Post by superworld » Mon Dec 29, 2014 3:37 am

I have a mobile test quesion.
When I Deploy the APK,the error is:

Error occurred
Instrucmentation failed...
please make sure that
- The APK is not obfuscated.
- You are using API level 8 or above.
- No uninstrumented APK verion is installed on the device.

My android version is 4.4.2 ,Ranorex version is 4.1.5.

Can you help me find the problem? Thank you very much!

Hi Superworld,

May I ask you to provide the detailed error message, which is shown after clicking the "Details..." button in the Ranorex Instrumentation Wizard?

Thank you.

Please also update Ranorex to the latest version (5.2.1) and try to reproduce this issue. There were several fixes about android instrumentation in newer versions of Ranorex. Please find more information in our release notes.
