Life should NOT be a trip to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an cool and well preserved body, but rather to skid in, chocolate in one hand, beer in the other, body wrecked, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
Re: Which freeware can do installation testing bet
Jifat...please post in proper way then only anyone will be able to help you...you havn't mentioned that your production of whst type is that web based or windows based..also if you want to go for automation then you should have atleast some criteria before doing automation...like in the current version and in next 1or2 version no major changes in functionality and you have test cases in your hand so that you can select for which test cases you want to automate...also if you want to automate for functionality then there are many functional testing tools and if you want to go for performance and load then there are different tools....now how much your company budget for purchasing the tool that also depends for automation...like this there are lot many other cases and factors which need to be defined in precise manner here before asking such question [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Re: Which freeware can do installation testing better?
There used to be a freeware tool from CNET.com (the old ZDLabs stuff) called InCtrl4 or InCtrl5 (In Control) that would track the files and changes done to a Windows system. You could automate it to an extent for your installation and uninstall testing (remember to do Uninstall also, never know the effects of the nastiness that can left behind).
I don't think you can get it free anymore, have to pay a subscription price to the site to download. Too bad, some of the ZDLabs tools were very very helpful.
