Selenium Grid Install Issues

Posted on 2011-05-06
Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I'm  trying to install selenium grid and so far I've downloaded and properly installed java and Apache Ant. I just downloaded and unzipped to my desktop the selenium-grid-1.0.8. Selenium says thats all you have to do and to validate install in DOS with the following commands:

cd selenium-grid-1.0
ant sanity-check

cd selenium-grid-1.0 returns the following error:
C:\Users\Administrator>cd selenium-grid-1.0
The system cannot find the path specified.

ant sanity-check returns:
C:\Users\Administrator>ant sanity check
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed

Need help fixing these two issues to move forward.

    where you unzipped to? If you have a folder on desktop selenium-grid-1.0 you must use

    cd C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0 if your user name ist Administrator

    Better way you unpack the zip file to a folder like c:\temp and run from there

    Installing to the desktop was fine I just didn't know that you had to take the following steps to get the confirmation.

    C:\Users\Administrator>cd desktop

    C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>cd selenium-grid-1.0
    The system cannot find the path specified.

    C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>cd selenium-grid-1.0.8

    C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0.8>ant sanity-check
    Buildfile: C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0.8\build.xml
