|WebDriver with Microsoft Edge (until Edge Version 44)|
Because Microsoft Edge comes without pre-installed WebDriver support, the WebDriver integration needs to be installed manually once.
On Windows 10 1809 and 1903, the Microsoft WebDriver is a so called "Feature on Demand". Navigate to
"Windows-Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Manage optional features and installing" and add the
"Microsoft WebDriver" as new feature (Alternatively, run the following in an elevated command prompt:
DISM.exe /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Microsoft.WebDriver~~~~0.0.1.0).
On older Systems (up to Windows 10-1803) navigate your web browser
to the Microsoft WebDriver website
and download and install the WebDriver version matching your operating system.
In addition, a loopback exemption needs to be defined for the Edge browser. Windows 10 uses an isolation technology that may prevent requests being sent from Edge to QF-Test. Although this does not always happen, we recommend enabling the loopback before testing with Microsoft Edge.
To enable loopback for Edge, open a command shell with administration rights and execute:
CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n="Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe"
To disable loopback for Edge, open a command shell with administration rights and execute:
CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -d -n="Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe"
Details about for enabling loopback for Windows apps can be found in the Windows Dev Center.
After successful installation you can also use Microsoft Edge as browser in your tests.
