Flash\Flex Application identification issue

Post by sumit_mbse » Wed May 06, 2015 4:59 pm


I have a flash application that I am trying to automate using Ranorex. I had flash player version14 which is compatible with ranorex.
Everything was fine till now but suddenly my company enforced a policy to upgrade flash to version 17 across organization. Due to this my flash is upgraded to 17 and there is no way to downgrade it. Ranorex is unable to recognize objects on this version and everything seems stuck.

Can anyone help me know how to have ranorex identify the application with falsh player 17 installed on your IE?

Your help is really appriciated as this is real urgent for me.

thanks in Advance

Please state the Ranorex version and also try to re-run the instrumentation wizard on the browser. that sometimes helps.

Ranorex supports Flash SWF versions > 18 since Ranorex 5.1.0. http://www.ranorex.com/free-trial/relea ... html#c7301

As zivshapirawork stated, please provide the following information any time you raise an issue:

Ranorex version
Windows version
SUT technology (in this case Flash/Flex) (e.g. Java, HTML, WPF, etc.)
Full text of any error messages
Shortcuts usually aren't...
