Could you please tell us the type of exception being thrown? You only posted the stacktrace.

I can only assume that you forgot to set the STAThreadAttribute to your Main method or to set the apartment state of the thread executing the Ranorex.Web code to ApartmentState.STA.

[STAThread] is set to the Main Method of the console application.

the Exception is "COMException" "Klasse nicht registriert"
HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)

thanks!

Sounds like a strange problem. What's your operating system and Internet Explorer version?

It may be that either the Ranorex or the Internet Explorer installations are broken. You could try to reinstall/repair the Ranorex installation. And if then the exception is still there, reinstalling/repairing your Internet Explorer installation might help.

yes ;)

IE6: 6.0.2300.2180
Windows XP SP 2

--> virtual PC 2007

i already re-installed ranorex. i also installed the older version 1.4
both with the same error.

is it maybe the virtual PC??

I don't think so.

Have you tried reinstalling IE 6?

I could (finally) reproduce this error. Reinstalling the Internet Explorer won't help, sorry!

I posted a workaround for this bug in the following forum thread:
