Error while launching MS Edge 96.0.1054.29 with Silk4j 20.5

Hi ,

     I have the below versions on my machine and i am trying to launch MS Edge using the browser Base state method

  • Silk4j 20.5
  • MS Edge 96.0.1054.29

I have followed the steps given in the below page to support the higher version of MS Edge

Testing Additional Browser Versions (

  1. Placed the ms edge driver for version 96.0.1054.29 in the folder 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Silk\SilkTest\ng\WebDrivers\Windows\Edge\96.0.1054.29'
  2. updated the properties file in the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Silk\SilkTest\ng\WebDrivers\Common\Config\Edge'

Error message : 

  • Failed to start application 'Edge'. Window of started Edge cannot be accessed. This may be due to UAC being turned off; please make sure that UAC is enabled otherwise Edge cannot be started.

Code :

                    BrowserBaseState baseState = new BrowserBaseState("silk4j2.settings");


                     baseState.setOption(CommonOptions.OPT_SYNC_TIMEOUT, 120000);

                     baseState.setOption(CommonOptions.OPT_WAIT_RESOLVE_OBJDEF, 20000);

                     baseState.setExecutable("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft\\Edge\\Application\\msedge.exe");               

                     baseState.setWorkingDirectory("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft\\Edge\\Application");       






Please let me know the solution . I checked the 'EnableLUA' in reedit and it is enabled too
