I am facing a problem with IExplorer 8. I am not able to use the WR built-in function web_browser_invoke(). I have used it in the following way:
rc = web_browser_invoke(IE,"http://www.google.com");
But as a result a browser is opened but it does not direct to the given URL. This problem is not there with IExplorer 6 and 7.
Please advise if this is a problem in compatibility, with the installation or something else.
When you are executing WinRunner Scripts on IE8 you need to do some setting on Internet properties.
You must disable Enable tab browsing.
Tools > Internet Options > uncheck Enable tabbed browsing.
