Installing TestComplete 14 - Completely offline

Hey community,

 

I'm trying to install TestComplete 14 on an isolated system which has absolutely NO access to the internet. Nonetheless, the procedure that SmartBear placed is to either use the .c2v/.v2c files to activate the license (internet needed) or install the license manager (internet needed). The product key is in fact available, but being able to activate it without an internet connection currently seems impossible.

 

Has anyone encountered a fix to this?

 

Thanks.

You need the internet for the two files only for the exchanging between SmartBear and local.  You can create the files and such on one machine, copy them to the new machine, and implement the license.

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.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

The instructions say "network access" rather than "internet access"  to the license manager.  We run ours with network access and it works fine.  That being said, if this is the only machine you are using for TestComplete, you could just install the license manager on the same machine.
