No, sorry. Ranorex will currently not run on Linux nor Mac.

Android will be supported with the upcoming Ranorex version 3.3. iOS will possibly follow with one of the next major/minor versions.

No, Ranorex is build on .NET framework and SharpDevelop 3.2. It also installs Windows specific filter drivers for the mouse and keyboard, which only work on Windows. Without these Ranorex will not work.



NOTE: I realize that SOME .NET applications can be run on Linux with Mono. This is not an option with Ranorex due to how it is built. Ranorex also cannot guarantee the stability of the tool on Mono because Mono is not supported by Microsoft and therefore is not fully feature compliant in some areas (specifically low-level drivers and system calls).
