in thread Test Case Generator

Hey,
Thanks for prompt reply! Well, right now I do not have access to the manually tested verified setup files. I will have to first make sure if every feature of the stand alone utility is working fine and matches to the expected outcome as desired by the developer.
I am working with same approach in mind as you said about verifying the output of each setup file. I am stuck with understanding of automated test case creation.
How this happens in commercially available testing tools?
How can I generate umpteen number of test cases for a feature available in the stand alone application?

    There is no fairy magic that you can sprinkle over a program to magically generate test cases. Creating test cases requires a human to write down the input parameters and the expected outcome.

[LanX]: the name is older than orthography and pronouncing standards ... which is normally the case, not many foundations after mid 19th century

[LanX]: famous exception of fixed orthography is "Thron" (throne) which should be written without h but the Kaiser objected in this case :)
