Different between 32/64 bit pathes

Post by DenysKoval » Tue Jul 10, 2018 3:02 pm

Dear all!
I have two virtual machines vm1 and vm 2:
Windows server 2012 R2 16 GB RAM, 64-bit OC x64-based processor
On one of them present license on Ranorex v7.2 and on another trial version of Ranorex v7.2

I have application which build on Release version x86 on Visual Studio.
When I got path using Ranorex Spy 32-bit from vm1 and paste with path on Ranorex Spy 32 bit on vm2, Spy on vm2 can not find object.
The same situation on another way : path from vm2 paste on vm1 and Spy can not find it.
For example :
Path from vm1 :
/form[@controlname='MainForm']/?/?/?/tabpagelist[@controlname='tabControl']/tabpage[@controlname='tabPage1']///text[@controlname='_maskBox']

Path from vm2 :
/form[@controlname='MainForm']/?/?/?/element[@controlname='tabControl']/tabpage[@controlname='tabPage1']///text[@controlname='_maskBox']

When I got from vm1 path using Spy-32 bit and paste this path on vm 2 Spy-64 bit , in 50% situation it's ok.
In another way : vm2 Spy-64bit path does not work on vm1 Spy-32 bit.

I installed last version of .Net Framework on both vm-s,reinstall Ranorex,run tested application by one user (admin).
I confused,what kind of problem it is? And how I can fix it.
Thanks!

Hi,

At first, we need more info about the tested app (what kind of GUI technology)? Ideally, post a Ranorex snapshot of the problematic element, taken on both machines. This would tell us more. Additionally, please try the most recent Ranorex 8.2.0. Version 7.2 is somewhat old and it’s always better to try such kind of problems with most recent version. Thanks.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
