Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on May 21, 2024

Before installing TestExecute

  1. Read the license agreement. By installing TestExecute, you confirm that you agree to the terms and conditions of the license.

  2. Review the Installation Considerations section and make sure your computer meets the hardware and software requirements.

To install TestExecute

  1. If you have TestExecute installed and running, close it.

  2. Close all the applications that may use the same files that TestExecute uses, for example, web browsers, your tested application, Microsoft Visual Studio, and so on.

  3. Double-click the TestExecute installation package in Windows Explorer. The installation wizard will start.

  4. To enable the Intelligent Quality add-on, on the next page, click the link to read a third-party license agreement. If you agree to the license terms, leave the Intelligent Quality Add-on check-box enabled and click Next:

    TestExecute Installation Wizard - Enable Intelligent Quality Add-On

    If you do not agree to the third-party license terms, or if you are not planning to use the add-on, clear the Intelligent Quality Add-on check box and click Next.

    Note: If you do not install the Intelligent Quality add-on when installing TestExecute, you can install it later via the Install Extensions dialog.
  5. On the next page, select the folder to install TestExecute to:

    TestExecute Installation Wizard - Choose Destination Location
    Note: To test Windows Store applications, you must install TestExecute to a subfolder of the Program Files folder (or Program Files (x86) on 64-bit Windows versions). The wizard will warn you when you try to install TestExecute to a different folder.
  6. Click Install to start the installation. Copying the files and configuring the environment typically does not take much time.

    Note: If the specified installation folder contains files, the wizard will overwrite them. It will display a message to warn you about this and to ask for your confirmation to continue.
  7. After the installation completes, click Finish.

Note: If any issues occur during the product installation, the installation program will suggest sending the installation log to our Customer Care team.

After the installation

Activate your TestExecute license. See Activating Licenses.

Note: If TestExecute fails to find an activated license on your computer, it will display a dialog asking you to activate your license. To resolve the most common issues with license activation, see Unable to Activate Your License.
