Can you run two or more instances of eValid at the same time

Afternoon:

One of our testers was curious if eValid can do two [or more] eValid instances without interfering with each other when they are executing?

Thanks for posting KassaB.

Let's review the eValid architecture a bit...

eValid is a free-standing Windows program (executable) that implements standard browsing functions using the same underlying technical support libraries as the IE browser.

The only difference between IE and eValid is the look and feel of browsing...anything that you can do in IE you can do in eValid.

This applies to use of the desktop (which is shared with all of the executing processes on your machine) and the use of the cache (which is also a shared between instances of the IE browser).

Here are the manual pages that apply:

http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... ement.html

http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... .mode.html

So, to answer your question: provided that you have a test that does not require use of the desktop (we call that "desktop safe") and assuming that your are running your tests without reliance on the cache, then any two [or more] copies of eValid do not interfere with each other.
