Instrumentation failed/Devices status error

Post by ayip » Thu Feb 20, 2014 4:38 pm

I'm new with Ranorex. I'm doing evaluation Ranorex to see if it can fit in our application automation tool in Android. So, we can buy it for our test team. First I add my Android devices with USB connection, it sees the devices, but the device shows "Error". Second, I try to launch the instrumentation wizard anyway, and browser to my .apk file. There is an error occurred complaining the following:
-The APK is not obfuscated
-You are using API level 8 or above
-Uninstrumented APK version is installed on the device

Hi ayip,

Which error do you get when your device is connected via USB?
Concerning the second issue there is a similar post in our forum which can be found using the following URL: ... t4092.html
Please let me know if this doesn't solve your problem.
