Hi Rich Winslow,
This error has two causes that we can look at, the first of which is fairly simple:
- Open the Project/Solution
- In the Solution Explorer, locate your test settings file (local.testsettings unless you made a new one)
- Right-Click the item
- Single-Click Open
- Click the Deployment tab
- Check the box for Enable Deployment
- Click Save
After you do the above, re-test your issue. If you are still getting the same error message, we have also found that this error string is generated if the targeted test (the one being targeted for your "Test as Step" step) is no longer present in the targeted file path. I was able to re-create your error message by doing the following:
- Creating a new Project/Solution
- Creating a new test project within the Solution
- Creating a new test within the project
- Created an additional new test, and told it to run the first test first.
- Save and close Studio
- Move the referenced test out of your appropriate folder (within your documents)
By doing the above, I was able to get the exact syntax for your error (less the target directory for the test that was missing, mine points to a file on my computer).
When you select to "Test as a Step", it uses the previously made test.aii file as an individual step, so the file has to be kept in place for the test to still see it. In order to get the project to proceed again, you will need to put the .aii file back in place or re-create the test again.
If the file is still present and you are getting this type of error messages, the original test (that you target for test as step) may be damaged and need to be replaced. In this case, please provide us with a copy of the project in question so that we can review your Project and assist further.
