We are have severe problems getting eTester to work VBA scripts. In most cases, the eTester application dies completely, freezes up, and/or corrupts files. These problems have resulted in lost code, corrupted scripts, and lost time. RSW/Empirix support is unable to resolve the issues we have. As VBA is the only effective means to use this tool, we cannot recommend anyone wanting to do serious automation to consider this product.
I used e-Tester for a while. I only use VBA for navigating and verifying the results. Most of the time it works well.But for one part of the web application I am testing. e-Tester have problem with it. I encountered the error message like "Wrong script format" and "VBA is not accessable..." What I do is exporting all the VBA code to somewhere before run them. If e-Tester crashes, just close it and open it again,you will fine, but you should avoid the problem area to manual testers.
I really like e-Tester, it is easy to use,to maintain,and to reuse.
I like the suite myself but have seen too many times the VBA section of the software fail and other people I know who have used it have found bugs in the software, ie.. the e-Load component from 5.0 -> 5.02... However, the VBA, I too have one problematic PC in the office where once installing e-Test and trying to use it, as soon as it starts to open I get an error stating that VBA is unaccessible and the there was an error loading a .DLL... the app then opens but playing back is impossible as I get the 'stopped on exception' error...
Anyone else experienced this?
