Tuesday, October 30, 2007 12:01 PMHi,
I have written a wizard for setting up scheduled test executions using the command line tools that come with VSTS 2005.
Basically it just generates a batch file and creates a scheduled task in Windows scheduler to execute the batch. As the majority of the functionality is taken care of by the MS cmd line tools, this can do anything that a test executed from the interface can do, such as publishing results to a TFS server, or running a test set, or individual web/load test.
Is there any interest here for me to publish my code? If so I'll dedicate some of my bench time this week to tidying it up.

This sounds cool Paul. You may also want to post this in one (or more if appropriate) of the VSTS forums.
Tuesday, December 11, 2007 12:16 PMThere is a new thread about this tool.

I am not aware of the Scheduled test execution. But I am keen to know more about this ?
This seems to be quite interesting topic.
Wednesday, December 12, 2007 9:52 AMHi,
Basically what I mean by Scheduled test execution is that you can have a test server run a test or set of tests automatically at a specific time.
The wizard I have written generates a batch file which uses the MSTest.exe tool included in Team Test to run Visual Studio Tests (these can be unit tests, load tests, generic tests etc). A Windows scheduled task is also created and associated with the batch file so that the test server can run it automatically according to the schedule options you select such as run daily at 9 am or run once a month on the 17th at 10pm etc.
There is some other functionallity too such as using the TF.exe Get function to make sure the server has the latest version of the tests from the TFS server prior to running the scheduled task.
I've written some more about it in the thread i mentioned above. I'm planning to do some more work on this add some improvements in the new year.

I need to know the details... Actually I am struggling to get any such mechanism by which I can Schedule a Test to run on Predefined time for a test script recorded in Visual Studio 2010. It will be great if you please post me the steps by step instruction to do so.
