Re: TestComplete command line problems

What if you run TestComplete.exe at a standard Windows command prompt and not in Powershell?  Does that make a difference?

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.

Strange. That did work. Any idea why?

Honestly... I don't know.  It just seemed like something to try, in case there's something specifically in the PowerShell environment that triggers opening anything as a project.

Re: TestComplete command line problems

I've reproduced the issue on my side.

Try use "Start-Process TestComplete.exe". Also if you need to use some parameters read help info for PowerShell "Start-Process" command.

This did work. Thank you!

 

I did figure out why it was having problems when I switch to a different computer. I was opening TestComplete with the subprocess Python libary and on the first computer Python was installed for just the user and on the second it was installed for the whole computer.
