“Solidify Product Installers & Simplify Product Installation Testing”

Installation Testing
Installation Testing is one of the most important parts of testing activities. Installation is the first interaction of user with our product and it is very important to make sure that user does not have any trouble in installing the software.
It becomes even more critical now as there are different means to distribute the software. Instead of traditional method of distributing software in the physical CD format, software can be installed from internet, from a network location or even it can be pushed to the end user's machine.

The type if installation testing you do, will be affected by lots of factors like

  • What platforms and operating systems you support?
  • How will you distribute the software?

In today’s shrinking product life cycles and software development iterations it is very tedious and futile to do the manual testing for regular builds of the software.
It is difficult to perform the installation testing frequently on all the supported platforms and flavors of the software and this gives a huge requisite for “Automated Installer Testing”.

Fidelis provides an efficient and cost effective solution for the “Automated Installer Testing” through its AITF (Automated Installer Testing Framework).
