6.1 : can't spy windows and outlook

Post by Richard Prudhon » Thu Nov 03, 2016 11:55 am


I previously wrote a post because I had issues with DevExpress and Infragistics.
I put another here in bugs, because I noticed it applies to outlook and Windows(!) itself.

When it works (snapshot from a Win32 xp, but I had positive experience with Win7 64bits), it looks like that:

When it doesn't works, on a Win7 64 bits, it looks like this (I"m targetting the Chrome icon):
SpyNotWorks.png (67.48 KiB) Viewed 1054 times
Do you need more info?

Thanks in advance

I've never saw issue like this (with windows taskbar). So in my opinion, it's something computer related? Unfortunately, it's pretty hard/impossible to tell what exactly is wrong without examining your PC ;) I would suggest you to reinstall .Net and all Ranorex prerequisites. Eventually, try some of the MS's "fix tools", like this one for .Net:

And finally, try to reinstall Ranorex entirely.

BTW, what version of .Net is installed on your PC?
