what can cause COMException Table 'DELTA_xxxx' does not exist?

We are an ISV, building ArcGIS extensions. I recently implemented a lot of automated tests for our solution. All our tests are passing. However, some tests do fail with the following error:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException : Table 'DELTA_xxxx' does not exist

Where xxxx is the name of a table in our geodatabase. Those failing tests do pass if executed one at a time. While we could just do it, we would like to make sure that the issue is just in our test environment (database, setup code, etc.) and not in our runtime code. From recent testing, that error does not seem to pop up in manual testing.

It is impossible to post any code since our solution is quite large (millions of lines of code, VB6, C++ and C#). However, what I am looking for here is a pointer. We have heard that it could be related to an ICursor not COM released properly. Given the fact that those failing tests only fail if executing after another test, this seems plausible.


Have others seen such issues in the past? Any idea what can be causing this?


Our setup:

  • ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.1
  • C# (that's where the error occurs - calling ITable.Search())
  • .NET 3.5
  • Personal GDB (Access)
  • anything else relevant?
