Rational Functional Tester integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 does not work as expected

Technote (troubleshooting)


After installing IBM Rational Functional Tester 8.2.2 (RFT) .NET 2010 Scripting, the integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 does not work. The option to create a new functional test project is not available in the menu or in the New Project wizard.


The Regsrv32 file does not register the Rftvs10.dll file.

This occurs because the dependencies msvcp80.dll and msvcr80.dll, which are required for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 integration to work, may be missing in the system or the paths to these may not be set.

Resolving the problem

Download and install the vcredist_x86.exe file from the location Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update.

Complete the installation instructions mentioned in the page.

Note: You may be prompted to restart your computer.

If you have installed RFT 8.2.2 .NET 2010 Scripting before you installed the vcredist_x86.exe file package, then complete these steps:

  1. Open the command prompt As Administrator and navigate to
    C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\FunctionalTester\vsnet\bin (on 64-bit computers), C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\SDP\FunctionalTester\vsnet\bin)

  2. Run the following command:
    regsvr32 RftVs10.dll

A dialog box is displayed, with a message indicating that the Rftvs10.dll file was successfully installed: DllRegisterServer in RftVs10.dll succeeded.
