  • 1.  System.Exception: Fail to start Chrome navigator - Cannot start the driver service

    Posted 25 days ago

    Hi,

    I'm having issues with Chrome.

    This morning, this issue appeared:

    System.Exception: Fail to start Chrome navigator ---> OpenQA.Selenium.WebDriverException: Cannot start the driver service on http://localhost:53791/

    I have already followed these instructions:

    Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

    IBM RPA Studio Version: 23.0.15

    Google Chrome Version: 126.0.6478.115 

    Does anyone have any idea what to do in this case?

    Thanks!

    Hi Eveline, a temporary solution of your problem can be concluded to the follow steps:

    1. Go to https://googlechromelabs.github.io/chrome-for-testing
    2. Download - 
      chromedriver win64 https://storage.googleapis.com/chrome-for-testing-public/126.0.6478.126/win64/chromedriver-win64.zip
    3. Go to C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\IBM Robotic Process Automation\packages\23.0.13.0 - copy above zip and paste it in this folder.
    4. Rename  old exist  chromediver.exe - for instance oldChordirer.exe or whatever name you want.
    5. Get new chromedriver.exe from downloaded zip and copy pasted it in the same folder

    That solution is temporary because when  the new Chrome version update is available, the situation will  recur. A possible solution may be to stop  Chrome from updating  in the future.

    Hello Alexander!
    I had already performed this procedure, but thank you for taking the time to answer this question.
    @YASEMİN ALADI I solved the problem by reinstalling the application from scratch and deleting all logs.
