The error happens when executing coded UI test from a standalone console windows app RRS feed

  • Question

  • The testing is executed successfully in test explorer, but it always pops up the following exception when executing the testing from a console windows app:


    The following is not a valid technology name: UIA.

    To search for a control, you must specify a valid technology name.

    Parameter name: TechnologyName.

    I tried referencing other assemblies which are related to UI testing. but the error stays the same. Maybe there is something that I should add to app.config to be able to run the test?

    BTW, I am testing a UWP application using Coded UI test
