TestComplete vs CEF – unable to navigate web objects

Hello community,

I have a desktop application with embedded CEF (CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe).

The problem is that no object bellow the Chromium browser is reachable from TestComplete.


I’ve already checked that CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe is on the TestedApps list and at least one of the conditions under “Instrument CEF application” in is true, as requested, but when I go to the object browser (or with the object spy) no page or object is identified.


I’ve also tried to launch CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe from TC as suggested by the “TestComplete Chromium embedded content detected” tooltip that shows when I try to pick an object with the object spy, with no different result.


I’m using TestComplete v14.61.294 and CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe / CefSharp.dll v99.2.90.0


Any ideas on to get TestComplete to be able to go past the Chromium browser? Thanks!
