couldn't able to run test in IE11

on Fri Feb 27, 2015 7:57 pm
hello friends,

     I couldn't able to run test on IE browser

     I am getting error "This is the initial start page for the WebDriver server."

    Can you guys please suggest to overcome the above issue.

     code:

       System.setProperty("webdriver.ie.driver", "F:\\IEDriverServer.exe");
         driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
        
         driver.get("URL");

      above code works fine for chrome and firefox.


  Thanks in advance

For the longest time, IE11 was not possible with Selenium expecially Webdriver. It was not until a few months ago that it had become possible, the reason for this being is because IE11 tacked on many new enhancements to make it still a very horrible browser. 

Here is a link to more documentation dealing with IE11:
https://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/InternetExplorerDriver#Required_Configuration

Also, I tend to have IE driver break when I try and set its properties.
This is how I have IE setup in my setup method:
Code:
            driver = new InternetExplorerDriver(dPath + @"requiredPlugins\IEdriver\x86");//PATH where the IEDriver Server is present


Your code that you posted has F drive as the location of your IE Driver. I recommend that you create a folder in your automation project to hold the driver itself.

If you left the code as is, you lost the F drive or the automation scripts need to be ran on other computers besides your own, your scripts will eat it right out the door.

The dPath is just a cSharp thing I setup so it starts in the project no matter where the project is locally downloaded to.
