Unable to open chromium portable


#1

Hello,
I’m trying to open Control Tower / Platform Monitor, and when I click in the icon, chronium portable start to open, but then nothing happens.
Can I change the default browser so, instead of chronium, it opens firefox?
Is it possible to open the control tower directly in the browser?

Thanks for your help.

@Luna_Fidalgo_Manchon - Cromium Portable is a default browser for opening Control Tower / Platform Monitor.

But you can open these apps using any browser:
http://localhost:15280/workfusion/login
http://localhost:15100/

I downloaded and installed RPAExpress. But after starting the control when I click on it, it opens chromium portable and theres only a blank webpage. Can someone help me. Have I missed out on something?

Iam using RPA Express 1.1.6 and iam trying to open a website URL using chromium portable V 58.0.3004.3(64-bit).
But chromium does not launch and an error pops up indicating that a higher version of chromium portable is required.

Here are the first few lines of the error:

Error executing OpenURLAction

Hi Maryia,

Thanks for the reply.
However, my question is different. Iam using RPA Recorder option and trying to open a website URL using chromium portable browser. Iam using “Open website” option for this in the RPA Recorder.

Chromium portable tries to launch but an error pops up:
Caused by: org.openqa.selenium.SessionNotCreatedException: session not created exception: Chrome version must be >= 58.0.3029.0
(Driver info: chromedriver=2.30.477700 (0057494ad8732195794a7b32078424f92a5fce41),platform=Windows NT 10.0.14393 x86_64)error1.txt (11.3 KB)

I have re-attached the complete error logs. Can you pls check?
The problem seems to be that a higher version of chromium has to be installed - v 58.0.3029.0. How to fix this?.
BTW, my post got merged into this older post wherein the two posts are completely dissimilar and my question requires separate investigation.

I was able to fix the issue by downloading a newer version of chromium portable and using it for the RPA Recorder. Thanks for any analysis carried out.


#9

Every other time when i open the chrome, it gives me an error “Chrome did not close properly”.

I had to restart the automation again.

Any settings/ best practice i need to follow?
