Failed to instrument WPF process

Post by rzavsky » Mon Feb 04, 2019 9:36 am


Some of my tests are failing because of this error "Failed to instrument WPF process. UI element identification capabilities for this window are limited. Could not set-up managed injection endpoint: Bootstrapping Ranorex Instrumentation failed. ". I found a solution where I have to remove all .NET framework installations and Ranorex. But I would like to ask, if there is any other way how to solve it?

Have you tried to run your test/Ranorex Studio as an Administrator? This often helps with similar problems.
