Problem on running the load test tool

Jul 21, 2011 at 9:08 AM

Hi Rob,

     I have generated a trace file from SQL server 2005 running on Windows server 2008 R2.

I have installed SQL server 2005 (with management tools), SQL server 2005 SDK in my client machine. Then I downloaded the SQL load test tool and copied to

one folder in the C:\ drive. Then I installed Visual studio 2005 Team Edition.

     When I am executing the tool with the trace file, I am getting the following error:

C:\SQLLoadTest>DbLoadTestGen.exe testScenario trace1.trc
Cannot read the trace file trace1.trc, please ensure it is a valid SQL Profiler trace file.
Failed to initialize object as reader.
The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

I think this is due to the incompatible trace file.

Please provide some input about this problem.

Thanks and Regards,

It would seem likely that there is still a dependency missing. Can you use the Fusion Log Viewer to find out which assembly it thinks is missing?
