Ranorex building but not running

Post by kks » Mon Feb 04, 2013 12:31 pm

Hello -

OS: Windows 7 Pro SP1
Ranorex version:

I haven't had problems with this before and only in the last two or so weeks (and I can't pinpoint exactly what changed that made this start to happen). Basically, I can't get Ranorex to run. Whenever I press the "Run" button, it builds (successfully) and then just ends. Only when I run it "without attached debugger" does it actually run the code. I would like to be able to run selected steps, etc. but all other options just builds and stops, no errors, nothing.

How can I fix this? Is it some setting that I accidentally set?

Have you changed anything in your project settings (e.g. Debug settings)?
Have you set a 'Break Point' in your Code?
Do you get a 'Console Window' if you start your test normally?

Could you please create a new solution with a short recording and try to run it?
(Example: Open Calculator and click on a button.)
Do you get the same result?
