Silent Test Runner Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests only

This dialog box enables you to simulate the way a UFT One test runs from LoadRunner Professional and Application Performance Management and to verify that your UFT One test is compatible with LoadRunner Professional and Application Performance Management.

You must have a valid license installed with UFT One to run tests with the Silent Test Runner. The Silent Test Runner uses the same license installed with UFT One to run tests.

Open the Silent Test Runner from the Windows Start menu or by running <UFT One installation folder>\bin\SilentTestRunner.exe.

  • If you want to run tests with the Silent Test Runner, you must install the Samples component in the Custom Setup screen of the installation wizard.

  • You can invoke only one instance of Silent Test Runner and you can specify only one test to run.

  • You cannot use the ResultDir environment variable when running a test from Silent Test Runner.
