HP QuickTest Professional - Batch File

Hi, I would like to know how to create a simple batch file that can be used to schedule to launch my Tests using HP QuickTest Pro. There's some examples with the use of VB script but I am not fond of coding and couldnt make it successfully.

Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about QTP test stored in ALM/Quality Center? Or test stored somewhere in the file system?

If you are looking at test stored in the file system, you should repost this question in the QTP forum, since that doesn't have anything to do with Quality Center. The QTP forum is

If you are trying to run QTP tests stored in Quality Center, the only way to do that is with a program written to interface to the QC Open Test Architecture API. That can't be done in a simple batch file.

There is a knowledge base article on the HP support site that offers the source and compiled code for an executable that will provide this functionality. The code is offered "as-is" with no actual support from HP. You have to have a valid support contract to access the article.

Hope that helps.
