Flash/Flex Technology Limitation
Note If you need to automate an Adobe AIR application, please read how to do the instrumentation manually for Adobe AIR testing chapter.
The instrumentation Wizard tries to install the Flash Debug Player for Internet Explorer and the Flash Debug Player for Mozilla Firefox and Safari and the Flash Debug Player for Google Chrome if you like.
Moreover, you can enable the Ranorex Preloader Instrumentation. This allows you – in combination with the Flash Debug Player – to instrument your application under test without the need to alter your application.
Additionally, you can enable logging for the Flash Debug Player. This might be helpful if you have any problems with this kind of instrumentation. In such case you can then simply provide this logging information to our support team.
