Start Portable Version of Chrome in the Context of Ranorex

Post by Stefan Schnell » Tue Aug 22, 2017 10:49 am

Hello community,

I use portable versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox. If I want to record my activities in one of these browsers, Ranorex Studio tells me, that it can't find it. Is it possible to configure the path to the browser executables chrome.exe and firefox.exe manually? Or is a standard installation indispensable?

Thanks for hints and tips.

Cheers
Stefan

Hi,

Yes, you need to configure the browser path manually in registry. Here is how to do this for Firefox...

I guess Chrome has similar path in registry?
