My Code to launch Browser:

System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver", "C:\\selenium-drivers\\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe");
DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities("MicrosoftEdge", "", Platform.WINDOWS);
driver = new EdgeDriver(capabilities);
driver.navigate().to("https://xyz.com");
driver.manage().window().maximize();

Browser & System Info:

  • Edge Browser Version: 25.10586.0.0

System Info:

  • Edition: Windows 10 Pro
  • Version: 1511
  • OS Build: 10586.420

Selenium Version:

  • 2.53.0

Driver:

I tried using both "10240" & "10585" versions of WebDriver but keep getting below error. The edge browser does launch & dies with below error :

Reason for Failure:  Unknown error (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information) Command duration or timeout: 5.03 seconds Build info: version: '2.53.0', revision: '35ae25b', time: '2016-03-15 16:57:40' System info: host: 'shaider-Win10', ip: '10.0.181.141', os.name: 'Windows 10', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '10.0', java.version: '1.8.0_91' Driver info: org.openqa.selenium.edge.EdgeDriver

  • I had the exact same issue (unknown error). A colleague with the latest build (13494 or so) gets it running. You should try asking on the official EdgeDriver forum. – FDM Apr 15 '17 at 13:49

As per my opinion, most of the engineers in QA companies are creating script on Chrome and other browsers, as Selenium web driver have some issue with EDGE browser in locating the web elements. Further, i have tried to run on EGDE browser and it is working fine on my machine.

Below is the code to launch on EDGE browser:

import org.openqa.selenium.edge.EdgeDriver; 
System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver",""MicrosoftWebdriver.exe path in your machine");
WebDriver driver = new EdgeDriver();
driver.get("your link");

Note:Make sure that your system installed with MicrosoftWebdriver.

Below are the Browser and System Info:-

EGDE Browser Version:25.10586.672.0

OS: Windows 10 Pro

Selenium Version:2.53

You can dynamically download edge driver and use like this. Please modify code according to your need, i tried my best to give answer according to your question with easy way.

config.properties

edgeDriverURL=https://download.microsoft.com/download/F/8/A/F8AF50AB-3C3A-4BC4-8773-DC27B32988DD/MicrosoftWebDriver.exe#17134

Java code:

if (ConfigProperties.getStringProperty("browser").contains("edge")) {

            driverVersion = ConfigProperties.getStringProperty("edgeDriverURL").split("#")[1];
            driverDirectory = ConfigProperties.getBaseDirectory() + "/conf/" + OperatingSystem.getOSType().toString().toLowerCase() + "/" + ConfigProperties.getStringProperty("browser") + "/" + driverVersion;

            switch (OperatingSystem.getOSType()) {

                case WINDOWS10: default:
                    driverFile = "MicrosoftWebDriver.exe";
                    driverFilePath = driverDirectory + "/" + driverFile;
                    try {
                        driverURL = new URL(ConfigProperties.getStringProperty("edgeDriverURL").split("#")[0]);
                        driverBinary = new File(driverFilePath);
                    } catch (MalformedURLException e1) {
                        e1.printStackTrace();
                    }
                    break;
            }

            try {
                if (!driverBinary.exists() && !driverBinary.isFile()) {
                    setupDir(driverDirectory);
                    downloadFile(driverURL, driverDirectory, driverFile);
                }
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

            System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver", driverFilePath);
            webDriver = new EdgeDriver();
            Dimension dimension = new Dimension(500, 500);
            webDriver.manage().window().setSize(dimension);
            webDriver.manage().window().maximize();
