Build Ranorex from command line?

Post by daa » Mon Jun 22, 2009 11:45 am

Currently I'm working on the support tools for our test suites, which are compiled into a DLL. This means that I'm constantly switching between projects in Ranorex Studio: change toolset, compile toolset, switch, change & run test code, switch back to toolset, ...

So, can I compile the tools into their DLL from the command line? I can then edit in another editor and just keep Studio on the testing code.

Yes, you can build RanorexStudio projects from the command line using MSBuild. Just use the following command:
%systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\MSBuild.exe MyProject.csproj
To compile a solution, you might need to change the file ending of the solution from "rxsln" to "sln", otherwise MSBuild sometimes reports an error.

You can, however, open two instances of RanorexStudio as well and work with those two instances concurrently.
