The operation cannot be performed, because the desktop is invisible.

Hi,

 

In the past, my tests were running fine while remote desktop is minimized.

 

After getting a new computer (this is the one that connects to a remote desktop system), I added a DWORD value named RemoteDesktop_SuppressWhenMinimized and set it to 2 (hexadecimal or decimal) to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client.

 

I also updated TestComplete to version 14.50.976.7 on the remote system.

 

Now, I got the error message saying that :"The operation cannot be performed, because the desktop is invisible." when minimizing the remote desktop.

Does anyone seeing the same issue with the latest TestComplete version? Can anyone shed some light? Thanks.

@Marsha_R, Sean ONeil at SmartBear helped me to solve this issue. There was an extra whitespace at the end in the name of my registry key.
