Unable to open html report in Chrome

Post by jojomonsta » Fri Feb 10, 2017 11:56 am

I have been unable to find anything online to help me through this, so I am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction on here.

I need to generate a report in .html format so that I can send a couple of example copies out to the business and project team.
I have changed the file extension via Properties>Reports and changed .rxlog to .html.

I can still open in Ranorex, as expected, and I can open in Firefox.

I cannot get it to open in Chrome though, and this is our default browser in most cases.

This is the message I am getting

As you can see, all the data is in the same folder, and this is where I am trying to open it from

What am I missing/doing wrong!? :?

Hi,

This is a Chrome security thing. You just need to start Chrome with --allow-file-access-from-files option. Just make sure Chrome is completely terminated first (via Task Manager).

See this post for more details:

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

Thanks for your prompt reply. I did see this post but didn't think it related to my issue. Apologies for the duplication :)
