Hi There,

our coop is installing Parasoft SOA Test for the first time in his machine. While installing at the end of the installation he gets a dialog box saying

The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library.

But SOA completes the installation

when he runs the SOA shortcut, it's showing the dialog box as:
The Parasoft SOAtest executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library

    Something is broken or corrupted in your installation. The "unable to locate its companion shared library" message is referring to the jar file that is used to start the Eclipse workbench. In other words, it implies there are files corrupted or missing from the installation folder.

    Try uninstalling and them re-installing the tool. Make sure you run the installer with administrator/elevated privileges. If you still run into issues then I'd recommend contacting Parasoft Support.
