How to setup running testexecute to run from network

I have testcomplete14 on the network and shared the folder

From a VM that has testexecute, i open the pjs file to run the test

when i click on run, i get this error.  

The test log files cannot be created.  Reason: the operation completed successfully.  Continue the execution?

How can i fix this

Hi @Madhit,

 

Could you please make sure that you run TestExecute as an Admin? You can find the steps here:

If this doesn't work, perhaps you can save your test log locally via Log.SaveResultsAs.

Re: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

The user under which TestExecute is runnning needs to have read/write access to the folders where the project files are stored.  It sounds like it has read-only access at the moment.

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: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

I have allowed full access to Everyone and Im the one logged into both machines when running the tests.

When i manually go to the folder from my VM through file explorer, im able to access the folder and files

Hi,

 

Robert is correct.

Check that:

a) TestExecute is scheduled to run under the same account that you use for verification;

b) Check that this account has read-write permissions for both file system and share.

Re: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

Thank you for the responses, I have added full control for the files and subfolders and still getting the same error

Im able to open the .pjs file on the network.  When i run, i get this.

The network file '.......pjs.tcNET cannot be created.  Do you want to open the project suite anyhow?

Is there anything more i can do?

Re: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

Hi,

 

The network file '.......pjs.tcNET cannot be created.

This means that given user account lacks create\write permissions. If you already granted full permissions to file system, check and grant permissions for the network share.

Re: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

sounds more missing write permissions for the folder where the file is to be created.

Re: How to setup running testexecute to run from network

No, I haven’t been able to. It seems like I gave the right permissions.
