Selenium Grid Install Issue

Posted on 2011-05-09

I'm  trying to install selenium grid and so far I've downloaded and properly installed java and Apache Ant. Apache ANT and Java both show as successfully installed. I just downloaded and unzipped to my desktop the selenium-grid-1.0.8. Selenium says that all you have to do is unzip and validate install in DOS using 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.

    It finally worked these are the steps I took in DOS to get a confirmed install:

    C:\Users\Administrator>cd desktop

    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

         [echo] Apache Ant(TM) version 1.8.2 compiled on December 20 2010
         [echo] Java 1.6
         [echo] ********************************************************************

         [echo] Congratulations, your setup looks good. Have fun with Selenium Grid!

         [echo] ********************************************************************
