Automation helpers - pdf.exe

Post by armstronghm24 » Thu Mar 11, 2021 9:08 pm

:!: :!: Is there a way to build the Ranorex.pdf.exe without the double extension? Antivirus software recognizes that executable as a threat. I have tried to reach out to Ranorex support without any luck on the topic. If that is not possible, is there a way to use the other automation helpers without including the ranorex.pdf automation helper and use another method to convert the reports to a PDF after test suite execution? :!: :!:

The reason for antivirus software reporting the exe as a threat is because there are some Ranorex specific DLL's inside. These DLL's are designed to inject into other applications. Currently, white listing the Report to pdf exe is the best method to avoid this.
