Problem

I had the same problem running InternetExplorerDriver locally in Windows 7 – (IEDriverServer_Win32_2.42.0.zip)

org.openqa.selenium.remote.UnreachableBrowserException: Error communicating with the remote browser. It may have died.

When I checked the running processes under TaskManager, there were multiple IEDriverServer.exe processes running, that hadn’t been cleaned up properly.

Solution

Running the following command, killed all running IEDriverServer.exe processes, and resolved this issue (for me).

taskkill /F /IM IEDriverServer.exe
