Run RemoteLaunch without being logged in

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

we installed RemoteLaunch on the same server as SpiraTest. But to execute tests with RemoteLaunch I have to be logged in on the SpiraTest server and then start RemoteLaunch. If I log off then RemoteLaunch is terminated.
I tried to configure a task to start RemoteLaunch on system start (I see it in the task list), but automated tests are not started.

How can we configure RemoteLaunch to start and execute tests without being logged in?

Best regards

Hi Stephan

RemoteLaunch is designed to run a as desktop GUI application so it needs a logged-in user. The alternate RemoteLaunchX (cross-platform) runs as a simple Java executable and can be executed without a logged-in user. Have you seen that?

Hi Sarah,

I found RemoteLaunchX in the manual, but didn't give it a try yet.
But now I will. ;-)

Best regards
