System Requirements

Rover is a plugin for Enterprise Tester  and allows users to be able to work with ET data offline.

Getting started is easy and there are only a few simple requirements:

  1. A working instance of Enterprise Tester that can be accessed over the internet or through a network (for uploading and downloading data). 
  2. Rover license applied to Enterprise Tester
  3. A Windows device with the .NET Framework 4.5 installed 

Enterprise Tester

Rover is compatible with Enterprise Tester  4.10 and above. Enterprise Tester must be installed on a server that is accessible either through the internet or through your office network. This is so that you can access Enterprise Tester to download the Execution Sets, individual Script Assignments and Incidents before going offline as well as being able to access Enterprise Tester again to upload your results and updated and new incidents.

Applying your Rover License

To apply your Rover License, you will need to have Administrator rights to Enterprise Tester.  

Navigate to the Admin tab, expand the Extensions folder and double click on Rover.

Add the license text ( if you do not have a license text, please contact Catch Sales) to the License Text field:

.NET Framework

Rover requires .NET 4.5 to be installed.

When installing the .Net Framework 4.5 you have two options - either installing from a "web download" (a small download, which will then install only the components you require) or you can download a "redistributable" which is a large file containing all the files necessary for the .Net Framework 4.5 to be installed on any machine.

If you plan on installing the Framework on more than one machine within your organization it is suggested that you use the redistributable, to avoid multiple downloads.

The web downloader can be downloaded from:

It is approximately 1mb in size.

The redistributable can be downloaded from:

It is approximately 50mb in size.
