hi all. just (finally) got a private instance set up on windows 7 64 bit. after much tinkering i've got the ie9 (didn't realise it wouldn't work with ie10 and urlblast) test working fine.
can't, though, get firefox 24 or chrome 30 to run. the test just hangs at 'Waiting at the front of the queue...'.
my wptdriver.ini looks like this
Code:
[WebPagetest]
url=http://127.0.0.1/
location=local
browser=chrome
Time Limit=120
;key=TestKey123
;Automatically install and update support software (Flash, Silverlight, etc)
software=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/software.dat

[chrome]
exe="C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
options='--load-extension="%WPTDIR%\extension" --user-data-dir="%PROFILE%" --no-proxy-server'
installer=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/browsers/chrome.dat

[Firefox]
exe="C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
options='-profile "%PROFILE%" -no-remote'
installer=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/browsers/firefox.dat
template=firefox

[Safari]
exe="C:\Program Files\Safari\Safari.exe"

[IE]
exe="C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
and locations.ini looks like this...
Code:
[locations]
1=local
2=Public_Dulles
default=local

;
; These are the top-level locations that are listed in the location dropdown
; Each one points to one or more browser configurations
;

[local]
1=local_URLBlast
2=local_WPTDriver
label=local
connectivity=LAN

[Public_Dulles]
1=WPT_Dulles_IE8
label="WebPagetest.org - Dulles, VA"

[local_URLBlast]
browser=IE 10
connectivity=LAN
latency=0
label="local - IE 10"
;browserExe=pagetest.exe
;key=TestKey123

[local_WPTDriver]
browser=Chrome,Firefox
connectivity=LAN
label="local"
i may be missing something stupid but can anyone help? i dislike ie9 and would much rather get the two other browsers running for tests.
cheers,

Your wptdriver.ini should be configured for local_WPTDriver instead of local.
that worked a treat. do appreciate it. will see a lot less IE related nonsense in my logs now.
