# Getting Started¶

Before using Alyvix, you’ll first need to take a minute to install it.

To follow along with the examples in this section on your own system, you’ll need to open the Windows Command Prompt (Start > Windows System > Command Prompt) and switch to the directory where you want to keep your test cases, for example:

C:\> cd C:\Alyvix\testcases


Walking through the steps of the examples below will give you a pretty good idea of how the Alyvix interface works.

1. Example: Open the Windows Start Menu with Alyvix Editor

• Build a simple test case that looks for and clicks on the Windows Start button

• Run the test case, so that Alyvix actually opens the Window Start Menu

2. Example: Open the Start Menu, then the Settings app immediately afterwards

• Build a second test case object, where the second depends on the results of the first

• Add the new step to the workflow from the previous example

• Execute the test cases, checking that they work together

Note

You can find further examples, conceptual descriptions, and use production-centered cases on the Video and Tutorial page.
