Unable to open browser; This version of ChromeDriver only supports Chrome version 77

Hi guys!

I upgraded to MacOS Catalina yesterday and for some reasons, Katalon fails to run all of my tests in Chrome. It cannot even pass through the first test case; nor can it even start the Web Recording process. The Chrome browser does not open at all.

Unable to open browser with url: '' (Root cause: com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException:

I was wondering if you guys are experiencing the same, and if you guys have any idea as to how I can resolve this matter.

In the meantime, I’ll do some research about it and update this thread accordingly.

Thank you!

Yes, same errors since midnight. We use windows server 2016 and have Chrome 79 installed. I updated Katalon Studio and Katalon Runtime to latest version - it did not solve the issue.

Chrome 78 works fine. Chrome 79 breaks.

Hi,

Also experienced the same issue. Anyone knows how to fix this?

EDIT: Already updated webdriver and it works thanks

Please also check in task manager … I had more than 80 chromedriver instances running in parallel! you can terminate them all using Katalon Studio functionality.

Hello ,
I am running in same issue .
Did anyone come up with solution ?
