Yes. Updated the WebDriver Manually to the latest stable version and it worked today.


@waqas Can you please share the exact steps that needs to be performed

Yes sure.
First, go to the folder where your katalon studio is installed.
Go to configurations > Resources > drivers > chromedriver_win32.
In this above folder, you will see a chromedriver.exe file. Delete this file.

Now go to Chrome for Testing availability
Download the latest chrome driver for win32.

Paste the download chromedriver.exe file to the folder where you have deleted the previous version.

Now, restart your katalon studio if already opened.

you need to update the Katalon studio to latest version too.


Manually Download and replace it in folder , this should work
