AppTimer is a portable application for Windows that can check for the startup time for any executable file. This is a tiny tool by which you can benchmark exe file by executing for a pre-determined and save the result as text file. You can select how many time you want to test the file’s startup time, delay between two execution, can also select Window detection mode and close method. If you want to compare between two software then this real small (64KB) tool can help you a lot. Also as a portable software, this can work you unnoticed. Follow to read more.
Now let’s have a look over how to test exe file with this. Run AppTimer by double clicking on it. Then on the Application field, browse and locate the app you want to test. If you want to pass any command line argument over the executable file, write it on Cmd Line. Then select a location and file name for the log file. Then from the Execution, use any number. This will determine how many time the app will be launched for testing. Right by the side of it, you can select time to delay (in milliseconds) between two execution. Now select one or more or none from Window Detection Method and do the same with Window Close Method. That’s just make the test under different condition. Not very important. At last, click on Run App to start testing.
After the testing finishes, you will have your log file (remember where you saved it?). Just open the txt file and you will see results in milliseconds.
