I installed TestComplete on virtual machine, and I connect to virtual machine with remote desktop,

but Testcomplet on virtual machine did not recognize my device,

Is it possible to run mobile tests on virtual machine with remote desktop?

Hi,

Yes, this should be possible if the mobile device is recognized as locally connected to the VM.

Thanks for your reply,
I use remote desktop network gate
(http://www.net-usb.com/usb-over-rdp/) at my local machine (where USB device is physically present) and at the remote one (which I am connecting to).
but when i type "adb devices" at the virtual machine, adb did not recognize any devices :((

Hi,

This is the root of the problem. TestComplete uses adb to control mobile device and the tested application. TestComplete will not be able to work with mobile device as long as adb cannot recognize mobile device attached to the desktop.
So you need to find a way to make adb to recognize the attached device.
