playerhook64.exe active after playback finishes

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

After the completion of an IBM Rational Functional Tester (RFT) script the process playerhook64.exe stays alive.

Symptom

The test finishes, but a few instances of the process are still active. This happens intermittently. When this happens, you cannot rename or remove project items.


Cause

Playerhook64 is a process that RFT starts when RFT runs on 64 bit processes. After playback the process still runs for unknown reasons.

Resolving the problem

You have two options.

  • Turn off the flag in the ivory.properties in the FunctionalTester\bin folder.

    Change the value of rational.test.ft.player.hook64process.enabled into false.


    BEFORE


    #This flag can be used to turn off hooking of 64 bit processes at playback time
    #Playback should work fine even if the value is false, but there may be some performance degradation specially in
    #playback of inputkeys actions.
    rational.test.ft.player.hook64process.enabled=true



    AFTER


    #This flag can be used to turn off hooking of 64 bit processes at playback time
    #Playback should work fine even if the value is false, but there may be some performance degradation specially in
    #playback of inputkeys actions.
    rational.test.ft.player.hook64process.enabled=false



  • Terminate the process after playback.
