At the moment we are busy with setting up a continuous build Jenkins server with CODESYS 3.5. The Jenkins server calls a *.bat batch file to start the win PLC and the command-line command for starting the TestManager. We encounter two challenges at this point.

The first problem is when we start CODESYS Testmanager by Jenkins it will runs as a background process without a gui. This will result in a error, because the TestManager apparently needs a GUI. Is there any possibility like the scripting argument --noiUI to start the TestManager also without a GUI?

The second issue is how to return a exit code which indicate an error encountered during the execution of the TestScript. Now the TestManager returns always zero, even when a error has occurred.

Many thanks in advance,
