Bring app to foreground

Post by armstronghm24 » Thu Nov 09, 2017 7:00 pm

I am using Ranorex 7.0.0. When I have used Ranorex in the past, the application I am testing is brought to the foreground. Recently, I have been having issues getting Ranorex to bring the application to the foreground when ever performing actions on that application. Have any default settings changed recently? Or is there a setting that I might have changed on accident? What controls this mechanism?

Ranorex 7.0.0 is already outdated and I'm sorry to say this, somewhat buggy. You should really consider updating it with, at least, 7.1 or even better, most recent 7.2.1. Then check if your problem is still reproducible.
