    Thanks,

    I was just asking cause my boss, will just not accept the whole running ccnet from the command window and locking the machine and I have pointed out that any UI testing software would have the same issue and they all need to launch a browser to do there tests.

    just one last question have you every tried to run the tests under Jenkins we are going to be moving to this CI software in the near future, I bet most of the settings will be the same as CCnet but I was just wondering if you have any info on it

    Again thanks for all you help

    Hello Andrew,

    You are 100% about any form of UI tests running into this problem. Many of the managers express the same security concern. Our best recommendation is to use some sort of a VNC product and simply disconnect the VNC connection. This leaves the Windows session open and unlocked but you have to log back into the VNC connection before you can get back on the machine.

    I believe I already answered your question about Jenkins in your other support ticket. I did forget to mention i can award you quite a few Telerik Points if you will write up a white paper similar to ours showing how to do it.

    I very much agree with this. This seems like a case of bait-and-switch. Now I'm going to have to go back to the CTO and tell him that we need to lay out more money to run it on CI.

    Hi Darren,

    I am sorry but I don't see how this is anything like "bait-and-switch". We have never stated we can run on a locked machine. In fact the post you are responding to is 3 years old and has been publicly visible that whole time. We've also had this online KB article for years that discusses the problem and possible work arounds.

    For myself, I handle this situation by using Microsoft Hype-V (which requires authentication to access) and it's Manager console. I can connect and disconnect to any VM I need at will and my tests will still run while disconnected. It's a feature of the Hyper-V product. I suspect that VMWare has something similar. I just don't have it to use and test and confirm.

    Regards,
