Standalone Report Viewer?

Post by Ciege » Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:26 am

Using VS2008 C# with Ranorex.

I want to be able to send my report (rxlog) files to other people in the company review (my boss, other QA members, development, etc...). How do I do this without requiring each person to obtain a license and install Ranorex?

Thanks...

You can open the report (rxlog) file with an internet browser.
be sure, you have the *.rxlog and the Stylesheet file (RanorexReport.xsl) in the same folder.

Edit:
If it doesnt work rename the rxlog file to rxlog.xml.
You can also use the Ranorex.ReportViewer.exe (without installing Ranorex)

When I try to run Ranorex.ReportViewer.exe on a machine that does not have Ranorex installed (i.e. I just copy the exe to that machine) I always get an error that says "Ranorex Report Viewer has encountered a problem and needs to close."

It does appear however if I rename the rxlog file to .xml I am able to open the report in a browser on a separate machine.

Thanks!

I forgot: in addition to the ReportViewer.exe you also need to copy Ranorex.Controls.dll

I found that it was also necessary to have the Ranorex.Core.dll in the same directory as the Ranorex.ReportViewer.exe and the Ranorex.Controls.dll, at least with the latest version of Ranorex.
