Ranorex License - Command options

Post by elis » Wed Feb 26, 2014 12:03 pm


Is there a way to release Ranorex floating license using CLI command ?
I am trying to automatically release the license when the test finishes running. (as part of Continuous Integration process)

As far as I know, there is currently no way to unload/kill the license from code. In a theory, license should be unloaded after finishing the test run. But I personally experienced 5 minutes or so delay between terminating the test/RX Studio and unloading license. So I too vote for the possibility to forcibly kill/unload the license from code.

Hi eli & odklizec

Unfortunately it is not possible and also not recommended to relase the license via code.

Since the license will automatically released after a test is executed, it is possible to wait for a valid license in the next testrun,using the "WaitForValidLicense() Method" as described here (http://www.ranorex.com/Documentation/Ra ... ense_1.htm )

Kind regards
