  • Confusing instructions regarding the Edge Browser and UFT
Question ID: 107300

When looking at the help section for using the Edge Browser and UFT, it says to get your Edge version and then download the WebDriver.exe file and rename it and put it into the UFT install bin folder. But that didn’t work for me and I can’t find a download for WebDriver.exe for my version.

For this to work, you need to get the Edge Version:

1. Open Microsoft Edge
2. Select ''More'' menu option (upper right menu ...)
3. Go to ''Settings''
4. Look under ''About this app''
5. Build number used by Web Add-in documentation, is 2nd set of numbers provided within displayed build number.
6. For example, if it displays ''Microsoft Edge 20.10240.16384.0'', then version to analyze is ''10240'', also seem as ''*.10240''

Next, go to and download the WebDriver that corresponds to your version of Edge. There are currently 4 options. 2 of the options will download a MicrosoftWebDriver.msi file, while the other 2 will download a MicrosoftWebDriver.exe file

If .msi is downloaded, run it and it will install MicrosoftWebDriver.exe in C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Web Driver (or your customized location). This .exe file will need to be copied to your bin folder.

If .exe is downloaded, the .exe will probably need to be unblocked. Right-click the MicrosoftWebDriver.exe file and choose Properties. On the General tab, check the Unblock option then OK. Put this file in your bin folder.

Once this is complete, Edge can be launched either from Record>Record and Run Settings or by right clicking the Agent Icon on the desktop and getting the ''target'' path and using SystemUtil.Run:

SystemUtil.Run '''', ''''
