Manage DataSource

Post by aslip » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:31 am


I wonder if anyone experience that, when I press Manage DataSource button/link, Ranorex is locked. I'd like to know how I can handle this.

The screen on which the "Manage Datasource" button is displayed, is attached.

Thanks a lot,

Please answer the following questions:
- Ranorex version?
- which kind of data source are you using (excel, csv, sql)?
- could you please check (via Alt+Tab) if the Manage Data Source dialog is not behind the Ranorex Studio window? From time to time, when I try to open the Manage Data Source dialog, it miraculously opens in background. The Studio then looks as locked and the only way how to access the dialog is via Alt+Tab or Task manager dialog.
