Foundation Training - Session 6 - Failed to launch application - Could not open target process

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Foundation Training - Session 6 - Failed to launch application - Could not open target process

    Posted 06-24-2020 04:50
    I am currently working on the Foundation Training and have followed along succesfully without a hitch until the end of Session 6.
    ( Session 6 video )
    At 4 minutes into the video it states to reset and Attach. However even with the application open, it fails to attach the process.


    And I made sure that the process is running under the same name in the task manager as well.

    Any suggestions on how to solve this ?

    Thank you :)

    HI Linda
    Trust you are well and safe.
    The error looks due to the missing path to the .exe file for the application you want to run,
    It will only attach if you pass on the location of the (.exe) of App.
    Find attached the  illustration.
    Regards

    Hi Guarav,

    All is well here, thank you,
    I don't think I explained myself properly in my last post so I will try to clarify.

    In the Application Manager it states that; I should only enter a location if I want to launch the program if it can not be found. (see attached image).

    application modeller- highlighted


    In this instance however, the application is already running, and the attach function is meant to hitch the program to the business object.
    So entering the location for the program to start, would be counter-productive with what I am trying to achieve.

    However, I should note that my application manager looks different than yours, as during setup for this application model, I chose that the application is already running, as per instruction in the tutorial video.

    indicate what type of app-running
    In the other instances of the section 6 training, it uses the 'launch from executable file' option, resulting in the application modeller like you have shared.

    If you (or anyone else :) ) has any other suggestiosn on how to fix this? Please let me know.

    Thank you
    Linda
