Test Agent and Test Controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i want to run tests automatic but without an environment.
    Therefore i installed the Test Agent and the Test Controller locally but there were an error.
    logFile:
    [11/24/09,11:21:51] VC 9.0 Runtime (x86): [2] Setup detection logic indicates that this component is NOT installed, but MSI indicates that it IS already installed.  This is usually caused by an incompatible previous version being installed on the system.  Check in Add Remove Programs and uninstall any previous versions of VC 9.0 Runtime (x86).
    [11/24/09,11:21:51] VC 9.0 Runtime (x86): [2] Error: Installation failed for component VC 9.0 Runtime (x86). MSI returned error code 1603 [11/24/09,11:21:52] VS70pgui: [2] DepCheck indicates VC 9.0 Runtime (x86) is not installed.
    [11/24/09,11:21:52] VS70pgui: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft Visual Studio Team Test Controller 2010 Beta 2 - ENU was not attempted to be installed.

    Visual Studio is installed locally, Win XP SP2 and
    TFS 2010 is installed on a virtual server

    Thanks for answering

    best regards

    Florian

  • Hi,

    You can still have both VS 2008 and VS 2010 installed on the same box for your development. However, for test execution, you can choose either the VS 2008 controller/agent setup or VS 2010 controller/agent setup and uninstall the other controller/agent setup.

    Thanks,

  • You can install VS 2008 abd VS 2010 on the same machine but for controllers and agents you will need to maintain separate machines for 2010 and 2008 controllers and agents, you cannot install different versions on the same machine.

  • Was 2008 installed on the same machine? Can you go to "add/remove programs" and ensure that all 2008 components have been uninstalled?

  • Yes VS 2008 is installed too.
    But i need VS 08 for developing. I only want to test in VS 2010 Beta2 the new testing tools.
    Now i have installed the test agent and the test controller on a virtual server.
    Here is the Team Foundation Server installed too.
    I think this is possible ?!?!

  • Ah ok - sure, you can have VS 2008 and 2010 installed side by side on the same box. What is it that you intend to do however? If you just want to run test automation locally, do not install any controller or agent. Just install the 2010 client and you can run tests locally on the same machine.
    If I understand your second q correctly, you are trying to install controller, agent and TFS on one single machine. Yes - that should work too.

  • So I have 2 machines, one controller and one agent. They have 2008 versions installed on it. Now as our development shifts vs 2010, I need to install the new versions. But it gives me an error saying i need to uninstall 2008 versions first. However, both for historical reasons and current development I need to keep my 2008 environment up and running. Adding more machines is not justifiable. 

    Is there any way to set this up side by side?
