Unhandled exception in Ranorex Studio

Post by mmackay23 » Mon Sep 13, 2010 12:11 pm

Trying to run a trial version of Ranorex Studio 2.3.4 on a Windows Server 2003 SP2 OS. It has never run on this server before.
Error message: "An unhandled exception has occurred in Ranorex Studio. This is unexpected and we'd ask you to help us improve Ranorex Studio by reporting this error to the Ranorex Studio team"

Main error:

Thanks for posting the Bug Report. Have you installed .Net Framework 3.5 on this computer?
If not please install the framework and try it again. Because the error message looks like that the framework is missing.

Thanks for the quick reply to my question.
No I don't think the server has .NET Framework version 3.5 installed. I will get the framework updated and report back.
