Installation is user’s first interaction with an application or product and it is very important to validate that all installed features and options
function properly. Today it is even more critical as there are different means to distribute the software such as physical CD/DVD format, over internet, from a network location, etc and need for multi-platform testing is expanding further.
The traditional method of software distribution is the physical CD/DVD format. Now, software can be installed over internet, from a network location or even it can be pushed to the end user’s machine directly from the cloud.

Quality assurance work that focuses on what customers will need to do to install and set up the new software successfully. It may involve full, partial or upgrades install/uninstall processes and is typically done by a software testing engineer in conjunction with the configuration manager.
Installation testing is specific to distributed software that end-users must install on their computer or mobile device. These could be browser extensions, apps, server software, database applications, or independent software applications. It focuses on what customers need to do in order to successfully install, or uninstall, your application. The process involves full installations, partial installations, installation configuration options, patching processes, and uninstall processes.
If you think about the last application you installed, it likely involved allowing you to choose an installation directory, installation options you could select or deselect, such as if you wanted a shortcut placed on the desktop. In the background, registry changes were also made, and an
uninstallation procedure was put in place. Each of these things are also affected by operating environments and other software already installed on the system. All of these steps are tested during installation testing, and verified in as many end-user configurations as possible.
The goal of installation testing is to make sure the software is installed and working as expected after installation. Sometimes called implementation testing, it’s one of the most important tests of distributed software.
We have a fully equipped lab that comprises all possible browser types and versions, OS and OS versions, add-ons, mobile platforms, and
connection speed combinations. It would be difficult, expensive, and exorbitantly time consuming for a company to set up and perform these kinds of tests on their own. Logix Guru has the tools, technology and all required resource that are typically required for these engagements.
We identify the installation requirements, create Test Plans, execute, log defects and retest as needed.
