What is the best way to schedule automated TestComplete Script on TestExecute machine ?

For e.g. I need to run one TestComplete project after every 15 minutes . How we can do it ?


Please advise

Ran the same command directly from cmd window and it works - it launch the TE and run the Project Suite .

Did you create this batch file in Word or Google docs?  If so, I would paste it into Notepad or some other plain text editor and resave it.  It may have control characters in it that are causing a problem.

I wrote the script in Notepad. Saved as .bat extension.

Finally I figured out. 

Here we can mention the following commands in bat file when running multiple projects in sequence


"C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\TestExecute 14\Bin\TestExecute.exe"  "Path to the Project1.mds" /run /exit

"C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\TestExecute 14\Bin\TestExecute.exe" "path to Project2.mds" /run /exit


We can also continue running the GUI tests if close the RDP connection. The details are in the link below. 

To disconnect from Remote Desktop, run the following command on the remote computer (in the Remote Desktop window) as an Administrator:

%windir%\System32\tscon.exe RDP-Tcp#NNN /dest:console

RDP-Tcp#NNN is the ID of your current Remote Desktop session, for example, RDP-Tcp#0. You can see it in the Windows Task Manager on the Users tab, in the Session column.
