Currently we are investigating all possible use cases for this idea.
It would help us a lot if you could comment your project setup and how you are adding Ranorex to it. Thx a lot.

Best regards
Ranorex Product Management

    Well has Hugo said having a NuGet ranorex package would simplify things for us, as our builds process already used them.

    Publishing to a public source is not really important since they could be easily published to a local repository. It's the creation of the packages that is mostly requested here. We could do it, but it would be much more simple for Ranorex to install them to a local folder when installing Ranorex Studio for example.

    When Ranorex is used to implement CodedUI tests in Visual Studio, having Ranorex NuGet packages would simplify things a lot IMHO...

    If you create an official nuget package, please add Ranorex.Controls.dll to the Runtime.

    It does not really help us since the build machines need to build the ranorex solution which requires to have ranorex installed. But ranorex is not installed on our build machines. Hence the request to have it as a nuget package.

    We also use xcopy deployment to execute our tests on our build machines which don't have Ranorex installed. But since Ranorex is not installed on our build machines, we also had to write custom code that changes the references to the ranorex libs in the .csproj to a nuget package that we created ourselves. It would be much simpler if the Ranorex csproj would reference ranorex libs from a nuget package by itself.

    We are using the xcopy deployment. Which means we need Ranorex during build time to deploy it to our binaries. Since we try to avoid adding binaries to our source control system nuget would help us a lot here. So we can get rid of unzip scripts in our build scripts.
