Created script by using record playback, Is is possible run

Post by Mallikarjun.naidu » Wed Apr 29, 2015 3:15 pm

Hi All,

Created script by using record playback, Is it possible run the same script on client machine.

client trying to run but Renorex getting fail for identify the Excel sheet buttons on client machine but same thing is working fine from side.
Note: I am using Citrix through connecting RDP

Problem: There is a button in excel sheet tool bar(Button:GetInwardData),As per my required it should click GetInwardData button and need to wait until GetInwardData get activate after that it should click on other button. But it is not waiting 1 minute also (even I put wait upto 6 min)...Its clicking other button.(this is the problem in client machine) where in my machine its working fine
Question: In client machine why it is not clicking GetInwardData button and why it is not waiting 2-3 minits after clicking GetInwardData button.......following functionality working fine in my PC.

It's of course possible to run Ranorex scripts on different machines. The thing is that the scripts must be optimized and the application under test (and environment) must be the same on both machines. Usually, the problem like yours is caused by small differences in the xpaths, for example by different language, regional settings, etc.

I'm afraid, there is not enough information to help you more with your issue. Could you please provide some more details?
What's your Ranorex version?
Could you please post the exact error message you are getting?
Could you please post the xpath of failing element?
Could you please post Ranorex snasphot of application under test both from source and destination machine?
You can learn how to create one here: ... files.html

It seems you updated your post with some more details. If Ranorex clicks different button on client's machine, then the application on client's machine is most probably not the same? You should definitely create a snapshot from both machines and compare the xpath of failing element in both snapshots.
