    Any way to schedule tests to run

    Hello,

    I am curious if it is possible to set up a time for scripts to run automatically with SilkTest. I read at one time someone wrote to make a loop and use sleep statement to try and set it off at a certain time.

    Anyone have any ideas that can help me do this or a good solution.

    Thanks..
    Weekend is almost near

    You can use the Windows Scheduler that comes with your OS. Create a batch file to launch partner.exe and have your task call the batch file. Your batch file should look something like this:

    partner -q -opt c:\scripts\option_set.opt -resexport -resextract -r C:\scripts\regression_login.t %1

    Re: Any way to schedule tests to run

    Here's a function that I used to use for that purpose. I put this function in the first testcase that copied the new nightly build files that were compiled in the wee hours every morning. (I had a later version of this function that also included an optional boolean argument to check that the day of week was a weekday, but I don't seem to have that one handy.)

    You can also check out a sheduling program you can download at www.arcanadev.com. The scheduling program also lets you schedule things to occur on other machines.

    I used the scheduled tasks option available with windows, and a perl file that installs the latest build before it launches partner with all my arguments that I need.
