Enabling Support for the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge Browser

The msedgedriver.exe WebDriver necessary for playback on the Chromium-based Edge browser is not shipped with Virtualize. You can download the driver from the following website:

Save the driver to the <INSTALL>\plugins\com.parasoft.ptest.libs.web_<VERSION>\root\browsers\webdriver\edge\x86\ directory to enable support for the Chromium-based Edge browser.

Troubleshooting Playback in Microsoft Edge

SOAtest/Virtualize cannot launch Edge when the SOAtest/Virtualize process is running with privileged access. Take the following actions to resolve this issue:

  1. Use a non-administrator account or an administrator account with User Account Control notifications turned on to run SOAtest/Virtualize as a non-privileged process.
  2. Enable user Account control notifications for administrator users:

    Non-Windows Home edition:

    1. Open the Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) and enable User Account Control Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account under Local Policies/Security options.

    Windows Home edition:

    1. Use regedit.exe to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    2. If it does not exist, create the DWORD value "FilterAdministratorToken"
    3. Set the value of "FilterAdministratorToken" to 1
  3. If launching SOAtest/Virtualize from a Scheduled Task during startup, ensure that the Run only when user is logged on option is enabled.
