Windows 8 Metro app via Ranorex C#

Post by sincoew » Mon Dec 10, 2012 3:14 am

I use Ranorex studio control metro app test case, it's can work.
But when I build the .exe file to run metro test case, it's will timeout.
what's difference both I use Ranorex studio and .exe file to run test case?

On windows 8 metro also can use .exe file to run test case?

Best Regards,
Robert Chen.

Hi,

Yes, this is possible but you have to bear the points mentioned on the following site in mind: Windows Apps (aka Windows 8 UI Apps).
Ranorex Studio has the sufficient security rights in order to run your test cases, and in order to run the generated executable I would use the Ranorex UiaLauncher.

Regards,
Markus
