run tests on another computer

Hi Guys,
I have the following scenario. I already created about 10 desktop functional UI test cases. So far I execute them on demand on the same machine on which i do record the scripts.

 

Now I have a task to ran this 10 test cases on another machine. On another machine I will have my product  under test installed. 

I am wondering can I somehow execute my test cases against this other machine which have only product under test installed?
What approach will you suggest me to use ?

 

Kind Regards

Re: run tests on another computer

There has to be either TC or TE installed on that other machine.  This is what does the actual test execution.  Without one of those two applications installed on that other machine, there's no way of running the tests over there.

 

With a copy of TC or TE installed over there, you can then utilize the Network Suite feature to execute the test on the remote box but you do need the install on the remote box.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: run tests on another computer

In order to run the tests on the other machine, you need either a license of TestComplete or a license of TestExecute in order to execute the tests.  If you have that, then it's a simple matter of running the tests as you would on your own machine.

Re: run tests on another computer

Yes we currently have 2 floating Test Complete licenses. 
Let me ask two more questions.

 
Should I install the test complete on the other machine ?


Is it possible somehow to tell to my project suite to be executed against the other machine without installing the TC there as well ?

The easiest solution: Copy the project suite folder to the other machine.  You can then execute on that other machine.
