Testcomplete 9 : dotNET is undefined.

Testcomplete 9 : dotNET is undefined.


I get " 'dotNET' is undefined" error.

1. I have installed the related .net on the computer.

2. all plugins are installed.

3. I have tried reinstalling the program.

The computer is running windows xp. it has .net componenets installed (1.1,2,3,3.5,4).

Visual studio 2005 is installed.

I would also like to note that Code Completion does not show assemblies when I try to use it. It used to show available assmblies after I typed 'dotNET["' , but now it doesn't.

I have another computer running windows 7 and testcomplete demo which has the feature working.

Hi Henry,

This issue typically happens if the .NET Framework is installed after TestComplete, or if some .NET Framework updates are installed via Windows Update on a TestComplete computer. In this case, reinstalling TestComplete resolves the problem:

- uninstall TestComplete;

- delete the "C:\Program Files\SmartBear\TestComplete 9" folder if it was left on the disk (correct the path appropriately);

- restart the computer;

- install TestComplete anew.

Also, if you're using a 32-bit Windows version, make sure that Preferred architecture of the assembly hosting process is set to 32-bit or The same as the operating system (not 64-bit).

Please let me know whether this helps.

Hi Helen,

Your guidance helped, and now I am able to load the DLL using the dotNET object.
