Regression suite automation tool (RSAT) fails generating new test artifact

Posted on by 26
Hello Folks,

While trying to generate test execution files for my test cases, RSAT returns this error message for each of my test cases : 

/test case name/
System.Data.ObjectNotFoundException: The XppCodeGeneratorConsoleApp.exe cannot be found by path .//Microsoft.Dynamics.XppCodeGeneratorConsoleApp.exe
   at Microsoft.Dynamics.RegressionSuite.CodeGeneratorHelper.CreateTestFiles(TestCaseModel testCase, String recordingFile, String outputPath, String companyName, Logger logger, Boolean isCreateDerivedAction)
   at Microsoft.Dynamics.RegressionSuite.CodeGeneratorHelper.ProcessXml(TestCaseModel testCase, String outputPath, String companyName, Boolean generateOnlyTestExecution, Boolean migrateUserParameters, Boolean isCreateDerivedAction)
   at Microsoft.Dynamics.RegressionSuite.WpfApp.Services.AttachmentGenerator.<>c__DisplayClass20_1.<<GenerateParentWithDerivedTests>b__1>d.MoveNext()

I have only partially set up the Finance & Operations environment in the settings but the error does not seem to be coming from that. 
RSAT version : 2.6.16196.59

Question : Has anyone also stumbled on that error ? How can I work around that ? 

Thanks in advance.

    Hi S Gopi Krishna and Kevin Xia, 

    Deleting and reloading the tests seem to have done the job, they are loaded correctly and work as expected. 
    I followed the installation instructions. 

    Thanks to the both of you !

    Manually delete the test artifact files from the RSAT folder of the device and reload the test case to create a new copy. Then, generate the test execution files.
