Issue with Ranorex Addon installed on IE

Post by hanguyen2009 » Tue Sep 01, 2015 11:31 am


When I run Ranorex on server, I got Warning message as :' 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 following website provides more information on this technology limitation: ... html#c3253"

I checked settings follow guidance on support that fine as files attachement, but this warning message still display every time ranorex running,

Please help to check,

Hello hanguyen2009,

The settings in Internet Explorer seem to be correct, but usually the security protection is a little bit more strict on server operating systems.
Please also make sure that the "Enable third-party browser extensions" is enabled.
