/SilentMode

Hi,

[TestExecute version 12.6]

 

I don't understand why since a few months when I launch TestExecute from command line with /exit, /DoNotShowLog, and /SilentMode parameters it don't launch TestExecute.

 

So I remove the /SilentMode parameter hoping that TestExecute will show me the issue, but no : at this moment it just works !

 

Is there any known issues with the /SilentMode please ?

 

Thank you,

 

Mehdi

Re: /SilentMode

One more idea: instead of simple command line try something like batch file (https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/working-with/automating/command-line-and-exit-codes/...) and check what exit code is returned when TE does not start. My guess is that it may be the problem related to the licensing, another instance still running, etc.

Re: /SilentMode

Hi Mehdi,

 

Just an idea: you may check if Silent.log file contains some useful info. https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/working-with/automating/command-line-and-exit-codes/..., \SilentMode parameter paragraph.

Re: /SilentMode

Thank you for this tip @AlexKaras !

But it don't write anything about the TE launch. I don't understand why, when I remove it, it works.

Re: /SilentMode

One possibility: If you are running a different version of TestExecute than the project was created in, there might be a converstion being attempted.  What happens when you add the "/ForceConversion" flag when you run in SilentMode?

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: /SilentMode

One more idea:
If I remember it right, I had an issue with TestExecute that /exit (or /e) parameter had to be the last one in the command line.

Does it help if you change your command line so that /e is at its end?

Re: /SilentMode

Hi Robert,

 

No all my TE and my TC are the same version, I convert at every major version of Smarbear's releases.

Re: /SilentMode

Ah, yes... if you're using floating licenses, it's entirely possible that the intermittent problems are that all the licenses are being consumed.

Re: /SilentMode

Hi,

The error code shown was "damaged installation", so I repaired it.

And it works now.

Thank you !
