Sets the folder location for the file that contains the stopwatch measurement data.

By default the file name is performance_macroname.csv and is located in the download directory of your iMacros installation.

Value iMacros Browser IE Plug-in Firefox

Valid location of the output file|NO.

Setting !FOLDER_STOPWATCH to NO instructs iMacros not to create a response time log file. Use !FOLDER_STOPWATCH NO if you do NOT need a response time log file, if you retrieve the values with the Scripting Interface via iimGetStopwatch, for example.

You can set a different name for the stopwatch file with !FILESTOPWATCH. if !FILESTOPWATCH is set to a path containing a folder, but it is not a full path (no drive letter), it will be combined with the value of !FOLDER_STOPWATCH to a full path.

If the folder does not exist, it will be created (only with iMacros for IE and the iMacros Browser; iMacros for Firefox will raise an error if the folder does not already exist).
