IE driver timeout Windows 10 (Root cause: org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Timed out waiting

I just tried to run my test suite in IE and edge but I keep getting error “Unable to open browser with url: ‘’ (Root cause: org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Timed out waiting for driver server to start.”

I am running windows 10 64bit (Build 14393) and Katalon 5.4.1 64bit.

When I run “c:\yourinstalldir\Katalon_Studio_Windows_64-5.4.1\configuration\resources\drivers\edgedriver\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe” from a command prompt. I get the following output
"This version of MicrosoftWebDriver.exe is not compatible with the installed version of Windows 10.

For more information, visit Bing"

Turns out I had to download the correct build of MicrosoftWebDriver.exe to match my windows build 14393 from the site Bing

Hope this helps anyone else in my situation.

I’m getting the same error in Win7 on IE, Firefox and Chrome. All had been working fine, then I had to put this aside and now I can’t run any of the tests previously created. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
