Extension for Chrome Prevented the Closing of Processes

Post by Stefan Schnell » Fri Aug 18, 2017 10:11 am

Hello community,

today I wanted to install a new Google Chrome version, but it wasn't possible, because Ranorex Extension for Google Chrome prevented this. After the closing of all visible Chrome sessions the Ranorex Extension for Chrome holds with the process

Code: Select all

C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /d /c "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 7.1\Bin\Ranorex.Plugin.ChromeMsgHost.exe" chrome-extension://blabla/ --parent-window=0 < \\.\pipe\chrome.nativeMessaging.in.e4711 > \\.\pipe\chrome.nativeMessaging.out.e4712
all standard Chrome sessions open, e.g. like Crash-Handler, Watcher etc.

If I close all visible Chrome sessions with a deactivated Ranorex Extension, Chrome closes all processes automatically after a short while.

Is it possible to configure Ranorex Extension that it also releases its process after closing Chrome?

Thanks for tips and hints.

Cheers
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

you could try to disable the "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" within chrome://settings -> Advanced -> System.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
