Test.exe has stopped working

Post by kathrin » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:17 pm

I am currently testing an SAP system.
One of the transactions runs for a very long time (> 1h). In the module that starts the transaction, I wait for the "successful-completed-dialogue".

When I run the test case, the transaction starts as expected, but the Ranorex program generates an error after some minutes ("Test.exe has stopped working" -> Debug or Close?).

Does anyone have any idea what this might be?

Thanks, K

At first, which Ranorex version are you using? Make sure you have latest 8.1.1. installed.

At second, you can try to increase functionexecutiontimeout value, as described here:

Instead of "Ranorex.Config7.xml", search and modify "Ranorex.Config8.xml" file. Hope this helps?
