During validation step, an error occurs.

Post by malini » Fri Jun 26, 2015 9:16 am

In WPF window, I am able to locate the item and navigate to another item, while validating the item name, i get some error like the one i mentioned below,

"Failed to load the assemblies containing the definition of this control. UI element identification capabilities for this control are limited."

I installed the extension of Ranorex from google chrome, The situation is still same.

Could someone explain me what i am missing here!!

There are missing some crucial details in your post. Please let us know your Ranorex version and post Ranorex snapshot of the problematic element (or send it to [email protected]).

Please keep in mind that Ranorex introduced new and greatly improved WPF plugin in 5.3.0. So if you are experiencing your problem in older version, try to update to latest 5.3.2 (it's recommended to update to 5.3.2, even if you are using 5.3.0 or 5.3.1).

  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
