Hi all,

 

is there a timeline for the EI Webdriver and will this be implemented by Microsoft like the old one.

 

Best Regards

@Enrique Medina we will be shipping MSEdgeDriver very soon. In the meantime, you can use ChromeDriver with this Preview by pointing the driver to msedge.exe binary.

@johnjansenUnfortunately, using the latest Chromedriver (2.46 or 74.0.3729.6) leads to "org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: unknown error: unrecognized Chrome version: Edg/74.1.96.24"

How can I fix this?

@BPascal I posted in the other issue, but the new driver is now available: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/webdriver/#downloads

@johnjansen Any plans for webdriver for MacOS?

Absolutely, @anna_sway. We are working out our shipping mechanisms, but do plan on having it downloadable in the near future.

@johnjansenThanks for the new downloads.

 

I'm just a bit surprised to find the Mac-Webdriver 76.0.174.0 in the file named https://msedgewebdriverstorage.blob.core.windows.net/edgewebdriver/76.0.174.0/edgedriver_win64.zip  I guess that's not intended, is it?

@BPascal yeah, that's a bug in our publishing pipeline. We should have it fixed today, hopefully. You should be able to use the previous exe with current builds, though.

@BPascal this is fixed now. Be sure to clear your cache before trying to download... thanks again for the feedback!
