Remote Standalone Spy

Post by CWhiting » Wed Mar 04, 2020 8:54 pm

Can Ranorex Spy be run on a remote machine without installing all of the Ranorex development?
I have an element that is not being found on a remote machine and I would like to see how the path is. It is not web form.

Try creating a snapshot during runtime using the "Create snapshot" action. I like to target the root repo item as the snapshot will fail if it cant find the target item (which is generally not the root repo item). The snapshot generated (listed in the report) should give you an idea of what Ranorex is seeing at that point in time.
