It’s similar to add-ins in QuickTest professional, you need to choose modules which you need to use. If you have to automate tests for applications that run on the Windows desktop, you need Desktop module. For web pages you will need Web module and if you have to automate Android applications, then you will need Mobile module. While Installing TestComplete10 you will get options to select this module.
If you select Mobile module and if you want android support then you will need to mention the Android SDK path. You can download the SDK if you don’t have it already.
