Win32 object is not being recognized

Post by Nono » Tue Nov 04, 2014 2:38 pm


I've been running a win32 test case that stimulates a few actions on my SUT. This test case is running for a long time now, no changes have occurred in the system since the test was written.
I've upgraded the Ranorex version to 5.2 last week. Ran the test that day, everything was OK. All of a sudden, today the test failed because it could not identify a MAJOR object in the SUT. When I used the track, it showed me that the once single object identified as win32 within a tree of objects is now a single object and I cannot touch it. Also a warning popup showed (see attached as well as snapshots of the previous state of the object and its current state). What happened?

Hello Noa,

It seems that Ranorex doesn't have the required security permissions. Please ensure that both processes are started as the same user.
May I ask if you start the SUT from a network drive or encrypted folder? If yes, please copy the SUT to your local drive and check if the warning still occurs.
