Windows 7 offers a built-in Windows Troubleshooting Platform (WTP) that consolidates the typical user’s support and troubleshooting needs into a single consistent user interface. Open Control Panel and search for “troubleshooting”. You’ll see some built in troubleshooting packs designed to help fix common issues such as hardware and sound issues, network and internet connectivity and more. Previously, troubleshooting software and hardware issues was a manual process; however, using WTP you can automate the process of fixing the most common detectable issues that the user might encounter using your software or hardware. The tool, first introduced in Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, is installed as part of Win32 Tools package and can be found on disk in the default folder location of %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\TSPDesigner.
