All Dialogs have a cancel and a back button.
Our installer works on WinXP, Win2k, and Win2003.
You must write a Python program with nice comments that will :
1) Determine that preconditions are met (Like Product not installed)
2) Launch the installer to be tested
3) Put relevant Autoit commands into a file
4) Launch Autoit v.3 with file from 3)
5) Determine result of test (pass/fail, and log result)
6) repeat from 1 until all possible executions and endresults of installer has been tried.
7) Print status report of what worked and what didn't.
We have already done some testing of the installer in the current version and have found some problems, make sure you find at least the problems that we already know of.
We will execute your script on our test-machines that include several versions of Windows, as a way to test that the new installer works correct in any environment.
