Could not initialize Chrome driver

Hi, I have a problem when running basic examples ’ Visualization of Sales Data’. I could not see any output.

Hi @plains and welcome to the forum.

Can you take a look at the post below? Changing browsers in your KNIME preferences may help - it may also be an antivirus or corporate policy issue.

Hey ScottF, thanks for your reply. I have tried each brower in the preference but they didn’t work.It seems the background app running was enabled. Is there any other methods to visualize the results?

You could also try the older Scatter Plot (JFreeChart) or Scatter Plot (local) nodes as well.
