|Installation tester: test first - go!||Christian Ecker home|
Installation Tester tests Software on being installed completely. After testing Installation Tester opens dialogs, starts Software and/or opens web pages.
Which purpose is Installation Tester for?
Installation tester is for auto starting software, f.e. on CDs: If the basics for the software aren't given, Installation Tester starts Download web pages to give the user the possibility to install necessary components. If everything is OK, Installation Tester opens the software. But there are several other ideas, how to use Installation Tester.
What are the principles of Installation Tester?
Installation Tester searches in the windows registry for special
keys and values. If file system pathes are stored in the registry
value, Installation Tester looks for the specified files and folders.
If other values are stored, Installation Tester compares them to
specified values. Installation Tester uses an INI file to get all
the keys, values and operators to do the searching and comparing.
This INI file will be changed individually.
