Run Ranorex Test without User-Interface Windows Context

Post by bbv_philippdolder » Thu Nov 26, 2009 4:15 pm

Hello

I'm currently evaluationg Ranorex extensively.

In our environment we have one Continuous Integration Server and one testing environment where our software is tested automatically (using Ranorex in the future). This machine is running on a virtualised VMWare ESX Server and therefore there are no screens available. The user will be logged into the local system.

Some testing frameworks had difficulties in performing UI Automation in that scenario.

Are there any limitations with Ranorex in this scenario? Can the automatic tests go on when the user session is locked?

Thanks for your reply
Philipp Dolder
