Unable to load local DLL assemblies using dotNet

Hello,

 

I am trying to access a local DLL functions following the article 

https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/advanced/using-external-functions/calli...

 

So, I have added to the CLR Bridge the library that I want to access. In addition, following the tip in 

https://smartbear-cc.force.com/portal/KbArticleViewer?name=Why-is-my-NET-assembly-not-getting-loaded...  I have also added its dependencies

 

The final list added to the CLR is

However, when invoking the dotNET object I can not see the library that I want to use Framework_DataAccess

carlesrc_1-1607028719329.png

I can't see either some other libraries (p.e Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.Abstractions )

 

I have checked with the developers, and these are all the references this application uses. so sound improbable that I am missing some other reference. 

 

Which step I am missing? Any help will be appreciated

 

Note: The library is built on .NET Core 3.1. and I am using TestComplete Version: 14.71.275.7

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Considering that support for .Net Core is at experimental stage in TestComplete I would create a Support ticket via the https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete form and ask for their comments.

Re: Unable to load local DLL assemblies using dotNet

I wish the documentation was clear and to the point. If .Net Core support is still in beta, then do not use the expression early preview support' . Simply indicate that is not released and the user should not expect a seamless behaviour. 

 

Thanks,

Hi Carles,

 

Have you created a Support ticket to clarify the situation?

It might be that current .Net Core support in TC has some issue with your assemblies. But it is also possible that your assemblies deviate from some requirements and this should be corrected.

SmartBear's Support is professional and responsive and your assemblies may be a good source to improve .Net Core support.

Re: Unable to load local DLL assemblies using dotNet

Support ticket created 🙂

 

I have no problems accepting that TC does not currently offer support for a specific library. But considering that .NET Core 3.1 is not a fringe library only used by very few, I think that either TC should support it or state clearly or that is not supported (my original ticket was about interpreting what 'early preview support'  means). 

 

If only partial support is offered, then state clearly the context in which it will work. Otherwise, it is a waste of time on our side (the customer) and on SmartBear side (answering all these  emalls).

 

Hopefully I am not unreasonable!
