I am trying to use Selenium to interact with websites. However, whenever I try to run I receive errors, with a different error for each browser. Is there something else I need to download?

My code
Code:
Function AutomationTest()
Dim bot As New WebDriver
bot.Start "firefox", "[URL]http://google.com[/URL]"
End Function
My error messages are:

IE: Page opens briefly and the closes. No error message

Chrome: Page does not open. Receive error
SessionNotCreatedError
session not created exceptopm
from unknown error: Runtime.exceutionContextCreated has invalid 'context':
("auxData":("frameId":2A8788729284AC9BDB8E7D1333A28DA1","isD <message was cutoff>
(Session info: chrome=78.0.3904.70)

Firefox: Blank page opens. Then the error:
Run-time error '21':
TimeoutError
Firefox failed to open the listening port 127.0.0.1:65504 within 15s

Edge: Page does not open. Receive error
Run-time error '21':
TimeoutError
The driver failed to open the listening port 127.0.0.1:49950 within 10s
Environment Windows X, Running VBA in Access 2013, Selenium v2.0.9.0
All the drivers have been updated

Hi. I haven't tried using Selenium, but would there be switch available to dictate how the browser window should behave? For example, when you try to open a DOS window, there's the /c switch. Or, when you try the Shell API, there's the WindowNormal or WindowHidden or WindowMinimize parameters.

I was able to resolve this. The driver needed to be in c:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\SeleniumBasic. There is a clear explanation on udemy.com
