Re: Best Tool to Automate Application hosted on Remote Desktop or Citrix

Hi

The problem with Citrix is that it is a presentation layer for all you can hope for is simple Windows recordings. You won't get the actual objects from the application being executed.

So I don't believe any tool can help

Thanks

Re: Best Tool to Automate Application hosted on Remote Desktop or Citrix

A colleague of mine had some success in the past by installing QTP (as was then) on the Citrix server and recording/running the tests from there.

From what I can remeber it was QTP v8.2 but it was not Citrix Xen app.

Hi

Correct - you could publish QTP on the Citrix farm if the intention is purely for execution. I have done this previously with 10 Servers to manage regression testing and then using Lab Management to schedule

Thanks
