QuickTest Professional 9.2:

QuickTest Professional 9.2 supports Windows Vista 32-bit Edition.

Working with Windows Vista:

* The security settings in Microsoft Windows Vista may prevent you from performing a QuickTest Professional-related installation, such as a patch installation, or connecting to a Quality Center project (either directly or from QuickTest Professional). This can occur when the User Account Control (UAC) option in Windows Vista is set to ON, and you have not yet connected to a Quality Center project (if relevant).
Workaround: To work with Quality Center, temporarily turn off the User Account Control (UAC) option, as follows:
1. Log in to Windows Vista as an administrator.
2. From the Control Panel, choose User Accounts > Change Security Settings.
3. Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box and click OK.
4. Connect to Quality Center as usual. After connecting to Quality Center, you can turn the User Account Control (UAC) option on again. Hereafter, you should be able to connect to Quality Center, as needed.

* Due to a problem opening DCOM permissions on Windows Vista, QuickTest does not run properly on a remote Windows Vista host from Quality Center.
Workaround: Run RmtAgentFix.exe from the bin folder.

* On Windows Vista, QuickTest Professional seat licenses may not work correctly if you are not logged on as an administrator. (Note that concurrent licenses work as usual.)
Workaround: On Windows Vista, install QuickTest Professional and any QuickTest add-ins as an administrator. To do this, right-click setup.exe from the root folder of the QuickTest Professional installation CD and choose Run as administrator.

Then, every time you open QuickTest, open it as an administrator. To do this, right-click the QuickTest Professional icon on your desktop and choose Run as administrator.

* On Windows Vista 32-bit, QuickTest Professional text recognition features (such as text checkpoints and output values, GetVisibleText and GetTextLocation test object methods, and TextUtil.GetText and TextUtil.GetTextLocation reserved object methods) are limited and are not always reliable.
Workaround: On Windows Vista, you can improve text recognition by applying the Classic Windows theme and by setting the mode key in the Windows Registry Editor to 3 – OCR only (described above).

* When using the Mercury Screen Recorder on Windows Vista, setting the Window’s display settings to the Classic Windows theme may improve performance.

* Record and run session performance may be affected adversely when using the Mercury Screen Recorder on a computer running Windows Vista 32-bit or any 64-bit operating system. This is because some capture drivers (such as Blueberry or ASUS’ Enhanced Display Driver) cannot be installed on these operating systems. Note that if you try to install the capture driver from the Screen Recorder Options dialog box while working on one of these operating systems, an error message is displayed.

QuickTest Professional 9.1:
QuickTest Professional 9.1 supports ‘Windows Vista Beta 2-build 5384’.

Working with Windows Vista:

* When installing QuickTest Professional on Windows Vista Beta 2, the QuickTest icon is not installed on your desktop or in the Start menu. (A default icon is installed instead.)
Work-around: Modify the icon manually.

* QuickTest Professional does not support the recording of operations on the Start menu of Windows Vista Beta 2.

* The security settings in Windows Vista Beta 2 may prevent you from connecting to a Quality Center project (either directly or from QuickTest Professional). This can occur when the User Account Control (UAC) option in Windows Vista is set to ON, and you have not yet connected to a Quality Center project.
Work-around: To work with Quality Center, temporarily turn off the User Account Control (UAC) option, as follows:
1. Log in to Windows Vista as an administrator.
2. From the Control Panel, choose User Accounts -> Change Security Settings.
3. Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box and click OK.
4. Connect to Quality Center as usual. After connecting to Quality Center, you can turn the User Account Control (UAC) option on again. Hereafter, you should be able to connect to Quality Center, as needed.

* When working with Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 3, QuickTest Professional may not recognize Web objects, even though the Web Add-in is installed and loaded.
Work-around: In Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 3, choose Tools -> Internet Options. In the Security tab, clear the Enable Protected Mode check box and click OK.

* Due to a problem opening DCOM permissions on Windows Vista Beta 2, QuickTest does not run properly on a remote Windows Vista Beta 2 host from Quality Center.
Work-around: Run RmtAgentFix.exe from the bin folder.
