Did u see WinRunner Help..? Otherwise see the Users Guide.
Use the Debug mode to help you identify bugs in a test script. Running a test in Debug mode is the same as running a test in Verify mode, except that debug results are always saved in the debug folder. Because only one set of debug results is stored, the Run Test dialog box does not open automatically when you run a test in Debug mode. When you finish running a test in Debug mode, the Test Results window does not open automatically. To open the Test Results window and view the debug results, you can click the Test Results button on the main toolbar or choose Tools > Test Results. Once you run a test in Debug mode, that remains the default run mode for the current WinRunner session until you activate another mode.
Use the Verify mode to check your application. WinRunner compares the current response of your application to its expected response. Any discrepancies between the current and expected responses are captured and saved as verification results. When you finish running a test, by default the Test Results window opens for you to view the verification results.You can save as many sets of verification results as you need. To do so, save the results in a new folder each time you run the test. You specify the folder name for the results using the Run Test dialog box. This dialog box opens each time you run a test in Verify mode.
** Running Verify Mode uses up a lot of hard drive sapce because everytime a test is run WinRunner creates a new folder **
Use the Update mode to update the expected results of a test or to create a new expected results folder. For example, you could update the expected results for a GUI checkpoint that checks a push button, in the event that the push button default status changes from enabled to disabled. Note that after a test has run in Update mode or been aborted, Verify automatically becomes the default run mode again. By default, WinRunner saves expected results in the exp folder, overwriting any existing expected results.
