Runtime Loader Files

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on July 17, 2024
Flash Player has reached end of life on December 31, 2020. Support for Flash and Flex applications is now deprecated in TestComplete and will be removed in a future release.

The information in this topic applies to web tests that locate web objects by using internal identification properties provided by TestComplete and run in local environments.

Runtime Loader files are shipped along with TestComplete and installed to the <TestComplete>\Open Apps\Flex\RuntimeLoader folder. The folder contains the following files:

  • RuntimeLoader.html - A wrapper web page for the Runtime Loader application.

  • RuntimeLoader.swf - A Runtime Loader module used to load Flash and Flex applications compiled for using only local file system resources, without network access. In other words, this module of the Runtime Loader application was compiled with the -use-network compiler option set to false and it is used for loading SWF modules that were compiled with the same value of this compiler option.

  • RuntimeLoaderLWN.swf - A Runtime Loader module that is used for loading Flash and Flex applications compiled for using network resources. That is, this Runtime Loader module was compiled with the -use-network compiler option set to true and it is used for loading SWF modules compiled with the same value of this compiler option.

If your Flash or Flex application under test was compiled for using local file system resources, the page uses the RuntimeLoader.swf module to load the application to be tested. If the tested application was compiled for using network resources, the page uses the RuntimeLoaderLWN.swf module.
