really work as an EXE. So i've decided to try and recreate the programs using Ubot. It's a pain but hopefully it will turn out.

    It just sucks that i put a lot of time into learning and making iMacro scripts and not be able to share them via an EXE file.

    Ya but i wanted to make a stand-alone EXE file. Something that wouldn't require the person to have iMacro installed as an add-on in firefox.

    I already have a simple batch file that will run the program (i use it with Windows Task Scheduler to automatically run at midnight, 2am, 4am) Here's the batch file to run the macro:


    ----------- this batch file closes firefox, waits about 10 seconds, then restarts it and runs the javascript file ------------
    ----------- the javascript file just runs multiple imacros one after another (i have 5 of them) -------------------

    ECHO OFF
    taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe
    ping 192.168.1.1
    START "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" http://run.imacros.net/?m=javaloop.js
    ping 192.168.1.1
    START "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" http://run.imacros.net/?m=javaloop.js
    ---------------------------------------------------------


    -------- this code is to replace all the iMacro scripts from 1 folder into the main iMacro folder -------------
    -------- i use this because i have different files for different accounts ------------------
    @ECHO OFF
    REM This will copy the contents of folder to the new world folder
    XCOPY C:\Users\"user name"\Documents\iMacros\Macros\pinterest-macros C:\Users\"user name"\Documents\iMacros\Macros /Y
