The dialog will appear and close it , testcomplete will close. we use float license for testcomplete14. --------------------------- TestComplete --------------------------- Failed to start the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\TestComplete 14\Bin\TCHookX86.exe' process: The system cannot find the file specified. TestComplete will be closed. --------------------------- OK ---------------------------

    Try a repair install of TC 14 on the machine in question.  It sounds like something got messed up in the registry or in the file installations.

      Also, it makes sense to try starting TestComplete as an Administrator.

      Thank you a lot. But reinstall can't solve this problem. I will try other ways.
