WaitForExists Causing Application Problems

Post by DavidHay » Wed Feb 07, 2018 4:20 pm

I came across a strange problem during testing an installation process. I have automated our application installation process using normal button clicks. A simple Click next, next, next, wait for install and then click finish. On our latest installation package we use a newer version of SQL, which is silently installed. With the newer version of SQL the Ranorex WaitForExists method causing the installer to freeze. I have proven it is Ranorex by replacing the WaitForExists with a hard coded delay. Everytime the WaitForExists somehow breaks our application install and it eventually fails to respond. Has anyone come across a similar problem to this before?
