    • Hi,

      Are you testing with a Grid configuration or is this local to the same host as the MicrosoftWebDriver.exe?  Also, have you verified the version of the MicrosoftWebDriver.exe you are using is compatible with your OS version?  I double click the exe to make sure it runs as a quick test for compatibility.

      Can you provide your OS release version and the version of the MicrosoftWebDriver.exe you are using?

    • Greetings sir,

      I am not testing with Grid configuration.
      OS release version - 1709 (OS build - 16299.125) Edition - Windows 10 Pro
      Version of MicrosoftWebDriver.exe - 10.0.14393.0

      On double clicking the MicrosoftWebDriver.exe following error is seen -

      MicrosoftWebDriver.exe - Ordinal Not Found

      The ordinal 530 could not be located in the dynamic link library

    • If MicrosoftWebDriver.exe does not run properly by double clicking, I.e. running it directly, that means that version is not compatible with your Windows version.  Can you verify your Windows 10 version matches the version from the download page?

      To get your extended Windows 10 version:  Win + S and type ‘winver’ without the quotes and hit enter.

      I see in the logs that the MicrosoftWebDriver version is for 14393.  Updating to the 16299 should correct this issue.
