I developed a windows application.  I need to test the install of the application.  I'm looking to install, then wipe the install and reinstall numerous times.  

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks

Create a snapshot, and then revert the snapshot.

Thanks for the info.  Can this be done on a desktop or just on a server?  What software do I need to set up an VM environment to accomplish this?

It can be done for any virtual machine.

Most virtual hypervisors support this function.
