Has anyone used the product TestComplete?

What are your thoughts?  Can you setup individual unit tests somewhat similar to a NUnit/JUnit/CppUnit?

We have a large-scale Win32/MFC application, and we'd like to start incoporating some automated regression tests to keep everything in check. Any insight on this product or similar products would be greatly appreciated.

I have, it is pretty good.  It does the running of test pretty well automating the ui with a reasonable amount of polish.

I haven't had a chance to set it up as a set of tests thus far, I have been using it for another purpose right now.

I would advise the use of it's evaluation period, it is a reasonably solid gui automater.

For JUnit see Jtest
For nUnit see .TEST

Yes -  we used an earlier avatar (AQTest I think it was called at the time) to automate the UI testing af a large simulation system.

It was very succesful and saved our testing peoples sanity, or at least partly restored it.

The tough part was re-writing the tests when the UI changed, though I  guess this is a problem for any UI testing tool.

I've built a framework/architecture for WinRunner that minimizes code updates when the GUI changes. This has been tested and is part of our current production QA process. I would like to make it a bit more agnostic though so that it may work with other vendor's tools.
I've been meaning to take a look at TestComplete but haven't had the time... Sounds compelling if it does what they claim at that price point!
