    Hi Ankur,

    I have installed UFT 12.0…When I try to run the sample flight application (Flight GUI) and enter the agent name and password (both as mercury)….Getting following error “Invalid Attribute/option identifier”.

    • @shinde: I hope your install was not corrupt? The sample app is working fine at our end and we have not heard any such issues from others.

  2. KuMAR

    While installing QTP12 I have got an error. Error reading from file:unified functional testing\MSI\GlobalAssemblyCache\HP.ST.EXT.automationAPIhelpers.dll. Verify that file exists and that you can access it. How to solve this error.

    Hi Ankur-

    I am facing an issue with QTP 12.0 and Flights application. When i launch Flights application and go to the main flight reservation window, it gives me an error “Invalid attribute/Option Identifier”. Dropdown menus are blank and there is no flight button.I have checked that I have copy of the database under sample folder etc..
    Please let me know if you have resolution to the issue. There are alot of people affected by this issue. If this cannot be resolved please guide how i can install QTP 11.5 OR 11 on my machine.

    Thanks in Advance.
    Best REGARDS

    • @Jason:
      What’s your OS? There are few kinks with this new version like the various Start > Tools not available under Windows 8. I have raised a request with HP and waiting to hear from them.

      • Aparna

        Hello, I have faced the same issue when I installed UFT 12.00 on Windows OS7. Couldn’t work with Sample Flight Application. I get “Invalid Attribute/Optional Identifier” error when I log-in into the sample application. Has HP given any solution to this? It seems to be widely faced issue by everyone who has installed UFT 12.00

        Is this issue related to some missing DLL or regarding some DLL’s registry?

        • @Aparna: There has been no patch from HP after the release of UFT 12.

          @All: For all those getting same issue, please mention your OS, Service pack of OS installed on your machine, IE version and QTP/UFT version.

          • Swapna

            Hi Ankur, I am getting same error with flight application .
            OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
            IE version: 11.0
            UFT: 12.00 (Installed UFT for first time on my laptop and this is the version I could download).

  5. babu

    system need to format,after trail period got expired in uft or QTP………………
    could you please provide solution regarding without formating the machine……………

    • @Babu: 1) As your organization to get the license keys 2) Request HP to extend the trial or else no solution.

  6. Anitha

    Hi Ankur,

    I have Installed UFT version 12 in my windows 8. I am unable to find test batch runner in my system. Can you guide me how to open test batch runner in windows8.

    Thank you,
    Anitha

    • @Anitha: Looks like this is a common issue with people on UFT 8/8.1. While the help says all tools would be available from the start screen of Win 8 but none of them are available there. I think it will be better if you can raise a bug fix request through your company’s support system to HP.

  7. sathya

    hi ankur
    i have downloaded the latest UFT 12.0/11.5 version in windows 8 .i am unable to find where flight reservation application located.its getting hard to locate in windows 8 version laptop.

    • @Sathya: You are correct. UFT 12 does not show the sample apps in start screen of Windows 8. This seems to be a bug. However as a workaround you can directly open the windows based app from C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Unified Functional Testing\samples\flight\app

  8. Vamsi

    Hi Ankur,

    I installed the UFT 11.5, during the installation, I failed to download the “Script debugger” due to internet Issues. Could you please let me know the way I can download it ?

    • @vamsi: You can go to Start > All Programs > HP Software > HP Unified Functional Testing > Tools > Additional Installation Requirements and install debugger,

      • Vamsi

        Thanks for the Prompt response Ankur. It is working now. Thanks once again.

  24. sadapa

    Hi Ankur,
    Are the upgrades free? WE currently have QTP 10. We would like to evaluate 11.5?
    Just wanted to know if the upgrade to 11.5 is free

    • Ankur Jain

      @Sadapa: No. The major version upgrades are never free.

      • vigor

        We have a UFT 11.53 licensed version with us. Right now we do not have any running support agreement with HP. Can we still upgrade it to UFT 12. Will our 11.5 license would work here?

  25. Amit

    Hi Ankur
    very well written and easy to follow steps. But I got a mail saying the order for QTP is confirmed, along with the sold-to address. What does that mean? I just want to use QTP trial version not buy from HP. Please clarify ASAP.

    • Ankur Jain

      @Amit: That’s how HP processes your download requests. You can ignore that.

    • juhi

      heyy cn you forward the exact link to download qtp and the seenium complete package?

      • Ankur Jain

        @Juhi: QTP and Selenium are two different tools. For QTP, please check the download steps above.

  26. Amit

    I would like to know if we can get the patch to update 11.5 to 11.51.

  30. Pravesh

    Hi Ankur, after installing UFT 11.5, recording Flight GUI , at replay time/run time I am getting error as Not able to find the Agent Name

  31. Sujata Bhattacharya

    Hi Ankur can i install qtp 10 in windows 8??

  32. G

    Hi Ankur,
    I am having this problem with the UFT 11.50: I can play back all my old scripts created with previous versions of QTP but I can record nothing but the sys util actions with the UFT. The Object Spy recognizes objects and adds them to the object repository. I am using Record on any open application option. Even after adding objects to the repository with the Object Spy and then creating script manually, I am unable to play it back.
    Thanks,
    G

  37. Sekar

    Is there any way we can overcome the License issue on overwriting the earlier version and evaluate the UFT 11.5 version?

  38. Vishwas

    Hi Ankur, I really appreciate your efforts for providing the QTP 11.5 details. I am successfully able to download it.

    Thanks,
    Vishwas

  39. Ankesh

    Hi Ankur,

    It is asking for license.

    Rgds,
    Ankesh

    • Ankur Jain

      @Ankesh – If you have already installed a version of QTP earlier and installing UFT 11.5 overwriting that version, UFT will ask for license.

    Thanks again ANKUR for providing useful link and Info…
