How to specify the location of the chromedriver binary


How to specify the location of the chromedriver binary

This might help you Solution 1 - Selenium::WebDriver::Chrome.driver_path=
There is a Selenium::WebDriver::Chrome.driver_path= method that allows specifying of the chromedriver binary:
code :
require 'watir'

# Specify the driver path
chromedriver_path = File.join(File.absolute_path('../..', File.dirname(__FILE__)),"browsers","chromedriver.exe")
Selenium::WebDriver::Chrome.driver_path = chromedriver_path

# Start the browser as normal
b = Watir::Browser.new :chrome
b.goto 'www.google.com'
b.close
# Determine the driver path
chromedriver_path = File.join(File.absolute_path('../..', File.dirname(__FILE__)),"browsers","chromedriver.exe")

# Initialize the browser with the driver path
browser = Watir::Browser.new :chrome, driver_path: chromedriver_path
def find_binary(*binary_names)
  paths = ENV['PATH'].split(File::PATH_SEPARATOR)
  binary_names.map! { |n| "#{n}.exe" } if windows?

  binary_names.each do |binary_name|
    paths.each do |path|
      exe = File.join(path, binary_name)
      return exe if File.executable?(exe)
    end
  end

  nil
end
require 'watir'

# Determine the directory containing chromedriver.exe
chromedriver_directory = File.join(File.absolute_path('../..', File.dirname(__FILE__)),"browsers")

# Add that directory to the path
ENV['PATH'] = "#{ENV['PATH']}#{File::PATH_SEPARATOR}#{chromedriver_directory}"

# Start the browser as normal
b = Watir::Browser.new :chrome
b.goto 'www.google.com'
b.close

like below fixes the issue The error message is actually about browser binary, but not about geckodriver. Try to use following:
code :
from selenium.webdriver.firefox.firefox_binary import FirefoxBinary

binary = FirefoxBinary('path/to/firefox.exe')
driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_binary=binary)
WebDriverException: Message: Expected browser binary location, but unable to find binary in default location

To fix this issue I'm trying to use Selenium in Python 2.7 and I get the following error, , You can avoid this issue in two different ways:
code :
from selenium.webdriver.firefox.firefox_binary import FirefoxBinary
from selenium import webdriver
firefox_binary = FirefoxBinary('/usr/bin/firefox/')
driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_binary=firefox_binary)

Does that help It is telling you that chromedriver.exe doesn't have the executable bit set.
But I don't think that matters since you are trying to run a Windows program (.exe) on an Linux machine which is what Heroku is.

To fix the issue you can do I have a service that is using selenium to start a chrome webdriver using chrome headless mode. The application is launched through tomcat8. I can run the service without issue locally on my mac. , This error message...

I hope this helps . chromedriver is not installed in your System by default. Users individually have to download chromedriver from ChromeDriver - WebDriver for Chrome page and you can place it anywhere within your system.
You must ensure that Chrome is installed at the optimum location as the server expects you to have Chrome installed in the default location for each system as per the snapshot below :
