Appium Desktop - Getting "An unknown server-side error occurred"

Hi Team ,

I am using Appium Server(Appium-windows-1.15.0) for inspecting the elements. After selecting the capabilities and select “Start Session” , it is trying to connect to the devices (because it is showing some activity on the Device , like launching the browser ) and after some time getting following error.

An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: Failed to start Chromedriver session: A new session could not be created. Details: session not created: This version of ChromeDriver only supports Chrome version 75 (Driver info: chromedriver=75.0.3770.90 (a6dcaf7e3ec6f70a194cc25e8149475c6590e025-refs/branch-heads/[email protected]{#1003}),platform=Windows NT 10.0.17134 x86_64)

My Capabilities on Appium Server

{
“deviceName”: “My Nokia”,
“udid”: “xxxxxxx”,
“platformName”: “ANDROID”,
“platformVersion”: “6.0”,
“browserName”: “Chrome”,
“noReset”: true
}

My device is Nokia 8.1 , Android 10 with Chrome version 78.0.3904.62.
I have 78.0.3904.70 chromedriver in C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\node_modules\appium-chromedriver\chromedriver\win

Do I need to downgrade the Chrome on Device or upgrade the ChromeDriver ,


Please suggest how to rectify this issue?

Hi @RaviK

you need to downgrade the chromedriver as driver which was there in Appium is not supporting.

Try to downgrade and check

Thanks Rajesh for the reply. Now its working.

Its started working after upgrading the chromedriver in
C:\Users\xxxxxxxxxxx\AppData\Local\Programs\Appium\resources\app\node_modules\appium\node_modules\appium-chromedriver\chromedriver\win

Downloaded driver from : https://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/index.html

Followed the steps mentioned in : https://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/LATEST_RELEASE_72.0.3626
