Unable to record steps

Hi,

I am unable to record any test steps in Katalon studio, when I click on record (chrome) option within the app, I get the attached error. Any idea what’s causing this error? I do have installed the chrome extension. Would really appreciate some help on this, thanks!

Your computer doesn’t allow you to install unpacked extension from Katalon Studio. In this case you should ask your system admin to take a look at this.

Hi Alex,

In my Organization set up, we are not allowed to run executable from temp location. I need to determine if we can
launch the extension not from the temp location. It
is possible to run the files from ….\internal by copying them to
another location outside of temp? Will it work? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

The issue of loading unpacked extensions on Spy, Record, Smart Wait features is currently resolved by Katalon Compact Utility.
Please find its information here: https://docs.katalon.com/katalon-studio/docs/katalon-compact-utility.html#configuring-and-using-katalon-compact-utility-with-chrome-profile.

Thank you all for your attention,
