Article Self-referential test step linking in SpiraTest can cause .NET exceptions

by Adam S on Friday, June 14, 2013

If you ever receive the following error message:

Faulting application name: w3wp.exe, version: 7.5.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7afa2
Faulting module name: nlssorting.dll, version: 4.0.30319.1, time stamp: 0x4ba21c2f
Exception code: 0xc00000fd
Fault offset: 0x0000000000001ef9
Faulting process id: 0x1208
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce67177b5b877f
Faulting application path: c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\w3wp.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\nlssorting.dll
Report Id: 5ef990e5-d30e-11e2-863b-005056b1010f

This can often indicate that you have a situation where you have a test case link to a test case that links back to the parent test case (i.e. an infinite loop).

So if you ever receive this message, check for the following situation:

  • Test Case 1
    • TC1 - Links to Test Case 2
      • TC2 - Links to Test Case 3
        • TC3 - Links back to Test Case 1
