< Back

The execution server must be hosted on a 64-bit Windows machine. There are three pieces of additional software that must be installed and licensed on the Windows machine that hosts the server:

  1. VIP is Curiosity’s high-speed workflow automation engine, and is used to execute the automated tests.
  2. Chromedriver.exe. This is an open source tool for cross-browser test execution. It is included automatically in the set-up process below. You do not have to download it or perform any additional installation.
  3. Microsoft Excel must be installed and licensed on the machine that is used to set-up the execution server.

The job server must additionally be set up on the machine, and must be running for queued execution jobs to be performed.
