Let's say we have this:
What would "Desktop" be in this case? What if I want to run it such as:
variable = 'Desktop'
When I tried to get the type through Python, it returned Null (literally an empty space). The reason is I add a new build of a software - and it gets named "TestApp_2_4_20_0" and I want to use
variable = "TestApp_2_4_20_0"
To change quickly.
If that isn't possible, is it possible to rename a program added midscript?
installer = TestedApps.Add('path\\TestApp_2_4_20_0.exe') test = TestedApps.Items[installer] test.Run()
Then the tested app is still named 'TestApp_2_4_20_0', when it would make my life easier if I could rename it.

> What would "Desktop" be in this case?
Desktop in this case is an object provided by TestComplete. See documentation for more details on it.

i don't know exact syntax for Python, but all scripting languages have eval()/evaluate() function (or a kind) that accepts a string that must conform to the given script language requirements, evaluates it as a code and returns a result.
So, say, for JScript the code will be like this:
var variable = 'Desktop';
var cmd = 'Sys.' + variable + '.KeyDown(0x0D)';
You can do TestedApps.Add to add a new tested app. The code you have indicated should work.
But honestly, that seems a bit bulky. If you can run your application at a command line, you should be able to utilize the WshShell.Exec method to execute the command line to run your application without needing to add it to TestedApps.
