Ranorex Remote Recording

Post by lavanyac » Wed Jul 07, 2021 4:34 pm


I have a query w.r.t Ranorex automaton.

We have two dependent applications which are talking with each other, one in Local PC (Ranorex installed)and another one in RemotePC.
So we have given a try with Ranorex to control the application in remote pc via RDP, unfortunately, ranorex not recording each element control we executed (in repository manner), but this is capturing only RDP pc name/screen

By any chance do we have any possibility to record the elements/actions which we perform on the application running on a remote PC.

I'm sorry, but what you want is technically impossible. RDP is just a bunch of images displayed in rapid succession ;) There is nothing to record, except images. You must install Ranorex studio on the target machine and here record/manually create the steps you want. There is no way around this.
