    i highlight my accounts, right-click->export, close FL. i zip the "data" and "db_dump" folders.

    i install FL on the new computer, unzip the 2 folder.

    launch FL, click File > load project, and there is nothing there? import and export folders are all empty?

    i heard that FL support is so good, and it takes more than 24 hours to answer any questions. i guess i must be the picky one. or is it all promotion here?

    i have got it for 4 days now and have not yet decided if its worth it.

    i uninstall it from computer 1 and get the 'only 1 computer' error on computer 2. the thing should be plain and simple: dont let me login from 2 computers at the same time! why do i have to keep uninstalling and installing?

    the look and feel is not intuitive as normal/standard software. (e.g., the thing is installed in the appData\roaming folder? the folder is not even displayed in windows explorer.) as i come to understand more about how instagram works, i am not so sure now that FL is that useful especially with the hassle, and if i want to maintain quality IG accounts.

    i have setup my own proxy server with my own IPs, which should be much better than bought private proxies. i can use gramblr or bluestacks to upload pictures although they dont seem convenient to use either.

    i am not sure scraped images using FL can be used for my accounts since hashtags are not very accurate.
    i have yet to even find out how sharing scraped images works exactly.

    You can only registered your license on 1 pc, if you re-registered on a another pc, FL will not run. You can have your license reset by opening a support ticket. They usually respond in about 24 hrs, +1 or 2 days more.


    Am I not understanding this correctly? Scraping images and hashtags are 2 different thing. Many prefer to scrape either images who liked or comment and or scrape from a huge acc with mass followers.

    I maybe wrong about this. I think we can't save the settings.

    It does that a bit to learn the software. Read and re-read the manual a few times and experiment with the settings will help you get a better understanding of the software.


    FL has quite a few features to utilize from.

    i guess you are right. i prolly re-registered it on the 2nd computer. now even if i deleted every file from computer 1, i still get the error. i guess they dont have 'login', only register? respond in 24+ hours? my vps support respond in 3 sec, every freaking time!

    it was not clear to me what 'query' means. i took it as a hashtag in scraping photos. (unless you are saying it has to be a user name?) what i tried was to use hashtags to scrape images. hashtags are not accurate because if i look for 'bostonoperahouse' the top results can be an account, it can be a hashtag, or even a location. even if it's a hashtag result, people can post anything while using that tag.

    for some reason, i did not have a *.flk project file to move. i guess that was why i couldnt move the settings, and there was no projects to reload.

    If you are looking for specific followers to interact with, hashtags aren't the way to go. Any can add a hashtag you may want to scrape from but their photos aren't related to your niche. Try scraping from usersname with high amount of followers and or images with high amount of likes and or comments. FL can scrape using different queries.


    I can't say much about the fast support response time. You aren't the only one with option about their support system. Once in awhile the developer would reply on here, but don't rely on that. Wait until they responds. Also, what I find out about their support is to give a detail description of your issues. You will get a better reply than if you just say 'My software doesn't work.'

    scraping photos that way still wont give me good results though. how about scraping users? you are saying the 'query' can be more than 1 word? can you give me an example? e.g., users who liked a specifc photo which was posted within 24 hours?

    This is one way. You will need to find an image and grab it's photo id [1108786970459137053_21804888]. iconosquare[dot]com is a great tool to use to get the photo id from. Input the photo id into FL to scrape users who liked. FL doesn't have the option to scrape users in a time frame. You can choose to scrape top results.


    Antoher possible way now is to use the FLC method. When I was using FLC, we can only input username 'FLC:username'. I think we can add more options now. Check the manual for FLC for more info.

    That's exactly what I thought as first too. But after using it a months now and learning on the way, it is brilliant imo.
