Seen a lot of questions regarding Selenium 2.53.1 and Firefox 47.0.1, but none in regards to the Selenium 3 Beta release. I am attempting to use the new gecko/marionette Firefox web drivers, but even though I have the driver's location in; my environment path, Firefox install folder in programs, and give the drive location in the system environment, it will still not work correctly.

Error:

The geckodriver.exe does not exist in the current directory or in a directory on the PATH environment variable. The driver can be downloaded at https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases.

Using:

Selenium 2.53.1 server

Firefox 48

Selenium 3 Beta DLLs

Window 10

Example Code 1

using OpenQA.Selenium.Firefox;

    public static class FirefoxInitialise

    {

         public static IWebDriver Driver {get; set;}

         Driver = new FirefoxDriver();

    }

Also attempted the below:

   using OpenQA.Selenium.Firefox;

    public static class FirefoxInitialise

    {

         public static IWebDriver Driver {get; set;}

         FirefoxDriverServices service = FirefoxDriverService.CreateDefaultService();

         service.FirefoxBinaryPath = @"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe";

         FirefoxOptions options = new FirefoxOptions();

         TimeSpan time = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);

         Driver = new FirefoxDriver(service, options, time);

    }

Any help or insight as to why the code still won't detect this driver would be greatly appreciated it.

Try to put the geckodriver.exe in your path: C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\seleniump\seleniump\bin\Debug

you can find geckodriver.exe at this link:

https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases
