While recording and running scripts, Eggplant frequently crashes/becomes unusable. For example, while performing assisted record tasks (making a selection of an area for capturing), this happened:
It has also became unusable/crashed (with similar graphics issues as above) when:
–After a click on the “run script” button (on a script that functioned every other attempt)
–After failing to perform an action while running a script (instead of showing that “cannot find image” dialog as it normally would)
–While doing simple text edits in a script
–While scrolling through a script: http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/756/eggplanterror2.th.png
Here is some information about the machine that the script is running on:
OS: Windows XP Pro (5.1, Build 2600)
CPU: Intel Core2Duo @ 3.166GHz
Make/Model: Dell Optiplex 960
Video card: NViDIA GeForce 9300 GE, connected to two monitors via DVI (each at 1280x1024) (512 MB RAM) (driver: nv4_disp.dll Version 6.14.0011.7542 date 10/27/2008)
Here is information on my eggplant installation:
RELEASE 10.21 + 1687
Current theme: WinUXTheme
The scripts address machines with the same exact specs. The machine also addresses itself–is this advisable? Or should the SUT always be different than the system running the eggplant script?
Would you suggest updating my video card drivers? We are trying to keep changes to the system images to a minimum, but if that’s advisable it can be done. I am developing current automation in both eggplant and ranorex, and eggplant is the only program i use that experiences these graphical/stability issues.
Thanks for any help/suggestions.
