In Protractor, I need to run one line of code from the test suite called mytest:

console.log('my first Protractor test');

I am not loading any webpages. I am only printing to the console.

I have the following latest stable versions:

  • node -v => v8.11.2
  • npm -v => 6.0.1
  • protractor --version => 5.3.2

C:\test\> protractor conf.js --suite=mytest

I am getting the following error:

[15:59:08] E/configParser - Error code: 105
[15:59:08] E/configParser - Error message: failed loading configuration file conf.js
[15:59:08] E/configParser - C:\test\conf.js:59

  • Pls share your conf.js file where this error is coming. – Vishal Aggarwal Jul 12 '18 at 11:38

It seems to be syntax issue before the highlighted error line(getPageTimeout) in the conf file.

In general ,Run suite as below(without '='):

protractor conf.js --suite mytest
