Device list is empty after PC crash

Post by Otter_T » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:07 pm

Running Ranorex 6.2.0 on Windows 7 (I know, I know)...

My PC crashed (blue screen) during a test run with an Android device. After restarting the PC, my project files seem intact, but the 13 devices I had set up seem to have vanished. The Devices view is empty.

Is the device list stored in an individual/standalone file that I could retrieve from my nightly backup without overwriting any of the projects I've worked on today? I really don't want to have to manually re-add all my devices.

Hello Otter_T,

The devices are stored in the "RanorexConfig6.xml" file. The file is in you profile folder ("C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming").

If your profile is backed up somewhere you might be able to restore the devices.
I hope this helps.

Regards,
McTurtle
