Configuring Custom Archiver

Applies to TestExecute 14.74, last modified on March 01, 2021

You use the Archiver Properties dialog to specify properties of a new custom archiving tool to be added to the list of available archivers and/or to modify settings of an existing custom archiving tool that is already part of this list in the Packer Options dialog.

To call the dialog, click Add Custom Archiver or Configure Archiver in the Packer Options dialog:

Archiver Properties Dialog

In the Archiver name text box, specify a unique name for the archiving tool. This name will be shown in the Name column of the Archivers table in the Packer Options dialog.

In the Packer path text box, specify the fully qualified name to the packer executable. This value is shown in the Packer Executable column of the Archivers table in the Packer Options dialog.

The Unpacker path, Command line for nonrecursive extraction and Command line for nonrecursive extraction text boxes specify parameters used for unpacking archives. This functionality is currently not implemented. The edit boxes will be used in future versions of the product.

In the Maximum exit code text box, specify the maximum acceptable command-line error level for the archiver’s extraction executable. Any value that exceeds this limit is considered as an error code which is returned by the program upon its termination. For example, the value 2 indicates that error levels 0, 1 and 2 are acceptable.

Note: In order for TestExecute to use a custom archiver, the latter must support long file names.
