Is there a way to make Blue Prism work on Google Chrome browser for Robotic Process Automation?


The newest version if Blue Prism (6.4) has a build in object to work with Google Chrome. And you can still use Region Mode to work with almost everything (but it has it’s limitations).

Hello Karthik,

At present Blue Prism supports only Internet Explorer (6 to 10 and 11 from v4.2.21) for HTML integration, but other techniques such as Active Accessibility (AA) and Surface Automation (SA) may enable automation of applications in other browsers like Chrome or Firefox.

Blue Prism v4.2 and v5 do not yet have full support for the Google Chrome browser. However, Blue Prism can be set up to utilise Chrome’s accessibility layer should you need to test an interaction to see if it will work in your circumstances. All versions of Blue Prism that have Active Accessibility support will be able to make use of this feature.

To enable accessibility in Chrome the browser must be started using a specific command-line parameter, so although attaching will still be possible once the application has been launched in this way, the launch process must make use of the accessibility parameter. This can be done via an additional Business Object, a Code Stage, or even batch file.

The Application Modeller must be set up in this way:-

  1. Create a new Object as a Windows Application type
  2. Select the option to launch the application from an executable file
  3. Browse for the location of the “chrome.exe” application (in the Program Files area by default)
  4. Add the following command-line parameter:
  5. Ensure that the correct Application Manager Mode is set to match your operating system (32-bit or 64-bit). I hope this will helpful for you
