Ranorex studio is ignoring breakpoints

Post by ian807 » Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:40 pm

I'm running Ranorex 9.1.0
  • From the main menu, "Debug > Debugging Enabled" is checked.
    I press F7 to put a breakpoint on a line. It shows a filled, red circle, not a hollow circle.
    On the tab, I select the "Run Code" button

Expected result: The system would run to the breakpoint and highlight it.

Actual result: The system sails right past the breakpoint and runs the entire script.

Note: It doesn't matter where I put the breakpoint(s) in the script. The IDE never stops until the script completes.

I'm using breakpoints on daily basis and I've never experienced such issue. Which leads me to believe, that there is a problem with your machine (missing/corrupted runtime libs or .Net) or Ranorex installation itself? Have you tried to completely uninstall and reinstall Ranorex? At next, please check, if there are installed all required runtime libs on your machine, eventually, reinstall them:

BTW, have you tried debugging with newly created solution and on another computer?
