If you are using the Edge WebDriver with the Selenium Java API, you need to match the Microsoft Edge Driver version with Microsoft Edge browser version.

1. Run Microsoft Edge and click "Settings".

2. Scroll down. You see the EdgeHTML version #, like "EdgeHTML 17.17134". Do not look at the Edge version #, like "Edge 42.17134.1.0"

3. Go to Microsoft Edge Driver Website.

4. Click on "Release 17134" to start the download.

5. Save the download file to C:\fyicenter\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe

6. Copy the download file to C:\fyicenter\selenium\edgedriver folder.

7. Run the EdgeTest.java again with the matching Edge Driver:

C:\fyicenter> java -classpath \
   .;\fyicenter\selenium\java\client-combined-3.141.59.jar;\
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\guava-25.0-jre.jar;\
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\okhttp-3.11.0.jar;\
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\okio-1.14.0.jar;\
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\commons-exec-1.3.jar \
   -Dwebdriver.edge.driver=\fyicenter\selenium\edgedriver\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe \
   EdgeTest

[13:14:36.580] - Listening on http://localhost:8746/
1:14:39 PM org.openqa.selenium.remote.ProtocolHandshake createSession
INFO: Detected dialect: OSS
[13:14:41.865] - Stopping server.

You see that the Edge browser is started and stopped correctly with no errors.
