VuGen 12.55: An error when clicking on "Compare" button

Jump to solution

When I click on "Compare" button in VuGen to compare Recording and Replay I am getting the following error:
-------------------
Error comparing [C:\TEMP\first_Step13_Record_1561_WebView_temp.txt] with [C:\TEMP\second_Step13_Replay 1_96_WebView_temp.txt] - The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail
-------------------
It's Web Protocol script in VuGen 12.55 on Windows 10.

Hi

Do you get this error on all script after record + replay ?

Or only on this script ? 

Regards

Hi

1) Please check that you launch VuGen as admin .

2) please check that you can launch the comapre manually from : 

C:\Program Files (x86)\HPE\LoadRunner\bin\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe

and then file -> open -> you add the left & right .txt file .

I hope that VuGen succeeded to create these file : 

C:\TEMP\first_Step13_Record_1561_WebView_temp.txt

C:\TEMP\second_Step13_Replay 1_96_WebView_temp.txt

I checked required dlls on http://manual.winmerge.org/Install.html and realised that MFC90U.dll was missing on my laptop.
I reinstalled WinMerge 2.14.0 into the same folder.

"Compare" button started working in VuGen, however it doesn't highlight some of the inline differences.
Is this a known issue in WinMerge?

Thank you Oren,

I have "View -> View Line Differences" enabled.

Some differences are highlighted (e.g. Date/Time in the second from the bottom line in the first screenshot).

At thes ame time some differences (e.g. ReferenceNo on the 3rd from the bottom line on a 2nd screenshot) are not highlighted.
