Usually, you can use TestComplete normally right from the start. However, depending on the operating system you are working with, the software you are running and the test types you are going to perform, you may need to configure certain settings manually to be able to use TestComplete in full. Otherwise, TestComplete may not be able to access your tested application, record and run tests, and so on. For example, high security settings of the operating system may prevent TestComplete from interacting with other applications unless it has a specific privilege level. You may also need to specify TestComplete as a trusted application for your firewall or antivirus software to avoid conflicts.
