If you have a license for the TestComplete Desktop module, you can test generic Windows applications (.NET, WPF, Delphi, C++ and so on) as well as Java, ClickOnce and out-of-browser AIR applications. For the desktop applications added to the Tested Applications collection of your project, you can specify launch parameters that will be used when you run your tested applications from tests or from the TestComplete IDE.
In addition, TestComplete provides various run modes for generic Windows applications under test. The run modes specify the way to launch your application and provide additional reporting functionality.
The topics of this section provide information on the launch parameters available for different types of tested applications and on how you can set the parameters and run modes.
