Chrome and Flash objects

Post by Vaughan.Douglas » Thu Dec 01, 2016 5:01 pm

We can't use the normal instrumentation wizard to get the Flash/Flex set up, so we do the manual work around of downloading and installing the debugger.

The installation process for all three appeared to be successful. Likewise the "Enable Ranorex Preloader Instrumentation" process in the Instrumentation wizard.

It worked great for IE and FireFox, but not so much for Chrome (Version 54.0.2840.87 m).
We're using Ranorex 6.1.1 and I beg for the death of Flash.

Hi Douglas,

Unfortunately, Chrome dropped the support for the Flash.
Therefore, it is not possible to test your Flash/Flex application in Chrome.
I would suggest using Firefox instead.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

I knew Chrome's support for Flash was going away, but I had assumed that since the Flash application still worked in Chrome the debugger would also work.
