Hi Salman,

About A/B testing methodologies, please read this document in details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A/B_testing#A.2FB_testing_tools_comparison

The document introduced A/B testing in details and what tools can be used to do A/B testing.The following documents:http://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/how-to-run-an-ab-test-ht and http://blog.bufferapp.com/how-buffer-ab-tests also teach us how to use A/B testing.

As for how to test C/C++ program using A/B testing, I am not sure about your program and what you want to test for the C/C++ program, so I can't give you some solutions, but you should get some ideas after you reading those documents.

In addition, for testing C/C++ program, you can use Visual Studio Unit test, for example you can test whether the C++ function has logic error using VS unit test. Please see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh598953.aspx

Best regards,

A/B test is a way to measure two versions of something to see which is more successful.

But how could I measure two different versions of my program using A/B test.

Hi Salman,

Your question about A/B test is out of support range of Test Tools in Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 forum which discusses Visual Studio test issues. I don’t have an experience with A/B testing. I only can provide you some information from online. As for how to make A/B test against your program, you need learn A/B test methodologies and do it yourself.

Best regards,
