Packer Options Dialog

Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on March 25, 2022

The Packer Options Dialog customizes settings for compression of test results and arbitrary files using the slPacker object’s methods. To call the dialog, right-click the TestExecute icon () in the notification area (tray), select Options from the ensuing context menu and then select Engines | Packer from the tree displayed on the left side of the resulting Options dialog.

You can change the following options --

  • Archivers - Specifies the list of archiving tools that can be used to pack or extract test results and other files. For each tool in the list, you specify its name, which must be unique among other archivers listed (the Name column), the location of the executable that will pack results (the Packer Executable column) and the location of the executable that will extract results (the Unpacker Executable column). For some archivers these are different executables; if the same executable is used for both packing and extraction, it should be specified twice. To modify these settings directly in the list, select an appropriate column and press F2. (Note that the unpacking functionality is currently not implemented. The column is reserved for future implementation.)
    Note: In order for TestExecute to use a custom archiver the latter must support long file names.

    The list always includes four default archivers, which cannot be deleted. These are RAR, Internal Zip, WinZip and ARJ32.

    To add a custom archiving tool to the list, click Add Custom Archiver, and in the resulting Archiver Properties dialog enter a name for this archiver and specify the command line parameters used to extract files.

    To modify settings of an existing custom archiving tool, select the desired archiver in the list, click Configure Archiver and use the ensuing Archiver Properties dialog.

    To remove a custom archiving tool from the list, select it and click Remove Archiver.

  • Configurations - Specifies the list of archiving configurations that can be used to compress test results. Each configuration has its own name (which must be unique among other archivers listed) and defines an archiver (it can be one of those specified in the Archivers option), a set of options to be applied to the archiver and the default archive file extension. By default, there are four configurations: for the RAR archiver, Internal Zip, WinZip, and ARJ32.

    To add a custom configuration to the list, click Add Configuration and use the subsequent Packer Configuration dialog to set up the new configuration.

    To modify configuration settings, select the desired configuration in the list, click Configure and use the ensuing Packer Configuration dialog.

    To remove the chosen configuration from the list, click Remove.

  • Script configuration - Specifies which of the existing archiving configurations will be used when calling methods of the slPacker object.
