Troubleshooting

Below are common problems you may encounter using eggPlant Performance along with suggestions for troubleshooting.

Common Problems

  1. When I build my project the builder reports a "LINK: fatal error LNK1181: : cannot open input file <file_name>".
  2. When I build my project or workspace, eggPlant Performance reports that "Build failed: No compiler found for <builder_name>".

Explanations of each follow.

When I build my project the builder reports a "LINK: fatal error LNK1181: : cannot open input file <file_name>.

If you see an error similar to the following:

It indicates that you did not built your workspace prior to building your project. Whenever you make code changes in your workspace, such as creating a new custom virtual user (VU) or editing the source code of a custom VU, you must build the workspace. To build the workspace select the Workspace view and click the Build button. After you build the workspace, you can return to the project view and build your project. It should now link successfully with the newly built workspace.

When I build my project or workspace, eggPlant Performance reports "Build failed: No compiler found for <builder_name>".

eggPlant Performance attempts to recognize the builders installed on the Controller and configures itself accordingly. Occasionally it can fail to locate the appropriate builder. There are two possible solutions to this problem.

  1. Close eggPlant Performance Studio and manually start the IDE of the installed builder, for example, Microsoft Visual C++ 2008. Close the builder and restart eggPlant Performance Studio. Attempt to build your workspace or project again. If the build still fails try option 2.
  2. From the main menu in eggPlant Performance Studio select Build > Edit builders. In the dialog Select Builders ensure the builder required is checked. Right-click the builder, select Edit, and use the  browse buttons to locate the IDE and compiler for the builder. Click OK to exit the dialogs and then attempt to build your project or workspace again.
