Please describe your problem in more detail.

Please update Ranorex to the current version (5.2.1).

I have no issues with Ranorex identifying the IE address bar.

Hi krstsc

Will I have any backward compatibility for my previous tests if I install 5.2.1 ?

I can not run my recorded IE address bar test, I dont know but I get object recognition error.

Actually real problem is why I need to use addres bar, I can not open browser remotely.

If I call my produced exe to open a browser remotely, it opens browser but not recognizing, It opens browser without an icon in the windows bar. If tehre is no icon, no recognition by Ranorex.

Actualy same problem when I open browser with PsExex remotely even without using Renorex.

I think this is a browser problem. Browsers can not call remotely, have you ever come up with this problem ?

PS: The only solution I have found so far, to open a browser remotely, call my ranroex exe that clicks windows icon and in the run program textbox write browser name and address bar and run. Cant find any other suitable solution.

Thanks,
Rastek.

Hello rastek,

Ranorex 5.2.1 is backwards compatible with version 5.1 (excepts the breaking changes). It seems like the browser doesn’t load the plugins correctly.

Which version of IE do you use?

Please provide the error message as well.

Regards,
Robert
