Generic Installer Automation

Post by joejeff » Wed May 04, 2016 5:06 pm

I am new to Ranorex and would like to know if it is possible to do something like automation generically installers:

- Wait for new top window
- Enumerate through all buttons
- Check if the buttons names equal "Next", "I agree" etc
- Clock on the button
- Loop

So far I am using AutoIt to do so.

All you mentioned is definitely possible with Ranorex and even more. However, I think you will have to start with User Guide, screencasts,code samples and possibly also Ranorex API documentation to learn and understand the basics. Ranorex is a fully featured dev. tool with C#/VB .NET support so even if there is something not directly supported by Ranorex, you can almost always code a workaround ;)
