Error in REF / GeneralTestCase.xaml

I create a REF - Project, but i got some errors in “GeneralTestCase.xaml”

First, the file didn’t exist after creating a new project with REF?!
I don’t know why - i copied this file from another project where this file is included into my testing-folder.

When i try to run this GeneralTestCase.xaml with data-variants i got the error “Expressions are currently not supportes” ???

I’m using Studio V2022.4.4. What i am doing wrong?

Hi @michael.nes

  1. If you speak of RE Framwork, GeneralTestCase.xaml was never part of it as far as I remember. Don’t remember ever seeing this file when creating new project with RE Framework.

It’s most likely the in the project you refer to - with the file - someone has created it as a test file for a general case?

  1. Could you show the error please? It’s most likely that you are using new version of library where it does not exists or created a project in Windows compatibility and the old file was in Windows-Legacy compatibility


Basically this is not a secuence that we should execute, as the name says it will generate a test case for any thing that we need to test, for that we need the UiPath.Testing.Activities library installed.

Also this folder is only for new projects created, old versions didnt have that kind of folder or testing secuences


Thnx for your answer, but - the UiPath Academy says otherwise…

The course “Build a REFramework Procect with Orchestrator Queues” at “Testing a REFramework Project With Queues Using UiPath Test Suite” ( UiPath Academy ) shows how to run GeneralTestCase.xaml.


Those secuences will only be useful for testing and debug, this wont work at the production environment

It must be a Windows compatibility problem, the error does not occur with Windows Legacy.

I have now created two REFramework projects, one with Windows Compatibility and one with Windows Legacy Compatibility. With compatibility Windows Legacy everything works correctly, GeneralTestCase.xaml is created and runs correctly, e.g.:

That’s OK

However, there are errors with Windows compatibility.

  • Although the GeneralTestCase.xaml file should exist according to Studio, it doesn’t exist on disk.

And when I try to take over this file from the legacy project, I get the following error when compiling:

Any hints why it doesn’t work with compatibility windows?

Hello Michael. Have you heard anything new about this?
