Reinstalling your Test Controller keeping environments intact

So you have probably quickly found out that if you ever have to rebuild your test controller isn’t possible from the installer provided.

Here are some steps to help make the process a little easier:

  1. Locate the QTControllerConfig.xml file and back it up to a safe location.  This file is usually located in your Visual Studio install location in the Common7\IDE folder.

  2. Rebuild the machine with the same name as needed

  3. Reinstall the test controller on the machine you just built out.

  4. Replace the default QTControllerConfig.xml file on the machine with the file you backed up in step 1

  5. Restart the machine.
