I like to know the best practice to automate the process of Installing our desktop applications on virtual machines run the test and set-up clear down process.
Basically an the entire end to end process of automation but in a high level.
I really appreciate if you could share as much knowledge as possible in this area.

Hi,

What you are looking for is some kind of continuous integration process. Basically, you need to setup a continuous integration infrastructure, which builds AUT and your Ranorex tests, distribute executables to VMs of your choice, run tests and then perform cleanup (ideally restore VM state using VM snapshot).

Unfortunately, there is no end-to-end guide how to setup entire process and all required tools. However, there are some pretty good Ranorex integration tutorials describing how to integrate Ranorex with existing CI infrastructures. I would suggest to start with this blog article...
http://www.ranorex.com/blog/integrate-r ... n-process/
At the end of this article you can find some links to toolset-specific tutorials, describing Ranorex integration with most common CI tools. Hope this helps?

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
