Add Path to Environment Variables

It can get tedious to always have to navigate to the Bin directory each time you want to call the execution engine. A great workaround is to register this path with Windows so that you can call ArtOfTest.Runner.exe from any directory within the command prompt.

Windows 10

1.  From the Desktop, right-click the Start button and click System.

System

2.  After the System screen appears, select Advanced system settings.

3.  This will open the System Properties window. Select the Advanced tab and then the Environment Variables button.

4.  Under the System variables section, scroll down and highlight the Path variable. Click the Edit button.

5.  In the Edit screen, click New and add the path to the Bin directory of Test Studio. In this example, I added C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Test Studio\Bin.

Edit System Variable

6.  Click the OK button. You now have access to the execution engine from any directory on your computer. Make sure you start a new instance of the command prompt to get the updated variables.

Windows 7

5.  In the Edit screen, append the path to the Bin directory to the end of the string that already exists in the Variable value text box (with a semicolon before the path). In this example, I added ";C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Test Studio\Bin - Notice that I added a semicolon to separate the previous path from the path to the ArtOfTest.Runner.exe directory.
