    Autotesting 64 bit applications

    QuickTestPro doesn't work on 64-bit *applications* although it works on 32-bit applications on a 64-bit OS.

    Has anyone heard of a functional automated testing tool for 64-bit windows applications?

    Perl works a little bit but not enough. Visual Test works too although it can't see tabs, certain lists or trees. I'm looking for something that works on all the controls in a 64-bit application.

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    I don't understand why QTP won't work. Aren't the gui's identical and the objects the same?

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    Apparently not. We thought everything would "just work" too. In fact, *nothing* worked at all on 64-bit applications.

    When we were evaluating testing systems, our old copy of Visual Test did a better job on 64-bit applications than QTP, although even that failed to recognize certain lists (Syslistview32 class), tabs, and trees.

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    Ian,

    Are you trying to run on Vista? If so (any Vista / QTP users)?

    In Vista, do you have the option to run Classic Windows desktop? I do recall a problem back in the QTP 6.5 marriage with WIN-XP. In order to playback successfully, the QTP platform required a display settings change to Classic Windows desktop. Does HP have a workaround or patch yet?

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    We are now running on Vista. Both VT and QTP work on Vista, 32-bit, although both are quite a bit more touch. QTP 9.2 is supposed to run on Vista without problem but we have not tried this yet.

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    Using bog standard VB or VBScript still works perfectly well on Vista and 64-bit. Try using the WinQI query tool from www.aplsoft.com to view what is accessible for automating.

    Re: Autotesting 64 bit applications

    So, what is a true 64-bit GUI and why can't it be spied by the current testing tools? Are there some new GUI controls used in them which were not there in VC++ and C#.NET that run in Windows XP 32-bit?

    Any links on this topic also will be very useful. I have tried google but not much of success. Or are there any other non-testing forums that I should try this?

    Not sure if this is relevant but we're having major QTP/Vista issues
