Ranorex Remote Agent on Windows 10

Post by Ralph.Radtke » Thu Jun 29, 2017 2:21 pm

Hello,

I have a question Regarding the Securoty Policy Settings necessary to run the Ranorex Remote Agent on a Windows 10 Machine.

The Reason why i ask is the following.
It is not easy to get a user with local administration rights in our Company and we have to have a good reasons to explain to our security people why we need certain privilages.
It would therefor help me to know what security privilages the Ranorex Remote Agent Needs in order to run on a Windows 10 Installation?

Best Regards
Ralph

Hello Ralph,

I’m afraid there’s currently no way to start the Ranorex Agent without administrative privileges due to the following reasons (independent of the operating system):
  • UIAccess (for example, this is needed for automating Universal Windows Platform Apps)
  • Execution of mobile tests (especially for instrumentation of apps during runtime)
  • Memory access and data exchange between the Ranorex Studio and Agent
There’s a possibility that the Ranorex Agent can be started without admin rights in the future. This also depends on how many users request such a functionality. I would suggest adding a feature request on our Ranorex Uservoice Platform. This enables other users to vote for your feature request. The more votes a feature has, the more likely it will be considered for implementation.

I hope this information will help you.

Best Regards,
Johannes
