Failed to activate Windows app 'MicrosoftEdge'

Post by johhcm » Tue May 09, 2017 6:40 am

I'm getting the below error on trying to launch Edge browser using Open browser.

Failed to activate Windows app 'MicrosoftEdge' from app family 'Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_############'.
Failed to find required component Ranorex.AppLauncher.exe.
Regards,
John

Hi,

MS Edge is only supported via WebDriver integration, introduced in Ranorex 7.0.

This looks like an installation problem. Please, try to re-install Ranorex and make sure to use the most up-to-date version, which is currently 7.0.1.

This is true for interacting with the DOM in Edge, but you can still start Edge like in previous versions and interact with the app in general.
