Installation Tester

Brief introduction to Installation testing

Installation testing is often the most under tested area in testing. This type of testing is performed to ensure that all Installed features and options function properly. It is also performed to verify that all necessary components of the application are, indeed, installed. The testing process may involve full, partial or upgrades install/uninstall processes.

If your installation is successful on the new system then customer will be definitely happy but what if things are completely opposite. If installation fails then our program not only won't work on that system but also can leave user's system badly damaged. User might require reinstalling the full operating system. So installation testing is very important.
