Unable to find the object Sys.Browser("iexplorer") for a remote session.

When launching a script in a remote machine using TestExecute that involves working with a browser, despite the browser is correctly launched, it is not found/recognized by TestComplete. I cannot interact with the browser and it ends up throwing an error because of the wait timeout error.

However, when I run the script directly in the machine using TestComplete the execution is successful.


I suspect it is something related to remote connection permissions in the slave machine.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks much!

How exactly it is launched?

If it is launched by some continuous integration server, and might help.

Also, for example, might explain the problem and how to solve it.
