Hello All,

we use Ranorex 6.2.1 and our AUT bases on Electron. It seems, that recording doesn´t work. Are there any problems known with Electron or do I need a Plugin for this (see attachment)?

I'm afraid, Ranorex 6.2.1 is a long time dead horse ;) Please try to reproduce the problem with most recent 9.1 (even in trial mode). If the problem is not reproducible with most recent version, you have your answer. There were introduced many new features, bug fixes and improvements, between 6.2.1 and 9.1, including several CEF-related improvements. Which means, that debugging such kind of issue, with long time obsolete Ranorex version, is just a waste of time.

BTW, have you followed the CEF-related troubleshooting tips in Ranorex user guide?
