The process with id does not exist

Post by nickjonson » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:52 am

When I wanted to check my software, I followed the steps in the forum readings, but in the end it reported the "process with id does not exist" results.

Could you please elaborate what exactly you mean by "I wanted to check my software"? Please answer the following questions...
Ranorex version?
What kind of application are you testing (desktop, web, mobile,...)?
Could you please upload a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot of your AUT)?
Please post also the xpath of failing element, as you have it stored in repository.

My guess is, that there is used ProcessID attribute in your xpaths, which is dynamic! This means it changes with each restart of tested app. Therefore, you must eliminate the processid attribute from the xpath(s) and use something else for element identification purposes. You can, for example, use processname instead, but I'm sure there are many other good attributes, which could be used for that purpose. ProcessId is definitely not the right one ;)
