Sys.Browser("chrome") works in Version 14 but not in Version 15
Recently converted from Testcomplet version 14 to Testcomplete version 15. When testing web applications we used Sys.Browser("chrome") to access and perform functions in Chrome. Since we have gone to Version 15, when I view the object browser, it displays Chrome as a process even though Firefox and IE continue to display as Browsers. Does anyone know how to make Chrome not a "process"?
Solved! Go to Solution.
TC 15 registers my browsers correctly (Edge and Chrome)
I notice that the browser loads up as a proccess and then correctly regonises as a browser after a couple of seconds, possibly this is not happening on your system.
Do you always get this ?
Load TC with NO browser and check navigate to Object browser
- Load a browser and watch the new process start and hopefully change type
Here are my system details that function as expected
Check your Project: Web testing parameters
These can change per a Major version upgrade by their default settings
versus what your current project was using on TC14.
Hi @Drew7 -
Thanks for the image - is this affecting your testing?
Also - have you tried launching the browser from TestComplete to see if this changes how its registered as opposed to launching chrome manually?
Let me know,
Great suggestions, Community! Thanks to all participants in this thread!

The real solution was to complete remove Version 14 from your pc. After that verify tcCrHost.exe is running in task manager. This executable is the relation between TestComplete and Chrome's extension. Not all browsers require an extension, however Chrome does require the extension.
