Standalone build system using MSBuild

Post by larch2012 » Thu Nov 29, 2012 7:15 pm

Have a VM.

The VM has .net 4.x installed.
Integration with Subversion and code is checked out to build directory.

When the build is executed, using MSBuild, the Ranorex components are missing, of course. No...tests are being executed on this VM, only the build and then the output copied out to the test VMs.

How do we install/provide the .NET Ranorex components for the build VM???

My theory is: install a trial version of runtime Ranorex, which should provide the Ranorex .NET components for the build environment to leverage. As a result, i do not know...what license, if any, is needed since we are JUST building...NOT executing.

Thoughts?

Hi,

If you want to build your Ranorex projects with MSBuild you do not need a license on the machine where you build it.
The best way to get all necessary components of Ranorex to build your tests on the machine is to install Ranorex as you said.

Markus
