Automating the complete Metro App (launch, access controls, terminate) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I need to automate a metro app right from launching to termination of the app. So i have a metro app and to automate it, im creating a c# console project where i am including a c++ dll file having code to launch my metro app. For this action i referred the link :http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsappdev/archive/2012/09/04/automating-the-testing-of-windows-8-apps.aspx

    However when i add this dll file through the Reference dialog, i get an error saying "System.EntryPointNotFoundException" for the dllfile with name. I googled fir the error, but still have the issues.

    Also i wanted to know if after successful launching  is there a way to access the metro app controls in my desktop c# application so that i can run the automation tests.

    Please ur help is most helpful.
