We want to test the installation process for a product. Because the installation process causes reboots on the system under test I don't think we can run QTP tests directly on that system.
I had an idea to use QTP v11 to open a VMWare Console window, and then drive the product/system under test through that VMWare Console window. The console window would remain open through reboots of the underlying VM. I intend to experiment with it myself, but wondered if anybody else had tried something like this.
Alternate suggestions are also welcome.
