Error loading library; Please check whether PowerBuilder Accessibility library can be located in the path, in Rational Functional Tester

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

This technote addresses how to handle the error message "Error loading library; Please check whether PowerBuilder Accessibility library can be located in the path." when testing against a PowerBuilder application using IBM Rational Functional Tester.

Resolving the problem

Rational Functional Tester requires Powerbuilder accessibility dll (pbaccXXX.dll) in the PB application's installation directory.


You can get this dll from the Powerbuilder's Development setup. Simply check whether this dll is present in the Install folder on the system. If not, just copy it in the install directory of the PowerBuilder application and restart Rational Functional Tester and the application and try to test against the PB app again.

You should no longer see this error message thereafter as a result of registering the necessary dll.
