How do I install only the Ranorex runtime and nothing else?

Post by JohnWashburn » Tue Nov 05, 2013 5:34 pm

I have a C# program that drives the automation of our software tests by using the object identification technology of Ranrorex and the Adapter classes. I would like to install just the Ranrorex runtime on the virtual machines. No spy, no recorder, no test runner.

The best installation command line I have found is:

Code: Select all

Ranorex-4.1.0.exe ADDLOCAL="MainFeature"  /quiet
This is from the documentation found at:
http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... html#c3642

If I use the above, installation of Ranorex, the automation works fine.

If Ranorex is not installed and I instead use the gacutil add to the GAC all the DLL's in

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 4.1\bin
C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 4.1\x64
The automation does not work because the winform widgets of the AUT cannot be found by calls to Host.Local.Find() and FindSingle().

Installed by the Ranorex installer and the objects can be found by Host Local jsut fine.

Is there a better command line argument(s) I should use that will install the Ranorex Core and not the tools?

Hi,

Currently it is not possible to install the main components without Spy, Recorder, and..

Maybe as workaround you can take a look to following post, there is no need to install Ranorex
