No executable files are created from test suite

Post by BlindJones » Wed May 13, 2020 6:25 am

Good morning,

I have a very large solution with different smart folders and test cases in it.
Now I want to be able run just parts of that solution by executing ".exe"-files from the bin-folder.

I created another test suite "TestSuiteB" (under the main project in Ranorex Studio), copied a part of the main test suite "TestSuiteA" into it and compiled the whole solution.
Now I can see the "TestSuiteB.rxtst" file in the solution folder, but sadly no executable file is created, I still just can see "TestSuiteA.exe".

Am I doing something wrong? Has Ranorex to be configured to create *.exe files of every test suite? Maybe what I am trying is not the best solution for this task?

My thoughts on possible solutions were
1) To copy the whole solution and make every part I want to run seperately an own solution
2) To create different projects within this solution
But all that would take a lot of time due to the solution size...

Thank you for your feedback!

Best regards

The .EXE is named by the project settings, not by the test suite. Run the solution project .EXE with a command-line parameter that specifies which test suite you want it to execute. Use /ts:"<full path to your test suite.rxtst>" for example. Also look into run configurations if you want to just run parts of a test suite, accessible again via the .EXE command-line e.g. /rc:"your run configuration name".
