hello,
it's been one year that I work on your tool of the autommatisation tests (Web UI test Studio), and I see the benefits and inconvĂ©nnients, but it has a major inconvennient of execution on remote server that prevents us from planning the execution of autommatic tests, ie tests that do not run in a way on a remote server when the server session is not open or if it is idle.

in other words, when we plan a job who must crawl one page, and , if we got a Jascaript window.confirm box, Telerik is not able to fired the click on this box if the screensaver is enable or when the remote session is diconnected.


So, I would like to know if you can find me a sollution for this prebleme before renew  of my license ?

best Regards
samir

Hello Nicolas,

This is a known issue and not specific to Test Studio. Any test that requires moving/clicking the mouse or sending key strokes requires an unlocked desktop. Telerik tests are not the only types affected by this Windows limitation. You will find this is a general problem with any tool that performs UI testing. See here for more information. 

To overcome this we came up with a work-around to Keep an Active Session Running on the Execution Server.

Hi Nicolas,

Unfortunately we are not familiar with how Selenium works in this scenario. Our developers, however, are researching alternatives to accomplish this using methods other than the standard Windows API.

Hi,

My team is also facing the same issues, we have been working on this issue for a,long time now, earlier we were using Selenium for testing but switched over to telerik, due lack of support in selenium for chrome. We generally use MSbuild to execute the automated UI tests and generate the report after the build is completed. The code developed using telerik tests seems to fail at manager.launchnewbrowser() comand and throws a Object not found exception. when i run the same tests locally after loggin in as the user it launches the browser and doesnt throw the error, is there any way to run the tests silently without the user logged into the system. please let me know

Hi Yatindra,
 
Unfortunately Test Studio (and most UI automation tools) are unable to run if the machine is not in a fully interactive state. See this article for an explanation and potential workarounds.

Hi Yatindra,

This is a general limitation for any tool that performs UI testing. Unfortunately we haven't heard for any other reliable solutions to this problem, besides the workarounds provided in that article.
