Waiting for a program is essentially the same as injection except that instead of injecting into a running program, Bug Validator watches for the process starting up and then injects.
If the process is a service, Bug Validator won't be able to attach to it as services can't have process handles opened by third party applications, even with Administrator privileges.
Choose one of these methods of waiting:
or click on the Wait (timer) icon on the session toolbar.
or use the shortcut
Wait for application
If your process is a service, Bug Validator won't be able to attach to it.
Services can't have process handles opened by third party applications, even with Administrator privileges.
There are two interface modes used while starting a program
•Wizard mode guides you through the tasks in a linear fashion
•Dialog mode has all options contained in a single dialog
All the options are the same - just in slightly different places
In this section we'll cover the Wizard mode first and the Dialog mode later.
The first page of the wizard lets you specify the application or choose one that you've waited for previously.
Choose the process and click Next >> for the next page of the wizard.
•Application to wait for type or Browse to set the application name to launch
•Full path shows the full path to the process executable in the list
•Image Name shows the short program name without path
•Reset clears the list
Depending on your application, and what you want to validate, you may want to start collecting data as soon as injection has happened, or do it later.
If your program has a complex start-up procedure, initialising lots of data, it may be much faster not to collect data until the program has launched.
If it's the startup procedure you want to validate, obviously start collecting data from launch.
The second page confirms the application and prompts you to start waiting:
•Wait for Process... starts waiting and then injects Bug Validator into the specified process, showing progress status
The button changes to show Stop Waiting. Click this to abandon the wait.
In Dialog mode, all the settings are in one dialog which looks very much like the first page of the wizard above.
The option to start collecting data is at the top, as is the Wait For Process button
