Testing Framework: Provide Packages via Telerik Private NuGet Feed
Please provide the free "Testing Framework" assemblies via your NuGet Feed.
As of now, I require the "ArtOfTest.WebAii.dll" for automation and testing of our WPF-Application which includes "Telerik UI for WPF". I am already installing those UI Components from the Telerik NuGet Package.
(Total attached files size should be smaller than 20mb. Allowed extensions: .zip, .rar, .jpg, .png, .gif)

Hi Wes,

I am really sorry to hear that this is one of the reasons to move away from Test Studio.

While it is true that currently we cannot implement such a change, we will definitely consider your feedback if an opportunity shows up in front of us.

Thank you for your feedback once again. 

Regards,

Hey Progress Team,

It is terribly disappointing that this is the end result. All it does is make your product less accessible with modern processes, and is also one of the reasons why our company decided to ultimately move away from Test Studio.

Really unfortunate.

Hello guys,

I just wanted to add some more details on why introducing a NuGet package won't work. Basically, the main reason is that, the installer performs some complex and "admin" required tasks, such as:
 - Registering COM components
 - MIME filters 
 - Registry Keys
 - Templates etc.

that cannot be simply migrated to a nuget package, that will work for everyone.

Hope this makes the case more clear and why we cannot accommodate this case.  

Regards,
Nikolai

Hello Bernd, Thomas,

Thank you for contacting us to share your ideas. 

Sadly I have to admit that the Progress Testing Framework requires to be installed through its installation file and providing the assemblies via a NuGet package is not an option. The reason for this requirement is that the installer performs plenty of necessary actions beyond deploying the dll files. 

Please, excuse us for any inconvenience the above may cause and thank you for your understanding. 

Regards,

Modern CI/CD dictates we be able to compile and run the tests at project build time.  Please prioritize this request.
