Which file give me this error?

Post by ppatrick » Thu Jun 20, 2013 10:06 pm

Hi,

I received the error below after opening a solution file. First I thought it was the test suite file. However, my test suite file doesn't have line 1880. It only has about 900 lines. Could you please tell me which file has this problem? So I can try to fix it.

System.Xml.XmlException: Name cannot begin with the '<' character, hexadecimal value 0x3C. Line 1880, position 2.
---STACKTRACE---

Hello,

It could be the that the Repository file of your 'Test Suite' contains an illegal character.
Could you please verify if the '<' is used within a name of an item?

Do you have any issues if you try to run other tests?

Regards,
Markus (T)

Hi Patrick,

Do you use SVN? Then check your project source files. I think one of them (I guess rxtst, but maybe also some others) is in conflicted state. I experienced exactly the same problem today and it's definitely caused by conflicted source files ;)
