Missing the library.

Hello, I am currently running the Trial version of TestComplete 9 and I want to communicate over the serial port.

I followed the help files that instructed me to browse the GAC and enable the System.IO.Ports, but it's not listed.

I'm running Win7 64bit

I have .NET 4.5 installed, and used the System.IO.Ports library in a C# project, so I know it's installed and work.

Does anyone know why I can't see System.IO.Ports under [GAC] ?

Any comments / thoughts are appreciated.



  • Hi Rene,

    The System.IO.Ports namespace is located in the System assembly (in System.dll), so you need to add the System assembly from the GAC to access the namespace.
