I've opened a program I wrote in Visual Studio 2017 and it throws an exception on the first line of Ranorex usage (where you'd get the trial dialog if you didn't have a license, and yes I have a valid license).
The error is: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: 'Access is denied'
I've researched this a bit on the web, and most of the examples I've found to resolve this problem don't apply to me. I am running Visual Studio with Administration privileges. I'm not doing anything with web or IIS, nor running on a server. I'm not trying to access a file.
The first Ranorex code I execute (aside from InitResolver(), RanorexInit() ) is to look for a DOM, e.g.:
Dim foo As Ranorex.WebDocument = Nothing foo = Host.Current.FindSingle("./dom") 'This throws the exception
I'm know this was working with an older version of Ranorex (version 8.x). I updated to 9.1 at one point and also since this is a development system for other types of coding, I've done other coding (not related to Ranorex). I've installed .NET development 4.6.2. It was not working with Ranorex 9.1 so I updated to 9.2.1 and it still doesn't work.
