Thank you for contacting us.
As far as I understand you have encountered a delay in starting the process of the application under test when using the Testing Framework - please let me know if I have misunderstood you.
I have tried to replicate similar misbehavior on my end but to no avail. Therefore, I would like to ask for some further assistance from your end. Can you please elaborate on the topics below to bring further details about the environment in use:
- On the slow Windows 7 machine - when you start the SUT without the Testing framework, do you observe any delay in its start compared to the Windows 10 machine?
- Is the Win 7 machine a virtual or a physical one?
- Is it being used from any other process when you attempt to run the app with the Testing framework test?
Additionally, can you please prepare a sample project with a test which demonstrates the code you have implemented to start the application under test? I ask this, as there could be something in the used approach which causes that delay and it will be helpful to examine this as well.
Since we do not have any similar observations or such misbehavior reported from other customers, as of my perspective the issue seems to be related to the specific Win 7 machine and how it is configured. So if this is a virtual machine, please let me know if there is any chance you can share this with us so that we can examine itself?
I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
