Hi ,

I am trying to run my  Test Suite having  50 test cases . As I started test Suite Execution ,I can not use my system for other things like my Skype,Outlook ,Lync etc. If I try to use Skype  I will get following kind of exception

Started InternetExplorerDriver server (32-bit)

org.openqa.selenium.UnhandledAlertException: Modal dialog present:

So I want to do my work on my system and Test Cases should run in Background .How can I handle such situation ?  Please give me solution ASAP (If Possible with Code )

Hi Jogesh,

You need to implement Grid and run your test on different machine. Second way of doing this is to use headless browser, not sure if it works but still you can give it a try.

Close the question as well.
