Disable “Enable Enhanced Protected Mode*” from Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Security node > Enable Enhanced Protected Mode

Disable “Enable Protected Mode”from Tools > Internet Options > Security tab

  • If somebody installed two versions of QTP – one is in 32-bit and other is in 64-bit then UFT opens first in 32-bit rather than 64-bit,when user will start the UFT application.

Works on a system that has never had UFT installed before you install 30-days of demo version. During the demo period,user can contact HP to provide a permanent seat license by giving your machines locking code.
  • Concurrent: It is also called as floating license,needs a concurrent license server to be installed in your office/local network, pick this possibility and enter your licensing servers IP or name.

Once the installation gets over, restart your machine and get the UFT 12.00 from Start -> All Programs -> HP Software -> HP Unified Functional Testing.

    Can I install UFT on Vista SP2 with IE browser?

  • vaishnavi

    I can’t get 11.5 to install. I don’t have and have never had QTP on my system. When I double click the setup.exe file I get a pop up that says No Background Bmp defined in section “General” entry “BGBmp”. Then I click ok and I get a new message No Application Name defined in section “General” entry “App Text”. Then a white box appears. I am guessing this should be the start screen but it never changes from a white box. What am I doing wrong?

  • vaishnavi
