Configuration settings reference

Each configuration has its own set of configuration settings which are applied on each node of the test project. You can change these settings in the Configuration Settings dialog box.

The Configuration Settings provides access to the following settings families:

  • General

  • Build

  • Runtime Analysis

  • Testing

The actual settings available for each node depend on the type of node and the language of the selected Configuration.
