Running Windows application tests in parallel

Is it possible to run tests targetted at a Windows application in parallel?  I saw there were distributed tests for doing something similar but I was looking to run them all on the same physical machine.  I am looking to simulate something similar to a load test on a terminal server for the application under test.

  • Hi Jarrett,

    No, different tests cannot run in parallel. TestComplete performs actions with the tested application's GUI (clicks, keystrokes, etc.) in the same way as a user does, and it requires control over your PC. So, if you perform one GUI test, you cannot run other tests at the same time as this will break the testing process.

    You can use virtual workstations to run several tests simultaneously. Also, you can run tests one by one.
