Errors with Ranorex 5.3.4

Post by jackrabbit » Mon Feb 15, 2016 10:56 pm

Because I had problems with Ranorex, tech support recommended I uninstall / reinstall VC++ Redistributable package. I did it but now I have more problems than before:

1) When I start Ranorex from the shortcut on the desktop, I get this error:
2016-02-15_16h56_05.png (43.96 KiB) Viewed 848 times
2) When I try to compile my solution, I get this error:
2016-02-15_16h58_28.png (9.94 KiB) Viewed 847 times
I tried to install the Framework 4, but Windows blocked me because I already had a more recent version installed (4.6.1), so I uninstalled Framework 4.6.1, I re-installed FRamework 4.0, then I re-installed Framework 4.6.1, but now it no longer shows FRamework 4.0 as being installed, and I still get the Ranorex error when I compile.

I am stuck!

Uninstalling VC++ Redistributable package is not a very good idea, because Ranorex requires it. Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall Ranorex?

Also, what problems exactly you experienced with Ranorex (before you tried to uninstall VC++ redist. package)? The same problem as shown on the attached screenshot?

Please keep in mind that Ranorex 5.3.4 is a very old and no longer supported version. I would suggest to try to install latest 5.4.5 (even in trial mode) to see if the problem gets fixed.
