When faced with a problem, it is often not 100% clear which part of the system is defective. The hardware or the software? No matter how good and reliable the installed software is, it will not work at all or only function poorly without properly functioning hardware. It can also happen that incorrectly saved data is not caused by the software, but by a defective hard drive or RAM. To solve software problems, you need to make sure the hardware is running properly. With toolstar®testWIN and the endurance tests you can carry out these quickly and efficiently and, if necessary, find nor components that could cause problems in the future.

In order to be able to offer your customers a complete all-round service, you also need a tool that RELIABLE and EFFICIENT tests all hardware components in any device type and creates a report for you and the customer. With toolstar®testWIN you can not only find errors that are currently occurring or are present, but sometimes also errors that only appear in the future. A good example is hard drives. It's better to replace your customer's hard drive before they call you with a data recovery request! You set up new systems for your customers every day. To offer them a 100% all-round service , you need toolstar®testWIN ! Integrate your own logo into the freely configurable protocols and adapt them to the wishes of your customers.

Your advantages

toolstar®testWIN is a diagnostic software developed by toolhouse for technicians, support staff, network administrators - simply for anyone who is interested in trouble-free functioning of PCs. Our goal was to develop a product that makes it possible to scan all components of a PC in great detail for errors, with the aim of having to spend as little time as possible on it. The result: toolstar®testWIN, toolhouse's first in-house development. In toolstar®testWIN the experience we have gained over years of collaboration with PC manufacturers, system houses and service companies has been optimally implemented implemented into reality. You receive top-class diagnostic software that is continuously developed and adapted to customer requirements. The program and the manual are available in German, English, Italian and Spanish.

toolstar®testWIN can be used either in the installed Windows (desktop, server, tablet, iPC and much more) or via a WindowsPE/RE be operated self-booting. This means you can decide at any time how you want to test the target device. In a new, fresh WindowsPE environment, or so the customer uses the device every day - i.e. in the installed Windows.

Many errors only occur sporadically, PCs crash at irregular intervals - the result: hours of searching and replacing components. With toolstar®testWIN you can test the individual components using specially programmed stress tests. You determine which components should be tested, for how long or how often. Up to 999 times or up to 999 hours. Various test patterns are preset, and all tests can also be freely selected.

After the tests have been carried out, save a protocol on a USB stick, on the network or via email if you wish. Or save information in a file. Test reports create trust with customers and help you save time. Demonstrably fewer returns and complaints. toolstar®testWIN offers three predefined patterns, and you can also freely configure them with your logo. In addition to the PDF, HTML and text protocols, you will also find JSON and XML as formats for automated further processing in your ticket systems.

Select and save tests. This means you have the right test sample at hand for every case. This allows processes in the workshop, production or refurbishment to be standardized and better organized.

In addition to information and tests for the hardware, toolstar®testWIN also offers detailed information about the installed software and the Windows system properties such as services and event logs. The event log test can be individually configured so that you automatically receive a notification if too many errors or warnings appear in certain areas.

Detailed recording of all system information and diagnostic processes

Document system information and test procedures

All system information such as CPU, mainboard, GPU, memory and much more can either be saved manually or documented automatically in conjunction with an automation script. In addition, the individual test results can also be saved or summarized in the automation.

Define different formats and output targets

All documents can be saved in various formats such as PDF, TXT, HTML, XML or JSON. The last two are specifically intended for automatic processing in other IT systems. All documents can be saved locally in your selected form, sent via e-mail, uploaded to a (S)FTP server, in a Insert the MongoDB database or simply save it to the network.


Areas of application

Every device that leaves your factory should be completely tested and audited and, if possible, completely automated. With toolstar®testWIN you can fully test a PC immediately after installing the operating system, including an automated restart. You receive detailed reports for yourself and attractive test or handover protocols for your customers.

The incoming PC is first tested extensively under load with tests that start automatically and all results are saved and displayed directly. Only then will the qualified technician be deployed for assessment and repair.
The process: Boot the PC with its own operating system or start with WindowsPE - toolstar®testWIN - WALK AWAY - and the Don't touch your PC again until all test results are available!

By using toolstar®testWIN on site at the customer's site with predefined automatic test groups.

Use toolstar®testWIN as an online license conveniently via remote maintenance and test as if you were on site.

Through fully automated processes, you can audit, test and delete all devices in one operation (with the optional toolstar®shredderWIN module) and log the results.

The difference to toolstar®testLX

The program toolstar®testWIN is started by default in an installed Windows, but can also be self-booted via WindowsPE. toolstar®testLX is self-booting by default but can also be started within an installed Linux. Self-booting execution has the advantage of a clear view of the hardware without any user programs that use resources and thus distort the results. However, running it under Windows has the advantage that you may also find errors that only occur in connection with Windows and the user programs. You can also test under Windows with the manufacturer's drivers and can fully test the entire GPU memory and carry out a meaningful GPU computing stress test to put the individual GPU chips under strain.

toolstar®testLX works completely independently of the installed operating system and can be started self-booting on PCs, tablets, servers, IPCs and much more. You don't even need to have a hard drive installed to start the program. This differentiation means that test results can be clearly assigned to the hardware and errors can be identified quickly. If you get a CPU or memory error with toolstar®testLX, then you can be sure that the hardware components or the path to the components (bus, controller, mainboard) are defective. An error in the operating system or the installed software can therefore be ruled out.

Intact hardware is the foundation of properly functioning software.

With toolstar®testWIN you get a test program that can include not only the hardware but also the software in the tests and evaluations. This includes the automated evaluation of the Windows event log for warnings and errors, the reading of license keys and software serial numbers, and the quick and clear display of all services, updates and processes under Windows. In the area of GPU testing, you have the advantage within the installed Windows that the manufacturer's special drivers for the graphics card are already installed and so all functions can be addressed and maximum utilization can be achieved.

System requirements


These system requirements provide a rough guideline on which systems the program can run smoothly. However, toolstar®testWIN is also capable of operating on small embedded systems or mini PCs. The basic requirement is always an installed and running 32- or 64-bit Windows operating system or a specially created bootable version of Windows. PE or Windows RE.
