Is there a difference between TestExecuteLite.exe and TestExecute.exe?

There are no articles in TestComplete documentation that mention TestExecuteLite.exe. However, when I look at the TestComplete files that were installed, I do not see any TestExecute.exe executables within the bin directories. I only see a TestExecuteLite.exe. I am assuming that these are the same thing and guessing that the information in the below link is also applicable to TestExecuteLite.exe. I just did not want to incorrectly assume.

  • I thought TestExecute.exe would be downloaded/installed when I installed TestComplete. I wanted to try running TestExecute.exe from the command line. However, I cannot find TestExecute.exe. From an email exchange with Sales, it looked like 1 TestExecute license came with the TestComplete pro bundle. But I can't find an executable called TestExecute.exe. I can only find an executable called TestExecuteLite.exe.

    Below is what should come with the Pro Bundle:

    from Sales:

    Included in the TestComplete Pro Bundle is:

    • 1 TestComplete Platform, which includes:
      • 1 Web testing module
      • 1 Desktop testing module
      • 1 Mobile testing module
      • 1 Intelligent Quality Add-on
    • 1 TestExecute license – this is our lightweight version of the tool that allows you to ONLY run tests that were already created on the Platform.

  • Hi Christina,

    TestExecute is a resource-friendly utility created to run TestComplete tests on computers where TestComplete is not installed.

    TestExecute can only run tests. To create tests, you use TestComplete.

    Here is a link to the TestExecute documentation;

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Regards,

    Shane

      TestExecute is included within the TestComplete pro bundle but it is a separate installation.

      When you are assigned the PRO license from SLM you will have the following email which contains a link to the installation exe for TestComplete and TestExecute;
