QA Wizard Pro System Requirements

Article ID: 774  |  Last updated: 23 Nov, 2016

QA Wizard Pro system requirements differ based on whether the computer is used to record or run scripts. A computer that meets the minimum requirements for recording scripts can also run scripts.

The following requirements are intended to be used in combination with the hardware requirements for the application you are recording or running scripts against. These requirements do not account for additional applications or processes that may impact QA Wizard Pro's memory and processor usage, or additional hard disk space that may be required for storing scripts, reports, datasheets, and repositories. These requirements apply the most recent QA Wizard Pro release.

Note: To successfully use QA Wizard Pro, you must be a member of the local Administrator group on the computer it is running on. Without this access, you may not be able to successfully record scripts and may be prompted to enter a serial number each time QA Wizard Pro starts. Contact your system administrator for help.

Local application repository size considerations

The disk space used by the local application repository increases as the number of controls captured for an application version increases. CPU and RAM usage, which is proportional to repository size, increases temporarily when the repository is modified during recording. 

The following chart provides system recommendations to achieve optimal recording performance, based on the local repository size.

Repository size CPU RAM
0 - 5 MB 1.0 GHz 512 MB
6 - 25 MB 1.2 GHz 512 MB
26 - 125 MB 1.8 GHz 768 MB
126 - 250 MB 2.4 GHz 1.2 MB
251 - 500 MB 3.0 GHz 2 GB
> 500 MB 3.2 GHz 2 GB

QA Wizard Pro Server system recommendations

The attached PDF file includes system recommendations for running the QA Wizard Pro Server application. These are not minimum requirements, but are the recommended system configuration for optimal global repository performance.

Dashboard requirements

The dashboard lets you monitor playback information in real-time in a supported web browser. It must be hosted on a web server on the same computer as the QA Wizard Pro Server. See QA Wizard Pro Dashboard Supported Web Browsers and Servers.
