object error message

Post by vthomeschoolmom » Wed May 20, 2015 7:52 pm

SO I am a total noob to Ranorex. I am getting an error

The control seems to be a Windows Forms control, but was not recognized as such, possibly due to a security limitation. UI element identification capabilities for this control may be limited.
If this control is a WinForms control, please make sure that the automating process has the rights to access the automated application.

This is not a windows form control. This is a plain old HMTL page. Other controls in the same hierarchy, accessed in similar manner in the repository, are not generating the same error.

Any help? Thanks.

Hi There,

I think I have seen this error mentioned in the forum thread below:

Click me

This seems to be related to one of the previous releases, what is your Ranorex Version number?

If this is not an issue related to the issue in the previous post then we might have to get a snapshot of what is going on when the error is thrown.

Hope this helps resolve the issue.

Thank you.

It would be helpful if you post a Ranorex snapshot of the element in question. Check this page how to create one...

Also, please let us know the Ranorex version you are using, OS version and browser in which you are experiencing the issue. Have you tried other browsers too?
