It looks like you're trying to run a .exe on a linux or Mac remote agent.


You will need to configure a windows remote agent to run {{IEDriverServer.exe}} for your Selenium tests.


Thank you, Robert Watson Dev Tools Support | Atlassian

Hi Robert,

Can you please suggest how we can add this agent.

I have tried to find it on requirements tab of my Run plan but unable to find such agent but it has Windows domain agent , is it the same?.

Is there any separate request needs to raise with Atlassian to make it available or it comes with license?

I am also using xls files in my project, will windows remote driver resolve that as well?

Please suggest
