    Can I somehow get the TestRunner edition installed as user X, and have the fullblown Dev edition installed on my user Y account?

    Will that cause issues?

    (2k8 r2 server with remote desktop)

    Hi Steve,

    By "TestRunner edition" do you mean our Run-Time Edition? Currently non of the WebUI editions can be installed on a per user basis. They are all installed for the entire machine. Also Dev Edition (and QA Edition) already includes everything that Run-Time Edition includes. The Run-Time Edition is simply Dev Edition with all the GUI components removed.

    May I ask what is it you're attempting to accomplish? Maybe there's another way to do that.

    Sorry, yeah...run time edition :)

    The server that's running the continuous tests (every 30 mins) is also the machine I RDC into...and since WebUI is a PerMachine license when I go home I have to deactivate it, and transfer the license to my home laptop to keep working.

    So I want the runtime edition to plug away as user X and I can go to town writing new tests....

    Or with this new Test Execution tool that's included will that solve my issues (or will it not work with an inactive license)

    Hi Steve,

    I am pretty certain (though I haven't actually tried it myself) that you should still be able to execute tests from command line (build server) even if your Dev edition is deactivated. The license check is hooked into the UI, not the command line tools. The Run-Time Edition does not require activation or any other sort of licensing check. We trust our customers to purchase the correct number of licenses to stay legal.

    Give that a shot and let me know your results... i.e. go ahead and deactivate Dev edition then try executing the build on the same machine.

    I don't thing the new scheduling server feature will solve the problem you're trying to achieve. It is intended to kick off running tests on a testing agent computer, i.e. one with at least Run-Time already installed and the tests loaded onto it. It can be used to replace a build server/continuous integration server.

    Sincerely yours,
