Re: QTP and Citrix

I could not understand your issue.

Below are suggestions for using QTP via Citrix or RDP.

Citrix Presentation server 4.5 is also now supported in QTP 10.0

Read me says:
When running QuickTest on a remote machine using a Remote Desktop
Connection session (RDC) or using Citrix, if the remote session is
minimized during the run session, or if the computer on which the
application is being tested is logged off or locked, the following problems
may occur:

the test or component run session may fail

steps that contain keyboard or focus operations may fail

the Test Results still image capture and/or the Screen Recorder may
display a black screen

steps for which the device level replay is configured to use the mouse
(instead of browser events) to run mouse operations may fail. (You set the
device level replay using a Setting.WebPackage("ReplayType") statement
or by setting the Replay type option in the Advanced Web Options dialog

Workaround: If you are using Citrix or a Remote Desktop Connection
session to run a test or component, do not minimize the session window,
and make sure that the computer on which the application is being
tested is not logged off or locked.

Re: QTP and Citrix

Hi Shivaram, Could you pls clarify me the below one.

When we test the Application through Citrix,

does the AUT & QTP both needs to be installed in the remote server ?

Is it possible to test the Application through Citrix, if the QTP is installed in the Local PC & the application is installed in the Remote server ?
If yes please help me how can I do that, I am unable to recognise the objects through Citrix.

Re: QTP and Citrix

I have QTP 10 setup as a published app on a XenApp5 Citrix server.  The Application will launch, but there is a DLL error when attempting to connect to the backend service unless the application user account has admin access to the XenAapp server.


Security is not allowing us to grant admin access to these users as it is a shared XenApp server.  Has anyone else solved this issue?  Ian
