I'm also working on this, and am able to replicate the same error. Here's what I've tried (using the "getting started" project linked above):
- Running the project from VS2015 on my development PC - success
- Running the executable output built from VS2015 on my development PC - success
- Run on a deployed environment from executable (without VS2015 installed and with no network access, but with Telerik Test Studio installed) - I receive a timeout exception waiting for the browser to connect (event viewer log attached)
- Running an executable which is otherwise the same but using Chrome - success (i.e. Chrome attempts to connect to Google).
This seems to point to the issue occurring due to IE configuration settings, however since I have followed the guide at http://docs.telerik.com/teststudio/getting-started/configure-your-browser/internet-explorer I am not sure what else could be different between the deployed PC and my development machine.
Please advise as to any next steps to find the root cause of this issue
