Ranorex 9.0 & Slack

Post by SanMan » Tue Feb 26, 2019 11:35 am

When updated to 9.0, seems that there are something strange with Slack & Ranorex.

Sometimes when item should be found on Chrome, it is found on Slack. When Slack is closed, test cases pass.

Have you tried to add Chrome process to the Ranorex white list? Once on white list, Ranorex should ignore any other process.

Hi SanMan,

This is a known issue that was caused by Electron-based applications (which includes Slack). We have already implemented a bug fix which will be included in the upcoming Ranorex 8.3 and 9.0 releases. In the meantime, using the white list feature as mentioned by odklizec is the recommended workaround.
