Where to look when ReadyAPI does not start?

Not sure if this is the right forum here. My ReadyAPI, which was working fine before, now refuses to start. The splash screen shows up, disappears and that's it. I do not see the ReadyAPI process in Windows task manager. I was looking for logs in the ReadyAPI directories, but found nothing. Is there any way to enable error logging?

 

This is ReadyAPI 3.3.2 on Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1909.

Re: Where to look when ReadyAPI does not start?

Thanks for your reply, @HimanshuTayal. No, I did not touch any files of the ReadyAPI installation.

 

I solved this for now by reinstalling ReadyAPI. While this was the quickest solution, it is also the least satisfying solution, of course. I would have preferred to find the root cause. Let's hope it will not happen again.

 

Just one more thing. After reinstalling ReadyAPI, I could no longer compile my Java project with Maven in Visual Studio Code. I fixed this by explicitly setting JAVA_HOME for the Maven terminal (a VS Code setting). It looks like an issue with executable search path definition. Unfortunately I do not have time to investigate this further.

Found some logs in %HOMEPATH%\.readyapi\logs but they do not contain any error message for today. Deleted all logs. Restartet ReadyAPI. No new logs are written.

Looks like my installation is broken. Testrunner fails as well.

 

PS C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-3.3.2\bin> .\testrunner.bat
Error: Unable to initialize main class com.smartbear.ready.cmd.runner.pro.SoapUIProTestCaseRunner
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/eviware/soapui/reporting/ModelItemReport
PS C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-3.3.2\bin>

@mneiferbag : Did you change any of the jar in C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-3.3.2\lib or C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-3.3.2\bin\ext folder?
