Installation Considerations

Applies to TestExecute 14.72, last modified on January 12, 2021

Before you install TestExecute, make sure that the following requirements are met:

  • The computer where you are going to install TestExecute meets the hardware and software requirements described in System Requirements.

  • Your user account has the necessary permissions described in User Permissions.

  • TestExecute is installed in the “all users” mode. That is, after installation it will be available to all the users on your computer, not only to the user who installed it.

TestExecute 14 can be successfully installed and used on a computer where TestExecute 11 or earlier is installed, and the installation program does not upgrade existing installations of earlier TestExecute versions to TestExecute 14. If you have a previous version of TestExecute installed, consider whether you want to upgrade it to TestExecute 14 or install TestExecute 14 side-by-side:

  • If you want to upgrade to TestExecute 14 from an earlier version, you need to uninstall the old version first. See Uninstalling TestExecute.

  • If you want to install TestExecute 14 side-by-side with a previous version, no additional preparations are required.

Test projects created in TestComplete 11 and 10 will work with TestExecute 14 with little or no changes. Tests created in TestComplete 9 or earlier may need additional migration operations performed (see Migrating Projects Created in Earlier Versions to TestComplete 14 in TestComplete documentation). However, test projects created or modified in TestComplete 14 are incompatible with earlier versions of TestExecute.

User Permissions

You must have administrator permissions to install, change, repair or uninstall TestExecute. You must be logged on as Administrator or belong to the Administrators group on the computer.

If you install TestExecute from a network share, you must use a domain account that has the read and execute permissions on that share.

Preparing for Testing Android Applications

To run Android tests with TestExecute, you need to install Java Runtime Environment and the Android SDK on the TestExecute computer.

TestExecute’s installation wizard asks you to specify the path to the Android SDK and Java runtime modules. We recommend that you install them before installing TestExecute.
