TC11.30 TestedApps do not run when having an UNC path of network path

 

I have installed the latest TestComplete 11.30 yesterday.

Now all my tests fail because the application will nog start anymore.

The error is "The system cannot find the file specified."

 

In the TestedApps we start an application on N:\path\start_data.bat

When I browse in TestedApps the batch file can be found, and it worked on TC 11.20.

When I start WinWord on the C-drive it starts.

 

So it appears to be the network/UNC-patch that makes it inpossible to start.

    Issue is not related to batch files only.

    When changing my testedapp to an executable on the UNC-path it also does not start with the message file not found.

     

    When I chamge the testedapp to a batch file on the local drive it will start from TestComplete.

     

    Fact is, it worked in 11.20 and does not work in 11.30.

    Hi,

    I had this problem with the new version 11.30

    All my .bat files where invisible for TestComplete

    It's not related to UNC locations

    I separated the call to cmd.exe and the command line

     

    For example :

     

    TestTedApps.Clear;

    TestedApps.Add('cmd.exe', '/c \\ (enter your unc here)\batchfile.bat', 1, true, '');
    TestedApps.cmd.Run;

  • I'm also having this problem using:

     

    \\HQLIFSP02\Magic\Magicxpa2.4\MgxpaRuntime.exe

     

    Worked fine before the upgrade.  Saying it can't find the file now.  Should I open an additional ticket?

      Difference seems to be this:

       

      Command Line in 11.20:

       

      "\\hqliapd05\Magicxpa2.5\MgxpaRuntime.exe" /ini=xpaPREPUser.ini /StartApplication=%APPLIC%al.ecf

       

      Command line in 11.30:

       

      UNC\hqliapd05\Magicxpa2.5\MgxpaRuntime.exe" /ini=xpaPREPUser.ini /StartApplication=%APPLIC%al.ecf

      Do you know the patch for UNC was included in version 11.31?
