I have already compiled my tests, and all the binaries are in an out_binaries directory, along with the test scripts which were copied to the the output directory during the build.  Is there a way I can run the runner without it also compiling?  I have a program that uses the calling executable to get a path for some directories, but when ArtOfTest.Runner compiles, it creates another bin directory below the directory I am running in, so my pathing fails.

Hi,

I have to admit that the Test Studio test execution is designed to build the project before running the tests. Thus, there is no way to skip the compile action for the CLI runner as well. 

I will appreciate if you take the time to elaborate on the setup you use and how the compilation process bothers you. I guess we will be able to find a proper way of calling the test runs so that you can have the rest of the configuration as needed. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Elena

OK.  I had already built it, using the visual studio application, and then I wanted to try to run it like I would run it from the command line if I were going to deploy the scripts for someone else to run that was not a developer. I am trying to come up with what is required to deploy my scripts to a system that may just have the artoftestrunner executable installed on it.    Our testers are likely going to run the pre-canned scripts that I create, and was wondering if that is the correct tool for them, or if there is something else.

Hello, 

Thanks for sharing these additional details.

The prerequisites for running a Test Studio test or test list on a remote machine are as follows:

  • Install the Test Studio Run-time edition;
  • Deploy the Test Studio project root folder;
  • List a command for the ArtOfTest.Runner.exe to run the desired test or test list - use the full path of the file as part of the deployed project. 

I hope that this information helps you sort out your doubts. Let me know if you have any further questions on the case.

Regards,
Elena
