Hi Saul

Please to close Katalon and Open again
If not good, please to delete all Folder of Katalon

Extract file Katalon.Zip Again
Bug is Over

P/s : I often to see it Everyday ( Meet this Bug 50 times )

Appears to be a common issue with eclipse, From reading a few forums, deleting the metadata folder seems to fix it. So yes, deleting katalon and re installing will work fine.

@nam and @hpulsford Thanks for your prompt response, I tried the second option Nam proposed and the bug is over, thank you so much for your advices.

Hi @nihanvi1,

Just delete this file: E:\Katalon\Katalon_Studio_Windows_64-7.6.6\config.metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\0.snap then run Katalon Studio again.

Hi @nihanvi1,

Please share the full stack-trace but I think you should download Katalon Runtime Engine instead of KS to run your test via command-line.

log.txt (42.4 KB)

Through KS it’s executing but through CMD am facing these issues pls verify and correct me.

Hi @nihanvi1,

To run Katalon test via CMD, please download Katalon Runtime Engine on our website or via this link: https://github.com/katalon-studio/katalon-studio/releases/tag/v7.6.6.

You should also learn our command syntax through our document https://docs.katalon.com/katalon-studio/docs/console-mode-execution.html

Yes @duyluong I have done all these I use to work on these but this time am facing this issue.

Hi @duyluong And am also getting like the below attachment, Could you please help me.

Hi @nihanvi1,

Please delete ‘E:\Katalon\Katalon_Studio_Windows_64-7.6.6\config.metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources’ then reopen Katalon again.

Hi @duyluong tried but no luck.
