    Hello,

    When I schedule tests on a remote PC the testlist fails and the log says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
    The testlist passes when run locally.

    I have Test Studio installed on my local machine & have installed 'Telerik Test Studio Run-Time' on a build server.
    I have followed everything in the videos here: http://tv.telerik.com/series/qa-edition-scheduling-remote-execution 
    The build server has been configured as a scheduling server and execution server.
    The Test studio I have running on my local PC can connect to the server, and I can schedule tests.

    The full version of test studio doesn't need to be installed on the build server right? Just the run time version? 

    If you could help me out here it would be much appreciated. 

    Cheers,

    -Matt

    Hi Matt,

    That is correct, you only need to have the Run-time version of Test Studio installed on the execution machine, but please ensure that all machines are running the same version. If you haven't done so already, please check this KB article on "Resolve Common Scheduling Issues" and follow the troubleshooting steps described there.

    Also, consider the option to upgrade to our latest internal build (2011.2.1209). It contains changes in the implementation for the Scheduling feature. You can download it from your Telerik account here: Public URL.

    If you continue to have difficulty with this, please export the Scheduling Log contents (to Excel or Text file) and send it to us. It's located here by default:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Test Studio 2011.2\Bin\Telerik.TestStudio.Scheduling.Log.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hi Plamen,

    There was a mismatch between versions of Test Studio and the Scheduling/Execution server.

    Have updated them to the latest internal build and it works fine.

    Thanks for your help!
