Issue Details

  • After I created an xml-Report with TestStand, the graphical objects are not displayed correctly when I try to open the file in my browser (see image below).
  • Which software do I need to use to open an xml-Report generated in TestStand?


  • Currently, displaying TestStand XML reports is only supported with Microsoft Internet Explorer. You can find the supported versions in the Supported Microsoft Software section of the TestStand Readme file.
  • When creating an XML report, the report is linked to a .xsl stylesheet that can be configured in the Report Options (see image below). Make sure that the according .xsl spreadsheet file (tr5_horizontal.xsl in the example below) is saved in the directory specified in the XML file. If you do not specify an absolute path the stylesheet with its dependencies need to be saved in the XLM report directory.
