    Maybe but you gave us very little information to go on.


    What's your TestComplete version?

    What kind of app are you testing?

    Is this a new problem?  Has the recording function ever worked for you?

    Is there a line in your test that has the keystrokes and they aren't playing back? We need a screenshot please.

    If you create a simple test on your own without the record, do the keystrokes work?

      Version 10.10.1042.7, Desktop delphi app, error is new I was able to reproduce the recording I created a recording of the windows calculator but without success.



      in the recording I clicked on the first field I pressed ENTER key typed "RTERTET" ENTER key and typed "YTERTYRTYT" but just recorded the click



      function Test1()
      Sys.Process("sysmovs").VCLObject("FrmSps").Window("MDIClient").VCLObject("FrmEst109").VCLObject("PnlArea").VCLObject("EdtCodigo").Click(22, 15);

        Okay, now can you create a keyword test manually that performs the same task and see if that one works?
