Opening local file with WebDriver endpoint drops first ':'

Post by krstcs » Mon Jul 17, 2017 3:27 pm

Ranorex 7.1.0
Windows 10
WebDriver

Attempting to pass a local file-based url to a WebDriver endpoint in Ranorex results in Ranorex dropping the first ':' after "file".

"file:///c:/MyFile.html" gets passed as "file///c:/MyFile.html" which is invalid.

Tested with Selenium, same WD version, and .NET, and it works fine.

Same script works fine with Localhost as endpoint (stock Ranorex).
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Hello Krstcs,

Thank you for reporting this issue.
We were able to reproduce it on our side and forwarded it to our development team.

Currently, we do not know if and when this issue will be fixed. This depends on various factors. Nevertheless, all reported bugs and feature requests are documented in the release notes, with every new version release of Ranorex.

Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

Regards,
Stephan
