How to do remote execution from Ranorex?

Post by annau » Wed Aug 26, 2009 8:18 am

Hello,

We are trying to execute a script remotely [running on another computer] using Ranorex, what is the recommended way of doing this?

Also is it possible to incorporate both local and remote execution from the same script?

Thank you.

Hello annau!
Ranorex doesn`t provide you with integrated functionality to do this, but:
First of all, you need a Ranorex Runtime or Ranorex Developer licence installed on the remote pc.

A compiled Ranorex automation script is a common '.exe' application, so you only need to execute your 'test.exe' remotely. For this purpose there are several tools out like psTools (http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/sysi ... 97553.aspx). If you want to execute your tests automated it`s adviseable to use a continuous build process tool or something similar e. g. Cruise Control (http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net/) maybe in combination with a version control system e.g. SVN (http://subversion.tigris.org/) which assures that you use the same version on local and remote pc.
