I'm wondering if there is possibility to create COM object of the TestComplete. I would like to access all functionality from different language/application and use just some features of the TestComplete.

For example with AutoItX one can do something like this (see the code section).

It would be great to access whole object tree created by TestComplete this way.

Does somebody have any exepriences with this approach?


# Written in powershell

# Create new autoitX COM object

$ai = New-Object -comObject AutoItX3.Control

# Use autoit functions

$title = "Notepad"

if ( $ai.WinExists ( $title ) ) {

  $ai.WinClose( $title )


Open in new window

    Perhaps you should contact Tech Support from the makers of TestComplete, if hopefully, you have a support contract with them. That would make the most sense. And/or check their user documentation or online knowledgebase.

    Accepted Solution

    Thank you, I  wanted to get some sort of advice quickly. I have already the solution (VB):

    Set TestCompleteObject = CreateObject("TestComplete.TestCompleteApplication")

    More is in the online documentation (topic "Working With TestComplete via COM") available as part of the TestComplete (there is 30 days trial available).
