Topic: To test a software for Windows on all versions of Windows?

There is a need to test the software for (at least English-speaking) Windows on all versions of Windows, in an ideal with major versions service-pakov. About presence system.dll files, and their versions. Who as it does? One of variants certainly to have it some tens virtual machines. But somehow it is a pity when so much place disappears on the screw, plus should be delivered still all of them at first, and all for the sake of one start for 5 minutes of times in 3 months. Tried to adjust for this purpose Amazon AWS (very successfully I use for testing of the version for linux - on each of accessible ). On Amazon AWS ten thousand images . Machines (truth likely the most part from this it linux) which can be torn one . But here Windows any there strange, at login in Windows on AWS the empty desktop on which the explorer is not launched is received and it is not clear how to start other applications. Questions: 1) how all the same to test  programs on amazon aws? 2) what else methods  cloudy virtual machines are, which can be involved for testing?

Hello, vladrsdn, you wrote: V> There is a need to test the software for (at least English-speaking) Windows on all versions of Windows, in an ideal with major versions service-pakov. About presence system.dll files, and their versions. A software so versionno-dependent? It not to overcome in any way? V> who as it does? I in the core test kernel drivers which on determination are dependent on versions, but the seven and one of the last tens more often suffices me. That worked correctly both on that, and on other, but did not work in the eights - a rarity. V> 2) what else methods  cloudy virtual machines are, which can be involved for testing? I suspect that with Windows it not so is simple, as with  - licenses. If to search, at most MS, but I about such services did not hear.
