UFT 14.03 Build 3501 not recognizing Google Chrome 71.0.3578.98

Jump to solution

Just as the title says.  Was working halfway through the day yesterday and suddenly stopped recognizing Chrome.  When using the object spy it only sees the entire page as a WinObject identified as Chrome Legacy Window.  I do have the add-in installed, I even uninstalled the add-in and reinstalled and still doesn't identify.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  If more info is needed please let me know.

This has been resolved.  I reverted the 2 chrome flags I changed back to their default value and my script is back working.

Same here. I am dead in the water right now. One thing I did do yesterday was install UFT 14.03 patch 3. Prior to this everything was working fine. Is perhaps UFT 14.03 patch 3 the culprite?

Doubt it as we did NOT install the UFT patch and ran into this issue starting yesterday afternoon.   I think the extension needs to be updated - but since there isn't one as far as I know I think we need to revert Google chrome back.

I re-installed UFT. Also downgraded to several different versions of Chrome. Still not working. So I wouldn't waste the time trying to downgrade anything.

also encountered the same issues - we have found that downgrading Chrome to version 64 seemed to work. bit bizarre that it broke almost overnight....

This is caused by a silent patch that has rolled out to address fullscreen and popup sandboxing issues with extensions using gesture APIs. A chromium forum engineer posted the changed code which directed me in how to fix it.

-> Open chrome://flags.

-> Search for "Touch events API" and set it to "Enabled"

-> Search for "User Activation V2" and set it to "Enabled"

-> Click the restart chrome prompt.

 

If you are interested, the patch code that fixed (but broke) extension gestures API: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/6b20212bdffccd581703de1f229921151ea4750b/extensions/renderer/bindings/api_request_handler.cc#264

Hi, do you still have the forum discussion link? I do wonder why chrome do such sudden change and without noticing... It's causing panic here.
