  • System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'Common'

    • Hi,
      The conversion tool worked for my project without any errors but when I am trying to run the converted Coded UITest, i am getting the following error.
      System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'Common' from assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITesting, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.
      Any suggestions please?

      Which version did you use to create the Coded UI Test?

    • Hi,
      The problem was due to the reference of Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Common added under the references section. The solution is working fine after removing the stale reference.
      Thanks alot to all for the support.
