Re: Error : Unable to start activity ComponentInfo com.visaMcomActivity

We have been working on the error that you have highlighted . To take this further , need a few more details

  • What version of Visa Checkout SDK are you using?
  • What is the version of the device OS?
  • Is the device a rooted phone?
  • Snippet of vInit configuration? (Hint: probably didn’t add the merchant api key)
  • app Activity or Fragment code snippet where you are trying to initialize the SDK?

Re: Error : Unable to start activity ComponentInfo com.visaMcomActivity

Hi,

 

1. Visa 3.5

2. Device OS is vary from jellybean to marshamallow

3. Also vary, have rooted and non-rooted too. Tested on both.

4.

I still use code from sample : 

I copy the whole sample into my app, and the sample code can run. 

 

But when integrating into my activity, got that error. 

Below is the code :

Re: Error : Unable to start activity ComponentInfo com.visaMcomActivity

After going through the details and comparing the scenario across different use cases, the potential reasons for the behavior could be that the values that are mandatory for SDK initialisation not present (need to pass all mandatory files in VisaPayment and MerchantInfo Object)

 

We would recommend the following and revert

  • Check if sample app works with all the configuration ( API key, supported cards, billing address and shipping address configuration etc., )
  • Compare the Developer app with sample app to make sure SDK in initialized correctly
