Chrome example not working

Post by mnaeem » Wed Mar 10, 2021 5:18 pm

Hello,
I am trying to open chrome and visit a specific URL. I found an example Chrome Example but it is not working. I have followed the instructions of downloading chrome driver and setting its directory path.

For further information you are kindly requested to visit the below URL for a screenshot.

If you experience the "Unquoted string in JSON data only valid for dictionary names" error this means you've downloaded the wrong version of Chromedriver, or the wrong version of Chromedriver is still running. This will help.

Hi Dorian,

Thank you so much, I followed your advise and re-downloaded the older version of chrome driver which worked pretty fine.

Thanks

When the chrome example script executes, it opens the chrome window but this new chrome window shows Chrome is being controlled by automated test software can by any means we can hide this?

No, it's not possible to remove that. We cannot change that. ChromeDriver is a Google technology. It uses the WebDriver standard. We have no control over that.
