3. Running Builds

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

After you create a build definition that includes your AQTime Test items, run the build.


The computer where your build will run AQTime Test items must have the following software installed:

  • Team Foundation Server with the Team Foundation Build Service component.

    – or –

    Team Foundation Build Service.

    – or –

    Test Agent for Microsoft Visual Studio.

    If your AQTime project launches the application and requires a user to interact with it, the Build Service or the Test Agent must be running as an interactive process. Otherwise, the application interface will not be visible on the screen and not available for user interaction.
  • One of the Microsoft Visual Studio versions supported by AQTime (optional, if you use Team Foundation Build 2010 or 2012).

  • AQTime with the appropriate integration feature installed.

  • If your AQTime Test item uses a TestComplete project to simulate user actions over the application during the profiling, TestComplete or TestExecute must be installed.
