Python not activating Selenium

I have a Selenium issue working on Python, I have a python application that will not open my chromedriver, that functions perfectly okay when I open it in a Java application, so it is not ChromeDriver itself , but the configuration of Python. Can anyone out there help? Thanks,

Cool

When trying to replicate in python a selenium program that was written in Java, and running it with Python the program the Chrome Driver opens a window an immediately crashes popping up a error window stating "chromedriver.exe has stopped working", but it does not happen when run in Java. Program executes and terminates normally. 

Here are few ideas to solve the issue:

  1. Verify the following configurations:
    1. driver=webdriver.Chrome()
    2. driver.maximize_window()
    3. driver.implicitly_wait(30)
    4. driver.set_page_load_timeout(120)
    5. driver.set_script_timeout(30)
    6. have ChromeDriver binary present in your PATH variable
  2. verify browser - driver version for incompatibility (use the latest versions of both),
  3. URL issues (that might be mitigated using raw strings),
  4. OS related issues (chromedriver has a history of crashing on Windows when running large test suites but that does not seem to relate to your problem),
  5. Resource issues (like missing files), Python-version driver issues with PATH (even if correctly set)
  6. If you are using Webdriver 3.x version, problems might be more frequent just because it's so new and Python bindings for Webdriver may have poorer support than, say, Java or Ruby bindings. When your Webdriver script in Python crashes, the traceback may provide useful insights into what might have gone wrong,
  7. Check the logfile.
  8. Running command line python in a Windows 64bit environment, might use python IDE
  9. Make sure python version and selenium-webdriver python package compatibility
  10. Verify you have the correct chrome driver for your OS.
  11. Verify that you have added the chrome driver on your PATH. 
  12. Add chromedriver.exe file in your windows folder :"C:\Windows\System32"
