Symptom

You may get the this error message:

Application ‘…’ couldn’t be started. Starting application timed out after 20s. Could not hook into the AUT. You may have to exit the AUT manually.

Possible Causes

Binary incompatibility between the application and Squish

Please check the Requirements of Squish for Qt.

Configuring Qt libraries in a different path

Please see “Warning Trying to load a different Qt GUI library”.

Incorrect working directory

The working directory in the test suite settings is not configured, or set to a path that is not expected by the application.

Try to set the working directory in the test suite settings to a path that the application expects, or choose “Path of Application Binary”.
