Ranorex isn't identifying the enter button of the app i'm testing and when running the scripts i see the error the following error.

Could you please tell us more about the tested app and what exactly you are trying to do? Ideally, post also the snapshot of the problematic element.

Also, I think you should see this post: ... NTS#p35252

Basically, if the element you are trying to access is a part of system process or another (non-instrumented) app, you can see this error. And there is unfortunately nothing you or Ranorex can do about this.

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
