NPAPI plugins don't work on Chrome version 42 and higher.

Any suggestions except of using different browser?

      Thanks for your comment.

      I have read this info, and just wanted to know other's opinions. Test Complete doesn't work properly in my app when I use IE (worked with keyword tests). And now I won't be able to use Chrome for testing?

        SmartBear supplies patches for each version of Chrome:


        When Chrome gets to version 45 I would assume SmartBear will roll out their NPAPI replacement. But that would be a question for SmartBear support. 


        If I read your message correctly you say that keyword tests worked in IE but now your tests are not working. Perhaps you can post for some help with that issue?

      Hi. Thanks to All who replied.

      I did all changes, and enabled this plugin in Chrome. And it does work for me.

      I just recently started to get this message when open Chrome: "This site uses a plugin (SmartBear TestComplete 10) that will soon be unsupported". And when click on "Learn more",  there is a description on how to TEMPORARILY enable NPAPI plugins. ( as I said, I did all these changes and it's enabled  ) . And a message saying: " After the release of Chrome version 45, you’ll need to use an alternate web browser to load content that requires a NPAPI plugin."


      So my question is , if Test Complete still will work when  Chrome V45 released?


      Many thanks
