AVELife TestGold Studio - Frequently Asked Questions

Here we answer the most important and frequently asked questions on purchase, use and improvement of AVELife TestGold Studio. You can use this information for writing of your own reviews and articles about the software.

Question: Why did you come to promotion of the software by principle "Studio and Agent"?

Answer: We listened to your suggestions: "We haven't yet decided how many copies of the software we will buy, as we don't allocate separate computers for testing. Purchase of the software for installing it on all computers of the company (for testing only) is irrational..."; "We liked your program, we've been waiting for something like that for a long time... But we have out-of-date computers. If you would offer additional program for testing with saving of the result on a network server where we would install your main program – we could allocate one modern computer for this purpose immediately...". Now you pay for AVELife TestGold Studio only (all functions, including test development and monitoring scores) and can use AVELife TestGold Agent (special light-weight program for testing, capable to work quickly enough even on out-of-date computers) completely for free. All-around automation of testing task (including test development and monitoring scores) starts from 399$ only.

Question: Can TestGold work in the network?

Answer: Yes, TestGold can be used both on network and local computers. To provide network interaction, configure the software for use of common server database from all workstations. It is described in details in topic "Getting Started - How to Organize work in the Network") of user guide.

Question: I have downloaded trial version of the program but for some reason it stopped working in a two weeks. Why?

Answer: Trial version works within 14 days, it is designed for you to evaluate its functionality, reliability, attractiveness and user friendliness, then you can buy it and continue its usage. When you purchase AVELife TestGold Studio, you get Activation Key to activate full without time-limit registered version, 1-year free technical support by E-Mail and minor updates (3.x) completely for free with further upgrade for version 4 with great discount, etc. See: Ordering Information.

Question: I tried to run test session by one of the tests earlier registered in the test list, but I receive the message that the file is not found.

Answer: Even after registration in the test list of TestGold test is stored in a separate file. It can be modified, removed and renamed. This message should be understood in a literal sense and the file, specified at registration, was recently removed or renamed. Also it can be a consequence of temporary inaccessibility of the network computer where the used test is stored.

Question: Reporting is failed with error message at processing of expression "Variable X is undefined".

Answer: This message should be understood in a literal sense: report template you use contains fields inappropriate to the current mode of TestGold. 16 report templates, delivered with the software, can be divided into 5 groups by appropriate mode of application: by users, tests, testing results, user actions, access accounts. Each group of report templates has its own fields; you can exclude unused fields and change report appearance, but not the names of the fields. For example, at user list reporting the report generator expects the fields of last name and first name of the user in the report template, but not test name or grade. This should be considered both at creating of your own templates and using of templates delivered with the software (they have special prefix of file name, for example, "Users - ..." or "Tests - ..." in accordance with appropriate mode of application).

Question: We used other program for testing and we have tests created in the old program. Can we continue to use them in your program?

Answer: For direct use of the tests created in other program we need to have description of the format of test file (you can apply for this information to the developer of your old program) and realize function of its reading. It would be better to convert your tests into our format. If you have some tests, you can make it manually, simply copying text of questions, answers and outcomes from your old program. If you have stored up a large bank of tests, we can consider an opportunity of development of special custom-made converter. This service is paid, but its cost won't be very high taking into account that this converter can be useful to other users.

Question: We have many tests in MS Word and we would like to use them in your program.

Answer: Certainly, you can copy text of questions, answers and outcomes from text editor. If you have stored up a large bank of tests, it's better to use built-in converter for automation of the process (you need to place some special tags only).
