Tupelo, Just see the below points and let me know your responses
- You need to have admin rights on the machine
- When you run the configuration tool, if UAC is enabled then it should ask for admin rights
- When you check the checkbox of PowerDebug framework, you should see multiple command windows showing up. This generates a PowerDebug.tlb in the installation folder. If this doesn't get generated then PowerDebug will not work. Make sure the time stamp of the file is same as when you checked the checkbox
If it still doesn't work then send me a PM with your email address
I installed PowerDebug and see QTPPowerDebug.tlb file and I also see PowerDebug being launched when I launch QTP but I don't see any menu options to invoke power debug. the only debugger option i see is default on from QTP. How can I actually use this tool from within QTP?
