Ranorex Recorder inclusion

Post by James Hirst » Mon Jun 25, 2007 10:34 am

I have been led to believe that the Recorder (when it ships) will come with the Pro version of Ranorex - now I see that according to you product comparison tables, it will only ship with the "Premium" version of Ranorex - is this the case?

Yes, originally we wanted to ship the Recorder as an alone product, then we decided to put it into a Premium package.
But RanorexPro user will get an attractive offer for upgrading to the Premium version.

Lack of Recorder in Pro version

Post by James Hirst » Wed Jun 27, 2007 10:44 am

Well, two things.

1. I don't wish to upgrade to the "Premium" version as I don't need to do Web Testing

2. I feel very let down that those companies that have evaluated then bought Ranorex Pro - like ourselves - are now being told it won't come with Ranorex Pro and that you'll have to shell out more to get hold of it.

Hi James,

We discussed this topic today and decided to ship the Recorder to all existing RanorexPro users with 12 months maintenance.
You will get a full Recorder with every RanorexPro update until your license expires.
After that, you can upgrade to a RanorexPro or RanorexPremium package.

Hi Jeno,

Thank you - I applaud your decision to do this :D

When can we expect a working version of the Recorder?

Thanks,
James

Recorder issues

Post by James Hirst » Thu Jul 05, 2007 11:08 am

Hi,

I tried it but the only difference I could see was that dummy (0k) .py, .cpp & .cs files are getting generated if I opt to save but STILL, no Python / C++ / C# source code is generated!!!

Also you have pointed me to a time limited version of the product, why is this?

Can you also advise if the recorder.exe + .dll can be run from any location or should they be in the C:\Program Files\Ranorex 1.2\Bin\ directory?

Thanks
James

Recorder Update

Post by James Hirst » Thu Jul 05, 2007 11:23 am

Having tried putting the Recorder.dll in the C:\Program Files\Ranorex 1.2\Bin\Python2.4, I now see generated python, C++ & C# source code in the recorder ouput window.

However the generated file - test.py - is always empty with the message:
"# -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# No source code available in this version!
# For more information please visit www.ranorex.com
# -------------------------------------------------------------------------------"

The Recorder can be run from any location, but it needs some C++ runtime libraries. In some machines you will get the following error:

"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem."

Please install the Visual C++ Redistributable Package SP1 (VCRedist_x86.exe) if you get this error.
This package is 2.6 MByte and will install some Visual C++ libraries on your machine.
It can be downloaded from the Microsoft download site:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
... no Python / C++ / C# source code is generated!!
We can generate the Source code only after a Replay action.
We have to check some information so please make a recording and replaying first.
