This topic helps you troubleshoot problems you might experience with C++test.
What Do I Do If C++test Runs Out of Memory?
You can customize the amount of allocated memory with the CPPTEST_ENGINE_EXTRA_ARGS option by specifying the value of the
-Xmx setting. This may be particularly useful for when you perform static analysis or report results to DTP. See Configuring Advanced Options for details.
How do I analyze header files/what files are analyzed?
C++test analyzes C/C++ source files directly and header files indirectly. Based on the current selection, C++test will analyze all C/C++ source files and report violations for all source and header files from the selection (only for header files included by the source files).
- if the project root is selected, then all source files (and header files indirectly) will be analyzed.
- if a single source file is selected, then only that file will be analyzed (no header files will be analyzed).
- if single source file and a single header file is selected, then the source file (and header file if it's included by the source) will be analyzed.
- if only a header file is selected, then C++test will skip the analysis (header files are not analyzed directly).
How can I create a report with a list of active coding standard rules?

|Violations printed out during static analysis and unit testing execution|
How can I import C++test 6.x Test Configurations?
Migrating test assets from C++test 6.x. C++test cannot generate test cases when project caching is enabled in Visual Studio 2017. To ensure that test cases can be generated, disable project caching: To ensure that all Parasoft options are working in the Solution Explorer context menu, the following Visual Studio Workloads must be installed with your Visual Studio 2017:

What if C++test does not launch in the command line mode?
Installing or updating extensions or other Visual Studio components may corrupt Visual Studio's Component Model Cache, which can prevent C++test from launching. To clear the Component Model Cache, try to run
cpptestcli with the
