Can COM interfere with TC execution ?

We are using a C++ COM which is accessed by TC 10.30 using:

Set oExe = Sys.OleObject(<COM_Object.exe>,"")

Now does it have any issue effect on TC ?, because we are seeing a typing issue (moderate speed) when COM_Object.exe is running in the background. If we terminate the COM_Object.exe while typing, then we don't see any issues at all (high speed).

 

Is there anything that needs to be taken care for this situation ?

Re: Can COM interfere with TC execution ?

Hi,

 

Does the same problem (slow typing) exists if the same COM_object is running with TestComplete closed?

(You can start this COM executable via some .vbs file using the WScript.CreateObject (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/xzysf6hc(v=vs.84).aspx)).

If the problem exists only for TestComplete/Your_COM_object combination, you may try to contact SmartBear Support via the http://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete form.

Re: Can COM interfere with TC execution ?

Thanks for the reply Alex. Appreciate your suggestion.

However, the simulation is being performed by TestComplete and hence TC cannot be closed. I think i will contact SmartBear Support because the issue seems to exist for TestComplete & COM object combination.
