WPF application that opens via IE browser in Remote Desktop without Internet connection


I’m working on a remote desktop connection on which I have no internet connection and limited admin rights. The developer mode is turned on but with Error code 0x800f0954.

I want to test a wpf application that opens via an IE browser. To run the application you need to download it every time you want to use it. The IE browser is a browser that only connects with the intranet of the company.

When I create a new testcase and I want to use Record Windows Actions, I get a warning 'Unable to start application: Reason. Connection refused: connect
Build info: version: ‘3.141.59’, revision: ‘e82be7d358’, time: ‘2018-11-14T08:25:53’
System info: host: ‘XXXXXX’, ip: ‘XX.XX.XXX.XX’, os.name: ‘Windows 10’, os.arch: ‘amd64’, os.version: ‘10.0’, java.version: ‘1.8.0_181’
Driver info: driver.version: WindowsDriver ’

In the field ‘Application file’ I’ve selected the Windows Executable File of the WPF application.

What am I missing to get the Record Windows Action working?

I’ve set up the WinAppDriver and set it to localhost instead of an ip.

Hi @f.jacobs,

To start recording with Katalon Windows Recorder, you need to start the WinAppDriver first. Please follow read guide to install and start the WinAppDriver first: https://docs.katalon.com/katalon-studio/docs/setup-winappdriver.html#set-up-windows-application-driver-on-a-local-windows-10-machine
