my sequence does not begin with the setup stage. It starts with the Main section. Is there a way to select to dissabe and enable this property?


There is an option in the menu item Configure, Station Options.. but this is only in interactive mode.

Also check the tracing options in the Station Option...

You could try putting a break point or setting the Break at First Step options to see if its really is missing the setup.

As far as I know, there is no setting in TestStand that will allow you to skip the setup group. Setup is always run before Main. It might be possible that you have tracing enabled and the option "Allow Tracing into Setup/Cleanup" is not checked. You'll find this option in the Execution tab of the Station Options.
