Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

It is observed quite frequently that OpenScript of Oracle Application Testing Suite would not capture the steps performed on a browser when you try to record the test scenario on an Internet Explorer browser.

Some of the issues faced are:

  • Openscript records only one statement which is closing of browser, irrespective of what ever operations you perform on the application under test.
  • Internet Explorer browser crashes when recording the steps of a test case over the browser using Openscript ( i.e. IDE of Oracle Application Testing Suite )

In order to solve this issue, we should make sure that Openscript IDE is always run as Administrator.

Step by Step Instructions to make OpenScript run as administrator always:

  • Open Windows Start Menu for Operating Systems below Windows 8 ( i.e. for Windows 7, XP , etc.. )
  • Type OpenScript
  • Right click on OpenScript and select Properties context menu

  • Open Windows Start Menu for Operating Systems below Windows 8 ( i.e. for Windows 7, XP , etc.. )
  • Type User Account Control Settings and select “Change User Account Control Settings” option
  • You must be in a position where it says “Always Notify”
