Can I run IMatch 3 Scripts in IMatch 5?
« on: May 27, 2013, 11:52:30 AM »
No, not directly.

Due to the large number of enhancements and changes made to IMatch 5, the scripting system used for it had to be changed and extended in several areas. I used the chance to make some breaking changes after several years of maintaining strict compatibility. This means that most scripts written for IMatch 3 need to be updated to work with IMatch 5. The changes may be small or bigger, depending on how complex your script is.

The Script Migration Guide in the IMatch help file lists the most frequent changes required, and also contains tips and tricks about how to migrate existing scripts.
