If the error occurs, you must download and install the cumulative update from Microsoft.

Microsoft Edge

To record or execute your workflows using an Edge Browser, you must first install Microsoft WebDriver as a feature-on-demand for Windows.
To do this, open the Windows Power Shell as administrator and execute the following command:

DISM.exe /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Microsoft.WebDriver~~~~


If a WSUS is used in your infrastructure, an error message may appear when the command is executed.
This is because the Microsoft WebDriver is not available on your WSUS.
In this case, let your administrator know so that the Microsoft.WebDriver is available on your WSUS.

Alternatively, you can change the source setting yourself in the Local Group Policy Editor.
To do this, proceed as follows:

To do this, press the Windows + R key on your keyboard.


Enter gpedit.msc in the execute window and confirm with OK.


Now follow the path:

Computer Configuration /Administrative Templates /System /Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair.

Open the file “Specify settings for optional components installation and component repair”.

Select Windows Update instead of WSUS as the source and save the change with Apply.


Open the Windows Power Shell as administrator and execute the following command:

DISM.exe /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Microsoft.WebDriver~~~~


After that the installation is complete and the product can be used to its full extent.
