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.
