Full Version: WPT3.0 - Chrome does not launch
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I've just upgraded my server to WPT3 and I'm starting with a very simple setup: same windows server with a unique browser (Chrome).

When I use the web interface to request a new test I briefly see that the wptdriver windows shows "DNS Flush Resolver returned 1" and then nothing. Chrome is never launched.

I've put below the content of my configurations and outputs from the server.

I miss some logs to understand why my browser is not launched. It may be a privilege issue or anything else but I'm a bit blind. Is there any log file I could get about wptdriver? Or do you have any idea how what could be wrong?
