The process TestExecute started, but the REST server did not start.

Hi all,

I'm working on Azure DevOps Server trying to run a TestLeft project using TestExecute and Visual Studio Test Platform.

I have the following error:

 

 

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for '...' threw an exception. ---> SmartBear.TestLeft.TestAgentRunException: The process TestExecute started, but the REST server did not start. ---> SmartBear.TestLeft.WebApiWrapper.TestAgentRunError: The process TestExecute started, but the REST server did not start..

 

 

The test agent is Windows 10 Enterprise.

 

I appreciate your help.

Hi,

 

Yes, your guess seems to be correct - TestLeft uses TestExecute as a run-time agent, but it also provides several own components. So TestLeft must be installed on every machine where tests are supposed to be executed.

It seems that the error is because TestLeft must also be installed in the agent test, not TestExecute only..
