So I cant seem to get things working for Chrome and firefox . I think its my location and labeling thats mixed up, not sure. I could be missing something in the instructions too.
Alright here we go, if I understand correctly ( 50/50 chance here - your prob thinking less ) to get Chrome and Firefox to work in need to do the following.
Chrome and Firefox Setup
- Configure the test system to automatically log-on to an administrator account. Running “control userpasswords2” from the start menu is one way to configure it.
- Disable any screen savers (the desktop needs to remain visible for the video capture to work)
- Disable UAC (Vista or later - slide to “never notify”)
- Uninstall IE Enhanced-Security Mode (Windows Server)
- Copy the test software from the agent folder to the system (to “c:\webpagetest” for this example)
- Install the DUMMYNET ipfw driver
o Pull up the properties for the Network Adapter that is used to access the Internet
o Click “Install”
o Select “Service” and click “Add”
o Click “Have Disk” and navigate to c:\webpagetest\dummynet
o Select the ipfw+dummynet service (and click through any warnings about the driver being unsigned)
- Create a shortcut to c:\webpagetest\dummynet\ipfw.cmd in the startup folder
- Create a shortcut to c:\webpagetest\urlblast.exe in the startup folder
- Make a copy of the settings file (urlblast.ini) based on the sample
o Give it the path to the server (default configuration points to a server on the local machine)
o Configure the location to match the location defined on the server in locations.ini (if modified)
o Configure the location key to match the server in locations.ini (if modified)
o Add “Use Current Account=1” to urlblast.ini [color=#FF0000]<-is that the chrome frame in a nut shell?[/color]
- Chrome testing can be configured to run on the same machine as Internet Explorer (tests will not run at the same time, they will alternate)
- Install Chrome
- Create a shortcut to c:\webpagetest\wptdriver.exe in the startup folder
- Make a copy of the settings file (wptdriver.ini) based on the sample
o Make sure the path to the Chrome executable is correct for your system
o Configure the location to match the location defined on the server in locations.ini
o Configure the location key to match the server in locations.ini
o Copy the sample chrome extension directory to somewhere like c:\webpagetest and change the options flag to reflect the new location
- Reboot to make sure everything starts up correctly
Is that right?
