Windows

Tips & Tricks

  • Use chocolatey for installation of tools. It helps. A lot.

Specific problems

  • Chrome won't start. (Issues: #202, #74)

    1. Set CHROME_BIN like this
      > export CHROME_BIN='C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe'
    2. Increase the timeout from 5000ms to 10000ms. At 5000ms, timeouts occurred and the retry logic kicks in and eventually resolves after two to three tries.
