EdgeChromium will not open in web runtime

Post by kdreiling » Mon Feb 15, 2021 7:58 pm

Hello, I've tried to track a similar situation in this forum to help resolve the following issue. If anyone has had this issue and has some insight I would love to hear it.

Since IE is going way, we want to run our test suites on MS Edge Chromium. Our tech support downloaded MS Edge Version 88.0.705.68 (64-bit). My test suite is being executed via Ranorex (32-bit). I ran the instrument wizard and added the Chromium extension. When I run the recording that opens the web site in EdgeChromium, I receive the following error:

Failed to open URL 'ndbhstage.ndbh.com' with browser EdgeChromium.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Show/Hide Stacktrace
at Ranorex.Host.OpenBrowser(String url, String browserName, String browserArgs, Boolean killExisting, Boolean maximized, Boolean clearCache, Boolean incognitoMode, Boolean clearCookies, Boolean instrument)at NDBH_Regression_Test_Suite_v2.Recordings.WebBrowsers.Open_Browser.Ranorex.Core.Testing.ITestModule.Run() in C:\Ranorex\NDBH_Regression_Test_Suite_v2\NDBH_Regression_Test_Suite_v2\Recordings\WebBrowsers\Open_Browser.cs:line 118at Ranorex.Core.Testing.TestModuleLeaf.RunInternal(DataContext parentDataContext, Int32 iteration, Int32 iterationCount, Boolean skipIteration)

Once I switch back to Chrome, the recording to open the browser executes successfully.

If anyone has encountered this issue, please share how it was resolved.
