Installing and Using QARun on a Winframe Server
Are there any constaints when installing QARun on a WinFrame Server? We are currently using this as a development environment, and QARun will not execute properly on the client machines. Therefore, I have to install QARun on the server itself in order to access the controls properly.
If anyone has any experience using QARun in this type of environment, and has some tips, please contact me at my email address.
Re: Installing and Using QARun on a Winframe Server
Actually, you have installed QARun in the proper manner... that is, you have installed QARun on (within) the Winframe Server.
QARun must run within the Winframe session because, in order to provide the best level of object recognition, we need to be able to interact with the Windows API... and, in the case of Winframe, the API is insulated from the user within Winframe.
As a result, if you install QARun on the client workstation, the result is somewhat similar to how we function with a terminal emulator: we are looking into what is essential a bitmap window which contains the application. As a result, we cannot perceive actual controls and can only interact by screen position and bitmap checks/events.
In contrast, by installing QARun within Winframe (as you have), we can actually interact with your applications on an API level. And that is what allows QARun to perform the high degree of object identification that makes it so useful.
