Getting started with Ranorex Studio

Are you new to test automation with Ranorex Studio? If so, there are several resources to help you get started.

First, there is a “Getting Started” tutorial right inside the Ranorex Studio workspace. This tutorial appears automatically after you install Ranorex Studio for the first time. To open the tutorial from the menu at any time, select View > First steps in Ranorex Studio. You may also find it helpful to review the sample solutions, which you’ll find on the Ranorex Studio Start page, shown below.


If you prefer to learn by reading, refer to the Ranorex Studio Fundamentals section of the User Guide for a similar tutorial.

Finally, if you prefer to learn by watching tutorial videos, our Quick Start screencast series demonstrates how to:

  • Download and install the trial version of Ranorex Studio
  • Create a test solution
  • Record and execute your first test case
  • Resolve a test case that has failed

This video series is available on the Ranorex YouTube channel, but we’ve also embedded the tutorials below for your convenience.

Download and install Ranorex Studio

Learn how to download and install the free trial of Ranorex Studio and create your first test.

Create a test solution

Learn about the Ranorex Studio Start screen and the components of a test solution.


Record a test

Use the Ranorex Recorder to capture user actions and build an automated test. To follow along, download the free Ranorex Demo Application and unzip it to a folder on your computer.


The action editor and the repository

This video introduces the action editor. Learn about the actions recorded in the previous video, and how these actions are connected to items in the repository.


Execute a test

See how to execute a test suite and view the test run report from within Ranorex Studio. For detailed instructions on executing a test suite from the command line or the Ranorex Test Suite Runner, refer to the Ranorex Studio User Guide.


Resolve a failing test case

Learn how to simulate a test run failure and resolve the failing test in the final video of the quick start series. The example in this video uses hard-coded test data. As an alternative to hard-coded test data, you can perform data-driven testing with Ranorex Studio. For information about data-driven testing, refer to the Ranorex Studio User Guide.
