changes to General Events files

After running tests in Test Execute, it is asking me if I want to save changes to several "General Events" (GeneralEvents0.tcax.tlb) in the test projects I just ran.  Can someone explain to me why changes are being made to these files in Test Execute?

Does your test have event handling?

 

See Event Control Modules section here:

Yes we use event handling

Re: changes to General Events files

1) Do you get the prompt to save the file if you run exactly the same test in TestComplete?

 

2) Are your TestComplete and TestExecute versions exactly the same?

1) No, but I almost always save before closing Test Complete so I wouldn't get the same prompt, but the files do get changed by Test Complete when I run the same tests, and I happen to save those changes when I save my intended changes.

 

2) Yes, the versions are the same.

This is normal behavior. You should use the /Silent mode command line switch to prevent the prompt.
