Unable to Instrument the Android App

Post by Subhadip » Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:00 am

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to instrument an android app, and getting an error.
Can someone help on this?

USing Ranorex Studio : 8.3.2, RxService App 2.0.3.

Let me know if you need more details.


System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file 'C:\Users\subhadipg\AppData\Local\RanorexStudio8\RxEnv\Android\temp\decomp\AndroidManifest.xml'.

At first, try to delete entire folder and try it again:
Also, please make sure you have enough rights, ideally, start Ranorex as Administrator.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
