  • 2. Why is software tested? Software is tested to see if all the functions and features are working correctly. Full testing can identify errors, inaccurate data and any gaps in the software where it doesnt meet the requirements. If they arent working customer service can be contacted online or by the telephone.

  • 19. Again nothing changed besides a few differences from the themes
  • 20. Possible Solutions to resolve software functionality issues and Improvements to process Common issues that occur after software is installed is speed lags and not being compatible. This can is affected by the processor or RAM. It maybe a cause from the processor from being under to much load or it maybe that there isn't enough RAM for the software to run smoothly. Hardware or physical damage could be done to affect the software from having errors and issues. To ensure that there is no damage to the RAM or processor check that the components are connected to the motherboard properly. If not an upgrade will need to be considered in order to get the software functioning.
