Subject: Desperate need for some help with QC client operation
I am on the hot seat to get QC up and running with iTest…four months for IT to get the test type and a couple of weeks for me. Here is what I am seeing.
Placed this in the system variables ‘HPQC_ITEST_WORKSPACE c:/iTest ‘per the documentation QC-DOC-IGC-340 Rev. 3 as to not use default workspace.
When I run the test set [a single test in this case] from Quality Center…it appears that the ENV is ignored and the test is launched with this location: file:/C:/DOCUME~1/mwalleig/LOCALS~1/Temp/TD_80/b15f6c50/Test/QC-BetaTest_3794/3794/3794/QC-BetaTest.fftc with no reference to the workspace (NO RESOURCES)
I have been playing with the itestcli.bat using a command like this: itestcli.bat -w "c:/iTest" "project://iTest_dev/test_cases/OverHeadDev/QC-BetaTest.fftc" and as you would expect it operates as expected. But utilizing any of the qc switches brings no joy what so ever.
Here is where I think my malfunction lies, within this same document it references 3rd party software to be installed - the first file [vcredist_x86.exe] auto selects its install location. C:\Documents and Settings\Mikew\Desktop\hpqcDownLoadsItest
And the second file [vbrun60sp6.exe] the document references to install queries for the install location - but the document defines no install location.
So the simple question is where is this stuff suppose to live? And is this the source of the above described issue?
Please let me know where I went astray… I’m at my wits end with this windows stuff. And looking at the 4.0 document I would anticipate the same scenario.
