Java Question

selenium exceptionin java (org.openqa.selenium.remote.UnreachableBrowserException)

I know there are number of threads running but none of them has a solution of this problem. I am trying to get a aspx page using selenum. But it throws UnreachableBrowserException at this line of code

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
. An instance of chrome is opening but then later on after few seconds it throws the exception I have mentioned above.

Here is my sample code.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe");

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
driver.get("http://some aspx page with form");
System.out.println("!!!!! Got the page !!!!!");
driver.close();
driver.quit();


Following is the stacktrace.

Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.remote.UnreachableBrowserException: Could not start a new session. Possible causes are invalid address of the remote server or browser start-up failure.

I have red number of articles but couldnot find any solution. My chrome version is 33.0.1750.154 m.

Answer

I have downloaded chromedriver and instead of setting path to chrome.exe I set the path to chromedriver.exe and it worked. C:\Program Files(x86)\chromedriver\chromedriver.exe
