Switching test configurations

Although a project can use multiple configurations, as well as multiple TDPs, there must always be at least one active configuration. You can switch from one configuration to another at any time, except during build activity.

About this task

The active configuration affects compiler and deployment options for each resource in the project.

Note: You can also run a test harness with two different test configurations by creating a test suite. See Creating test suites.


To change the active test configuration:
  1. In the project explorer, right-click the project and click Properties.
  2. Expand C/C++ Build, select Settings, and click Manage Configurations.
    The Manage Configurations window for the project opens.
  3. Select the configuration that you want to use to build and run the test and click Set Active.
  4. Click OK to close the Manage Configurations window.
