Welcome to the Ranorex Support Portal

Create a new project

Solutions are organized into one or more projects. There are different project types in Ranorex Studio, but the test suite project is typically used to build a test. A test suite project contains one or more test suites, which in turn represent the structure of your test with its test cases and modules.

Solutions you create always come with a test suite project. You can also add more test suite projects or other types of projects to a solution. We recommend you create test suite projects with the project wizard. All other project types must be created with the blank project dialog.

In this chapter

Project wizard


Use the project wizard to quickly create a test suite project for desktop, web, or mobile tests.

To add a test suite project with the project wizard:

  1. In the projects view of an open solution, right-click the solution.

  2. Click Add > Project wizard…

  3. Select the test suite type (e.g. Desktop) and click Continue.

The following steps are the same as those for ⇢ creating a new solution with the RocketStart wizard.

When you’ve finished the project wizard, Ranorex Studio will display the test suite in the test suite view.

  1. The new test suite project in the projects view.

  2. The project’s test suite with the prepared test structure.

Blank project dialog


You can also create new projects with the blank project dialog. Project types other than test suite projects must be created with this dialog.

To do so:

  1. In the projects view of an open solution, right-click the solution.

  2. Click Add > Blank project…

The project creation dialog will open.

  1. Name the project and, if you want to, change the location the project is saved to and the programming language.

  2. Select a project type (explained further below).

  3. Click Create.

Project types


There are 5 different project types you can create in Ranorex Studio.
