I am starting to set up continuous integration for our project and would like to know if anyone has been able to run codesys (running IDE on command line with no UI) instance inside a VM and/or Docker container ?

it would be ideal to be able to build a repeatable build/runtime windows environment in this way but would like to know if anyone has managed to do it successfully or if only option is to install codesys on a physical machine. At least on issue seems to be how to access license container/dongle in a virtual environment. ( I know we can run for short period without license but needed still for svn add on)

Any information, tips or hints gratefully received.

Kind Regards

CODESYS can easily be installed in a VM (windows or linux based)
I do not have any experience with CODESYS in a Docker but it should be doable!?

Anyway, for hints/tips I can point you to
Forge is continously evolving so please keep an eye out for info on this subject.

The main decision is linux with wine and less functions [1] or windows with less docker experience [2], f.e. from my knowledge you can't run a different windows version in docker [2]. [3] could also be interesting example. I couldn't try the solution, but I think its a good start.
