Objects in Solution not recognized after upgrading Ranorex

Post by harinidsm » Wed May 27, 2015 10:22 pm

Hi,

I recently upgraded Ranorex from 5.1.2 to 5.3.0. The objects in my existing Solution which I had recorded earlier in Ranorex 5.1.2 are not being recognized after I upgraded to 5.3.0.

My Windows version: Windows 7 SP1

Kindly let me know how to proceed.

Thanks,
Harini.

Hi,

It's hard to say what's wrong without more details about your AUT(tested technology), used xpaths and especially without seeing Ranorex snapshot. Could you please provide these details?

Additionally, Ranorex 5.3.0 introduced some breaking changes! Have you read the release notes?

And finally, I would personally recommend not to use 5.3.0, which proved to be a bit buggy ;) Get the latest 5.3.2 instead.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

I would agree with Pavel on all counts.

You should always upgrade to the latest bug patch available. 5.3.2 has several fixes over 5.3.0.

Also, have you tried using Ranorex Spy to validate that the XPath in your repository is correct. It could be that the XPaths have changed due to changes in Ranorex since 5.1.x.
