OperaDriver 1.2 With Selenium 2.32.0 on Windows 8

“Hmm, why aren’t my tests on Opera working any more?”

For those of you that want to skip to the chase and see my hack then I did this, just before I created a new OperaDriver();

driver = new OperaDriver();

And thanks to you for sticking around to see the investigation process…

Caused by: org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException:

Umm. OK. That’s new for me. I wonder how to set the platform inderal 10 mg online manually?

I jumped off to the line of code in the OperaLauncherRunner, which was an enum. Did a quick evaluate on Platform.getCurrent(); which had correctly identified my current operating system as WIN8.

But sadly the switch statement in launcherNameForOS doesn’t cater for WIN8, so I set the platform manually by changing the “os.name” property, and I set it to “windows” to pretend I’m running on XP.

driver = new OperaDriver();

I also used “win7” and pretended to be VISTA. Same result, so I thought using “windows” was probably the most explanatory in the code.

And viola. My tests were running in Opera again.
