Ranorex rebuilding often

Post by tallahassee101 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 4:15 pm


With the newer Ranorex 3.3, there seems to be a lot of unnecessary rebuilding. I can do a rebuild all of my solution and then immediately try to run a selected item in a recording and it seems as if everything is getting rebuilt again according to the output window. Is there a way to turn this off? I have 8 projects in my Ranorex solution and it is making some of the simple tasks that used to be quick take much longer.

Hi Nick,

there is no rebuild done when you press "Play", just a build. Either way it should be quite fast.
Do you run your project on a virtual machine? This may cause delays.

One thing you can do is to close the not required codemoduls, repositories and recordings and turn off the code synchronization (Tools - Options... - Ranorex Code Generation: un-tick the "automatically update and synchronize..." option).

Are there many reports in your report-folder? There is done a refresh each time you press play which means that the "poject-tree" is reconstructed. Delete the reports from the report-folder to speed up your test-runs.

Kind regards,
