Can Testcomplete do distributed testing if an application is installed at different locations?
Can Testcomplete do distributed testing if an application is installed at different locations? On one PC the application is installed in Program Files, in the other it is installed in Program Files (x86). When I run the verification on a task created on one PC, it can't find the application on the other one.
I assume the exe you're trying to execute is in several places but has the same name.
you have to distinguish the way you launch the exe and the way you work with one of its instances in memory.
thus, you could launch several instances of an object and you could use for this the "TestedApps" items.
for example, I added the testedapp "cmd" with a parameter :
TestedApps.Add('\\mylocation\myapp.exe', '/my parameter', 1, true, '');
as you see, you could run a cmd.exe from any location. so you could by the code, with some switching parameters, use the same script to launch one exe or another.
and... when the instance will be in memory, the aliases or the objects names in memory will be obviously the same...
