Record saves invalid chars in key sequences with {up}.

Post by Drew Cooper » Tue Apr 19, 2016 1:25 am

Ranorex can't replay data it saved while recording on my app.

Apparently you're saving some whitespace and a newline when you try to capture an {up} keystroke. See attached image.

Versions of all the things:
- Ver.exe tells me that my Windows version is Version 6.1.7601, so Win7SP1.
- I'm running a trial version of Ranorex 5.4.6.
- Your about popup also tells me that I'm running .Net 4.0.30319.4200.
Let me know if you'd like to know more.

As an aside, there's s second bug revealed by this one. In the UI in my attached image I'm unable to close the properties popup. I have to force-kill the recorder.

Hello Drew Cooper,

Welcome to the Ranorex Forum!

Unfortunately, we are not aware of any similar issue at the moment. May I ask to try disabling the option Use asynchronous dispatching of mouse and keyboard events and let me know the result?

Furthermore, please let me know if you record on a local or on a virtual machine.

I look forward to hearing from you.
