From Chrome 46.0 back to Chrome 45.0

Hi Everyone,

 

Does anyone know where can I download the Chrome 45.0?  We want to deinstall the Chrome 46.0 and reinstall Chrome 45.0, in order that the TestExecute can work with our tests again. 

 

We don't have a backup in our system. Thus, the only way to goback is install chrome 45.0.

 

Regards,

Jie

The following link has a couple of sources:

The bigger problem is preventing Chrome from auto updating. So far, nothing really seems to work. Some success was gained with the registry settings in the attached screen shot, but by this morning Chrome was back to auto updating itself. Let me know if you have any success.

So far, the only method I've had ANY success with for stopping Chrome auto-update, is to delete it's "Update" folder.

 

See here: http://community.smartbear.com/t5/Functional-Web-Testing/Chrome-v-44/m-p/102713#U102713

 

But even that is no longer working in my VM. Although it has held up on my physical PC (just checked). No idea why it's holding on one and not the other.

 

And if you get an offline installer, be careful when you install with it. The first thing it does when the install completes is goes to the "About" page and looks for updates. So kill Chrome as soon as it starts after the offline installer completes.

 

I'm also curious why you want to go back to 45 from 46? My VM is running TC11.11 and works just as well with Chrome v46 as it did with v45?

Hi All,

 

TestComplete 11.11 works fine with Chrome v. 46 without installing additional patches.

If your web tests stops working in Chrome, please make sure that TestComplete v. 11.11 is installed on your computer.

Re: From Chrome 46.0 back to Chrome 45.0

First, thanks for link to the forum thread, I missed it when doing general web searches for disabling Chrome updates. It's not that I have any desire to test Chrome 45, but I do need to control the test process, and having Chrome update in the middle of a test suite mucks up the process. The move to TestComplete 11 is a whole other set of issues. Now that it's known that Chrome updates cannot be reliably stopped, the test process will be modified to adapt to it.

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Our tests can run with TestComplete 11.11 and Chrome 46. But the same tests cannot run with the TestExecute 11.11 and Chrome 46. The playback cannot find some mapped objects. We have reported this problem to the support team. We tried Chrome 45 for the TestExecute. The tests cannot run till now.

 

 

Regards,

Jie

Re: From Chrome 46.0 back to Chrome 45.0

With Chrome 46, can we still test Flex\Flash since they no longer support the debug version of the Adobe Flash Players?

Re: From Chrome 46.0 back to Chrome 45.0

The TestComplete 11.11 documentation seems to imply that you can use the debug version of the PPAPI Opera/Chromium flash player.   It doesn't appear that the Object Browser nor Object Spy work with this though.
