GUI automation test

I am trying to run the example provided in gui-test-auto with a standard windows installer as *.exe format, but it continuously gives me this error

--- Installer STDOUT ---
--- Installer STDERR ---
Invalid or corrupt jarfile C:\Users\bandobast\Desktop\TestProduct\TestProduct_Build_Output\Default_Configuration\Web_Installers\InstData\Windows\NoVM\install.exe
--- Installer END ---


Does this gui automation test only work with *.jar installers? Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: GUI automation test

In both cases, the error messages suggests that a .jar is expected to be run, and not an .exe file.

Executing .exe files for installer automation

Hi,
To run a executable for GUI automation other than .jar files you have to use Runtime getRuntime() exec( -gui_auto:12060). Most of the methods supported for a .jar installer would not work for a .exe installer.
