Protractor screenshot tests error code 105

Protractor tests were running well till I messed around with my

file to include screenshot testing.

Errors from running protractor conf.js

C:\Users\hhhhhh\mmmm\tests\e2e>protractor conf.js
[10:50:13] E/configParser - error code: 105
[10:50:13] E/configParser - description: failed loading configuration file conf.js

throw new exitCodes_1.ConfigError(logger, 'failed loading configuration file ' + filename);`


"name": "e2e",
"version": "1.0.0",
"description": "yup yup yup",
"main": "conf.js",
"dependencies": {
"protractor-jasmine2-screenshot-reporter": "^0.3.1",
"protractor": "3.3.0"
"scripts": {
"test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1"
"author": "",
"license": "ISC"


var ScreenShotReporter = require('protractor-screenshot-reporter');

exports.config = {
seleniumAddress: 'http://localhost:4444/wd/hub',

capabilities: {
'browserName': 'chrome'

directConnect: true,

framework: 'jasmine2',

specs: ['specs/*spec.js'],

onPrepare: function() {
jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(new ScreenShotReporter({
baseDirectory: 'target/screenshots'


Many seem to be having issues with this. Anyone found a sound solution?

Answer Source

It looks from your package.json that you are using protractor-jasmine2-screenshot-reporter but you are using protractor-screenshot-reporter in your conf.js. Both are different modules, please use one of those and try again!
