Windows Application Driver

Windows Application Driver (WinAppDriver) is a service to support Selenium-like UI Test Automation on Windows Applications. This service supports testing Universal Windows Platform (UWP), Windows Forms (WinForms), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and Classic Windows (Win32) apps on Windows 10 PCs.

Install & Run WinAppDriver

  1. Download Windows Application Driver installer from https://github.com/Microsoft/WinAppDriver/releases
  2. Run the installer on a Windows 10 machine where your application under test is installed and will be tested
  3. Enable Developer Mode in Windows settings
  4. Run
    WinAppDriver.exe
    from the installation directory (E.g.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Application Driver
    )

Windows Application Driver will then be running on the test machine listening to requests on the default IP address and port (

127.0.0.1:4723
). You can then run any of our Tests or Samples.
WinAppDriver.exe
can be configured to listen to a different IP address and port as follows:
WinAppDriver.exe 4727
WinAppDriver.exe 10.0.0.10 4725
WinAppDriver.exe 10.0.0.10 4723/wd/hub

Note: You must run

WinAppDriver.exe
as administrator to listen to a different IP address and port.

Repository Content

This repository includes the following content: * Samples - used to showcase various commands and operations such as opening applications, finding elements, clicking elements, typing keystrokes, reading texts, etc; and can be run against built-in Windows 10 applications such as Alarms & Clock, Calculator, and Notepad. * Tests - used to verify the functionality of Windows Application Driver itself. The tests cover each API endpoints extensively and also against all basic UI control scenario, and demonstrate how to invoke certain command in C#. In addition, they show how to interact with some more complex UI elements such as DatePicker, SplitViewPane, Slider, etc. * UI Recorder - standalone tool that aims to provide users a simpler way of creating automaton scripts by recording UI events performed by the user and generating XPath queries and C# code on the fly. Read more about it on our Wiki. * Docs - subdirectory hosting WinAppDriver related documentation.
