TestComplete is comprised of TestComplete Platform, which provides the test IDE with foundational components for automated testing, recording, and integration with third-party tools, and Technology Modules, which extend the platform to enable testing of specific application technologies – Windows Desktop, Web, and Mobile:

TestComplete Modules: Desktop, Web, Mobile
Note: Here the term module is used to refer to a part of the product rather than a file or library on a disk.

The TestComplete Platform includes TestComplete IDE and testing technologies that are applicable to any application type. It supports black-box and image-based testing of Windows applications. In other words, using it you can create (record) and run tests that send keystrokes, clicks (with coordinates) and other mouse events to application windows and controls.

The Desktop, Web and Mobile modules give your tests access to internal objects, methods and properties of appropriate tested applications and provide specific support for application windows and controls. In other words, they let you create powerful and flexible tests.

Depending on your tested applications and test scenarios, you will need TestComplete Platform and one or more modules to cover the related application technologies.

When you install TestComplete, TestComplete Platform and all the available modules are installed automatically. Please note that to use a specific TestComplete module, you must have a license for it.
