How to run the Rx .exe minimized?

Post by _KK_ » Fri Dec 07, 2018 8:10 am

Hello Forum!

Have a need to run the Ranorex Projectname.exe minimized.

There is no parameter foreseen in command line as an argument:

Search here in the entire Forum do not have a result.

Who can help?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Hi,

By exe you mean Ranorex studio or your test exe? And if test exe, what do you want to minimize? There is nothing to be minimized during test run, maybe except progress dialog? And this can be completely hidden during run (either via settings or code). So please specify, what exactly do you want to minimize.

Show Progress Dialog is disabled (not to cover important things during the tests)

I mean the binary, which was compiled to run the Tests and can be started with Argument like /rx:fast

see attachment.

So I guess you don't want to see that console window? Then simply compile the test exe as "windows application", instead of default "console application".
