About Hosts Editor

Applies to TestComplete 15.42, last modified on August 01, 2022

A project that includes the NetworkSuite project item stores a collection of hosts where this project can run other projects or project suites during distributed testing. These hosts store references to remote computers. This collection may also contain computers that are not used to run tasks, that is, you can add as many computers as you want and use them later.

To modify properties of hosts in the Hosts collection of the Network Suite project item, use the Hosts editor.

Below is a sample view of the Hosts editor:
