JavaScriopt format script extension install

I do believe I am doing something wrong, potentially dumb even. Smiley Happy

 

https://community.smartbear.com/t5/TestComplete-Functional-Web/How-to-format-jscript-code-in-Test-Co...

 

I had previously had this extension installed. I had to uninstall TC for a support case that was being worked on. I came to the referenced handy dandy thread. I took the zip and changed the file extension to tcx as I understood the instructions. I double clicked on the file. I chose the default desintation (see photo attached). 

 

I opened TC since it was closed when I did the above. I do not see the icon for this extension that I had before when the code editor is open. I checked the Install Script Extension window and do not see it in the list of available extensions. I went to Tools | Options | Engines |Script Extensions and added that folder location...

 

SOmeone please point me to what I am doing wrong? Thanks

With the extension installed, this is what I see.

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 see it in the destination folder.

It's not an obvious problem but a simple one.

If you open that zip file you got, you see it contains, not the files directly, but a folder that contains the files.  Extract those files, create a NEW ZIP file containng ONLY the files outside of the internal folder, change the extension... voila.

Ahhhhhhh that is what you meant in the other thread. Well, I am closer. I see the extension in the install screen (attached). Still no icon with code editor open. Thanks Robert!

I am laughing to myself since I was sure you were going to answer something that clearly demonstrates I am a moron. Again. Smiley Happy Thank you

Re: JavaScriopt format script extension install

Well.... it's not exactly obvious so I wouldn't put it as you being a Moron.  :-)  I think this has to do with how TestComplete handles those design time extensions... it kind of puts them all in the same drop down.  Not EXACTLY certain why, but there it is.
