Disable (or edit timeout) Sequential Status Dialog

Using TestStand version 4.1 and above.

In the "GeneralOptions.config" file, you can edit the Sequential Status Dialog timeout parameter. Browse to (hidden folders)

On WinXP: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Virinco\WATS\GeneralOptions.config"
On Win7/8/10: "C:\ProgramData\Virinco\WATS\GeneralOptions.config

Set the value = 0 (-1 = No Timeout, 0 = No Dialog, 60 = 60 seconds timeout)

<add key="SequentialStatusTimeout" value="0" />


Optionally, insert the "WATSOptions" callback and edit the parameter on the fly as shown in this picture:
