|Software Tools For Testing
|WRQ Express 2000 Suite
||Is a network-based software inventory and metering package
that matches programs against a database of more than 6,000 applications to determine
levels of compliance. It helps you discover completely of noncompliant PCs and
applications, prioritize, and control your desktop Year 2000 problems.
||Uses a very fast scanning engine to locate date-related
problems in popular spreadsheet and database files and unstructured text files. The
package centers its analysis around five levels of severity that you can customized to
focus on your real date issues rather than on phantom problems. It also scans embedded
Visual Basic code in Excel and Access files to uncover buried Y2K issues.
|McAfee 2000 Toolbox
||It focuses only on applications with Y2K compliance
issues. 2000 Toolbox provides concise descriptions of Y2K issues in the noncompliant
application along with workarounds that help you circumvent the problem, such as always
using four-digit years in Excel. The database and spreadsheet analysis features in 2000
Toolbox locate Y2K date problems in Microsoft Excel, Access, and FoxPro, Visual dBASE, and
text files, plus many more.
|IST Year 2000 Packs
||Is designed to run on a network and supports more file
formats than any other package we tested.It comes with CenturyPack modules for analyzing
Microsoft Access, FoxPro, and Excel; :Lotus Approach and 1-2-3; and various languages,
including Visual Basic and C/C++.
|Check 2000 PC
||Scans key areas of PCs, including the BIOS, operating
system, application, and user data files, and reports on date dependencies and advice for
getting around Y2K issues. It provides useful information to asses your Y2K risk, but look
to Check 2000 Client Server for remediation help. The client/server version runs on a
network and automates much of the data collection and scanning in addition to delving into
data files to find date issues. When it does find a date problem in a file, it assists
with remediaion by letting you launch the app, correct the data, field mask, or format,
and continue scanning.
||DateSpy locates date-sensitive values, formats, formulas,
and macros in Excel spreadsheets, Visual Basic modules, and OLE or DDE links.DateSpy
requires that Excel 5.0 or later be installed on the scanning PC, and it generates
detailed reports in Excel format. A report summary page shows the number of workbooks,
sheets, and modules found using your search criteria. The report's detail area shows what
values were found in which moduels, the cell locations, and the formats and formulas that
were used on the values.
||Finds Y2K anomalies in your important data
- Identifies, prioritizes, and reports on two-digit date calculation anomalies in
spreadsheet cells and formulas, database fields and forms, and text.
- Scans Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, Access, dBase, Paradox, FoxPro, and Clipper; supports all
other file types via an unstructured file analysis engine.
- Parses embedded Visual Basic and macros in Excel spreadsheets.
- Audits your software applications for year 2000 compliance and tests them against a
database of known year 2000 problems
Tests system BIOS and clocks
- Tests your system BIOS, real-time clock, and system clock via a boot floppy that
prevents the inadvertent destruction of data and program configurations during testing.
- Fixes any BIOS/clock problems which can be fixed by software, and tells you if you need
to replace the BIOS.
||BloodHound diagnostic software provides the user with an
easy, fast, and accurate means of identifying the amount and location of problem code
lines in a number of high-level programming languages C, Fortran Assembly, Pascal, and
||This software is very robust and can be used to analyze
source code written in any high level programming language, on any platform and flags
lines that potentially contain Year 2000 problems. The reports can then be used to isolate
the critical Year 2000 problems in the application.
