All script extensions that are installed in TestComplete are listed in the Script Extensions dialog. Here you can view all available extensions, their vendors and version numbers as well as disable or enable the extensions.

To install a script extension
  • Double-click the script extension package (.tcx file) in Windows Explorer or any other file manager. This will bring up the script extension installation program that asks you where you want to install the extension. The dialog lists the folders specified in the TestComplete Script Extensions Folders option, plus the default <TestComplete>\Bin\Extensions\ScriptExtensions folder.

  • In the dialog, select the folder where you want to install the extension. To install it in a custom folder, click Add New and choose the desired folder via the standard Browse For Folder dialog.

  • Click OK to finish.

The installer will copy the script extension package to the selected folder. If the package contains a CHM help file, the installer will extract this file from the package and place it to the same folder.

To install a script extension from a web page

When downloading a script extension package (.tcx) file from a web page, the browser asks you whether to open the extension after downloading or to simply save it your the computer.

If you choose to open the script extension, its installation program will be automatically launched after downloading.

If you choose to save the extension to the disk, you will need to launch its installation manually (see above).

To uninstall a script extension

To completely uninstall a script extension from your computer, just remove its file (.tcx) from the hard disk.

An alternative to removing an extension is disabling it (see below).

To enable or disable an extension

Script extensions can be disabled and enabled. Disabling an extension is similar to uninstalling it -- the extension becomes inactive, except that it is not removed from the TestComplete extension list that is shown in the Script Extensions dialog.

To enable an extension:

  • Select File | Install Script Extensions from the TestComplete main menu.

  • In the ensuing Script Extensions dialog, check the desired extension in the list.

  • Click OK to close the dialog and apply the changes.

To disable an extension:

  • Select File | Install Script Extensions from the TestComplete main menu.

  • In the ensuing Script Extensions dialog, check the desired extension in the list.

  • Click OK to apply the changes and close the dialog.

After disabling an extension, the actions and objects it provides are no longer available to TestComplete, but you can re-enable them at any time.
