Remote debug a test run

Post by Knulli » Mon Jul 05, 2021 4:08 pm

First: We like to test our own developed Win32 Applications (Written in Embarcadero Delphi).

Is there a way to debug a test remotely?
I do not like to install Ranorex Studio each time i have a need to debug a test (find an error in my test procedure, no ned to debug the Delphi-App, this will be done in Delphi-IDE) on the PC, where the test should run.

So, i want to install Ranorex Studio only once (on a development machine) and run my test on the customer PC (before delivery) in the production hall. If something wents wrong and i need to debug the test i need a remote debugger. Otherwise (no need to debug) it should only run a small "runtime" or test app for testing our Delphi App.

Is it possible?

Second: Is there an german spaeking support, when i need help with Ranorex Studio?

Hi Knulli,

I'm afraid, installing Ranorex Studio on remote desktop is the only way how to debug AUT on remote machine. I'm not aware of any remote-debugging possibility.

As for second question, I'm not quite sure about this, but since the Austrian Ranorex team was dismissed last year, I believe that the Ranorex support is now only in English.

This looks like a very old topic, but it's still a current problem for me.

I want to remote-debug a software that is made with Delphi. I need to debug on a test system that is running Ranorex Studio. I am using the Delphi remote debugger, and I am able to start the application in debug mode.

As soon as I start the Ranorex test, Delphi loses the connection, crashes, and the remote debugger does too.

I'm not sure if this is the issue, but I think that Ranorex might be conflicting with the remote debugger.

When I run the Ranorex test locally on my computer and use BDS for debugging, everything is fine.
