Microsoft Update for IE11 (KB3025390) Breaks TAG Command in iMacros for IE

by / Monday, 22 December 2014 / Published in Browser Addon Announcements

Update 2015-01-12: This issue is fixed in the new iMacros V10.3 – please download it from the iMacros Download Page.

On December 17th, Microsoft released update KB3025390 for IE11. After applying this update, all TAG commands played back in iMacros for IE result in the following error:

Error -1300: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

The issue does not affect the iMacros browser, so we recommend using the iMacros browser for playback until we can provide an update for iMacros for IE that resolves the issue.

If you must use iMacros with IE11, another workaround is to uninstall Microsoft update KB3025390. This is a non-security related update, so uninstalling it will not put IE in any greater risk. However, after uninstalling the update, “you may experience unexpected behavior when you interact with sites that use one or more web application modal dialog boxes.” — which is what the update was intended to fix.

We will continue to update this blog post with any additional relevant information and status updates as they become available.
