Yes this is common issue when you use IE.

Open regedit.exe

Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones

So Zones will contain 0,1,2,3,4 and on right hand side three columns will be visible as soon as you click on 0 i.e. Name Type Data

Now in Name column look for 2500 Double click it. Put Value data as 3 and Base as Hexadecimal

You did this for 0.

Now repeat the same steps for 1,2,3,4..

Do this for all i.e. 0,1,2,3,4,5 => Change all 2500's value data to 3.

After that run this code.

public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {

System.setProperty("", "D:\\Selenium\\CP-SAT\\IEDriver\\IEDriverServer.exe");

WebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();

It will run on IE. You need a IEDriverServer.exe as i have shown in path, which will run your IE browser.

Reply to me for further query. I ran the above code in eclipse and it ran successfully.

Happy learning :-)
