    Hi Sébastien,

    We have now discussed this and we do not plan to add support for TestStand (TS) environments by default from the add-on installer. The advantage today is that the Client do not need to activate TS to install the add on files if you have multiple TS versions installed. Also, it seems that you can have multiple and distributed .tsenv files in the TS environment, which make it even more complex for the WATS installer during client upgrade (would have to install the add-on files on multiple locations, including the "none active" environments).

    One suggestion would be that you run a custom script (maybe as a Station callback?) copying the files from C:\Program Files\Virinco\WATS\SupportFiles into your active environment folder(s).

    Hi,

    OK I understand.

    I didn't know the files were available in C:\Program Files\Virinco\WATS\SupportFiles : I installed the plugin, then isolated the WATS files, then copied/pasted them into my TS environement.

    Thanks for the tip.

    @Sébastien. Good. Just be aware that the Client installer will also clean (remove) files no longer in use, so it might be a good idea to compare the content of the support zip files with your TS environment.
