Count the number of instances
I'm trying to find a way to count the number of instances of an application without throwing an error. Part of my check is to launch a second instance, and verify that the application detects another instance running, and alerts the user. I don't want to stop testing when using Sys.Process("name", 2).Exists(). Is there a place where I can safely (without an error) count the number of instances for manual validation? Do I need to do this externally?

hi @BrianSmart -
Are you looking to validate this internally or externally? Either can be done.
I want to validate it internally without turning off "stop on error" and without running external scripts.
For this I would suggest the following.
Create a second object in the NameMapping which is mapped using the index number:
In your test build an If...Then statement:
The statements themselves can be customized and of course if you did not want to log a warning you do not have too - just used that as an example.
Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.
To manually count this, you can see what processes are running via the object browser: https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/exploring-apps/object-browser/about.htm...
