    • Hi Tim!

      Just an update, using the code from the linked issue, I was able to successfully upload a file. If you are unable to upload a file using that code then it is likely that you have misconfigured something. I am using Microsoft Edge 44.18362.1.0 Microsoft EdgeHTML 18.18362 with the Windows Feature on Demand version of MicrosoftWebDriver. To install this version of the webdriver, run the following command in an elevated command prompt: 

      DISM.exe /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Microsoft.WebDriver~~~~

      This will install the webdriver to: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe

      If this does not solve your issue then please provide me with the information requested in my prior post.


    • Hi Tim!

      For now, I will resolve this issue as "Not Reproducible". If you are still experiencing this problem then please feel free to reopen this issue with the information requested and I will resume my investigation.
