MS Edge Ranorex Spy

Post by RTJakobs » Tue Dec 14, 2021 3:52 pm

unfortunately Ranorex Spy does not recognize my web application under test.

When I use the Spy, Ranorex generally finds the page, but after that only "Container "Intermeditate D3D Window" .
I tried with the help of the Instrumation Wizard to install the appropriate plugin, but this was grayed out.

With the browsers IE, Firefox and Chrome there are no problems.

I use Ranorex 9.3.1.

With kind regards

If the option in instrumentation wizard is disabled, it means that the browser is not detected (most probably because of corrupted registry). Have you tried to uninstall Edge and install it back? And don't forget, it should be Chromium-based Edge, not the old Edge, which I believe is no longer supported! ;)
