Desktop Applications Testing

Desktop Applications Testing

What we do

Being stable solutions that can be easily sold and distributed, desktop applications are complex systems used to ensure stable access to different database types. By performing desktop applications testing, QATestLab makes sure that the solution works fast and stable to fully satisfy users’ needs.

We verify different aspects of a product to improve its quality by detecting weak points connected with its functionality, usability, security, maintainability, acceptability and compatibility.  But we do not perform bug fixing.

In comparison to web products, desktop ones are more user-friendly and enable the user to customize the interface. They are more responsible and their performance speed is higher.

In order to make sure that desktop applications work in a proper way without any issues and inconveniences, we write and execute the test cases for verifying different aspects of desktop software products.  We do not develop desktop applications, we are engaged only testing activities.

How we test

Desktop Application Testing scheme

Also, we check the system functionality with multiple user accounts paying special attention to the distribution of rights. By testing desktop solutions on various OSs, their types and versions, we make sure that all users will be able to install, run and use the product properly. Besides, we verify the theme and layout changes caused by different screen resolutions.

We are trying to detect and ensure the full removal of issues that may cause negative user experience and reduce company’s profit.

Bugs we face with:

  • Additional features / software installed together with user’s permission
  • Improper shortcut icon and its operation
  • Incorrect procedure of application uninstalling
  • Incompatibility with certain OS types
  • Memory leakage
  • Incorrect error messages
  • Authorization and security issues

Assessment that saves time


Having tested a number of desktop applications, we possess the majority of OS types already installed and ready for testing. This saves the time required for quality assessment and reduces the expenses. Also, we are able to ensure a wide test coverage for compatibility testing.

In order to detect the hardware issues fast and effective, we possess machines with minimum and maximum configurations. By checking application interoperability, we try to discover possible conflicts between the system and third-party software. We already have all means needed for effective testing.
