Ranorex 9.0 - Debugger not starting

Post by mariaspeigl » Tue Apr 02, 2019 3:20 pm


we have the problem that the AUT does not start when debugging mode is enabled.

Without debugging mode everything works fine.

There is always a black logging screen with no text:

When stopping the session, Ranorex hangs.
Some months ago it was no problem to use the debugging mode.
I am always starting Ranorex as administrator.

Where may be the problem here?
I used different projects, already deinstalled Ranorex - nothing works...

Many thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, it's hard to tell what's wrong, without seeing your problem in action. It could be somehow related to your app under test, but I rather suspect it's somehow related to your environment or eventually, corrupted solution? Could you please check these few things?

Have you tried to debug a clean new solution, created with 9.0?
Have you tried another solution, converted from previous Ranorex version?
Have you tried to debug the same solution on another PC?
Have you tried to uninstall Ranorex and install it back?
Make sure your antivirus/GOP does not interfere with Ranorex (try to temporarily disable Antivirus and ask your IT folks about GOP).
