frontend.dll is missing

Go to solution

Teststand could not login anymore due to missing frontend dll. It pops a file explorer to find the file but it is not present in the directory. Complete deletion of TS 2016 SP1 folder and reinstallation of 64 bit does not fix the problem and I am not running any custom frontend sequence

I had the same behaviour on a PC. The reason was that the user added some extra directories at the top of the list of the search directories


Make sure that you add directories at the bottom of the list of search directories. The top of the search directories list should be in the default state, as in the screen below



Hope it helps

The default state of directories were messed up with new directories on top
