  • Problem Description

    Not really sure if this is a bug or not, so if someone could double check it, it would be great. But using NWjs Open browser doesn't seem to work for me.

    If I preview it In Chrome or IE, it doesn't open the URL and no error is given, nothing happens.

    In NWjs if I use a path like "C:\Users\" or an URL, I get the following error:

    However in NWjs it does actually work in both cases. Even though it gives the error message.

    Attach a Capx

    Not really needed for testing.

    Just add NWjs to a project and then use Open browser with an url.

  • Closing, please always attach a .capx to every report, it is mandatory. I tried a quick test using the Browser object's 'Open URL in new window' and it worked in both Chrome and NW.js without any error appearing. I am guessing you did something different to me, which is why we always need your .capx.
