Hi Matthew,

Looks like the downloading of the Chrome webdriver is blocked. Do you have outbound internet access on this machine?

You can always download the Chrome webdriver manually from here and point the “Open Chrome Browser” activity there (specify the webdriver path property in the properties window).

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,
Koen

It was being blocked by our proxy but downloading the driver like you suggested and pointing the node at it worked perfectly :smiley:

Thank you
