VM seems to lose instrumentation on restore

Post by bhoppe » Fri Nov 16, 2012 5:30 pm


I have a VM that we run Flash/Flex tests using Ranorex. I've setup the VM by installing Ranorex and then running the instrumentation wizard for Flash/Flex on IE. I then take a snapshot of the VM to have a clean state with Ranorex.

My test the restores the VM to this snapshot and then deploys the test to the VM to run. I do this several times. For the most part it works fine but then after several iterations of this the test stop being able to find Flex elements.

Any ideas why at times the Flex recognition would stop working like this?

In order to analyze this issue we would need more information.
Which Ranorex version are you using?
What virtualization software are you using?

Could you please provide a Snapshot of your application?
(Take a look at Creating Ranorex Snapshot Files in our User Guide).
Please provide the report with the error message as well.
