Please share the console logs. You can redact your sensitive information before sharing.

here you go

Note: I have "–config -webui.autoUpdateDrivers=true " on the end of the script, now the script is stalled with the message repeating with
“Chrome driver is located at: F:\Katalon_Studio_Engine\configuration\resources\temp\webdriver\chromedriver.exe”

Hi Duyluong, has there been any progress with this problem.

@Matthew_Loo ,

We tried to reproduce the issue on v8.4.0 but the issue didn’t happen. Please share more details of the test suite collection.
How many test suites in the test suite collection and the number or concurrence test suite in parallel mode?

Okay, it didn’t occur to me that the number of test suites in my test collection would cause this problem, so I pointed the runtime to another collection which only had two test suites.

Yes, it run successfully.

So it’s something to be aware of and a trap for young players.

Thanks for your help
