Execution very slow on IE 11

Post by bennylew » Thu Mar 10, 2016 8:59 am

Hello,

I'm executing the .exe file on a Windows 7 64bit and IE 11. Unfortunately it is very slow and I also get a warning in my Report: "Please make sure that you have the Ranorex Addon installed and enabled in Internet Explorer. Otherwise Ranorex UI element identification might be very slow."

The addon is enabled and the "Enhanced Protected Mode" is disabled. IE is not running in private mode.

Do you have any idea what else can cause this warning?

Hi,

What version of Ranorex are you using? Latest is 5.4.5 so if you are using older one, try to update.

Additionally, check the IE setting mentioned here:

  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

Could i ask you to restart the test machine and run the test suite again. And please report back if it ran normally after that.

Thanks four your replies.
The reason why it is so slow is caused in our infrastructure...We use one physical machine with three VMs to run our tests. If there are parallel test executions the Speed is very slow.
The reason for the warning (addon disabled) has something to do with our user policies i guess.

But this leads me to another question: What Kind of infrastructure do you prefer to execute tests on different machines at the same time. We use VMWare, because we can Close the RDP-Session of the host System and the included VMs are still running (with Desktop).
