Automated testing overview


While manual regression testing is possible using the session comparison feature, automated unattended testing is purely command line driven.


Typically, command line options allow Memory Validator to run by specifying:


the target program to run

arguments to pass to the target program

the working directory to run in

a baseline session to compare with

where and how to save results

whether to run with or without the user interface

Usually Memory Validator would exit between automated tests, but it can be made to stay running if necessary.


seeAlsoSee the command line reference for an alphabetical listing all the available commands.



To run 32 bit memory validator run C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Verify\Memory Validator x86\memoryValidator.exe


To run 64 bit memory validator run C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Verify\Memory Validator x64\memoryValidator_x64.exe



Command line argument usage


There are a few basic rules to remember when using the command line arguments:


separate arguments by spaces

quote arguments if they contain spaces

some arguments are only useful in conjunction with others

some arguments are incompatible with others


If your command line is very long, consider using -commandFile to specify a command file for your arguments.
