    I installed UTF 12 Trial version. When i started the UTF , it says “validating Licence ” and i get a information box saying
    “Sentinel RMS:Oct 24 13:22:22:Process(11184):VLServerHandel, Line:92(0)”
    The information appears continuously and am not able to proceed further. Pls help

  10. Russ

    I have a couple of QA’s that recently installed UFT 12.01. When they restart their PC and while UFT is running, other programs have a delay when opening. Programs such as MS Excel or even a IE browser which has 5-10 second delay. We tested on couple of PC’s. I did not see much a difference in memory usage or CPU usage when opening these programs. Any ideas?

  11. Yogesh

    Hi,

    Hello Ankur,

    Please I didn’t have a solution to this issue.
    When I want to install HP UFT Connection Agent.pkg, I have this error message:
    “HP UFT Connection Agent.pkg ne peut être installé car sa signature numérique n’est pas valide.”
    –Le paquet a été signé avec un certificat révoqué. Il est possible que ce paquet installe un contenu différent de vos attentes. Procurez-vous une nouvelle copie du paquet et essayez de nouveau–

    Thanks,

    • @Ikbal: Here is what the translation reads

      HP UFT Agent.pkg Connection can not be installed because the digital signature is invalid. ”
      -Package Was signed with a revoked certificate. It is possible that it installs a different content to your expectations. Obtain a new copy of the package and try again

  21. Bharath

    Hi Ankur,

    Thanks for the wonderful Installation guide. We recently migrated from QTP 11 to UFT 12, and we are facing some strange issues like UFT will hang at breakpoint or when run error is displayed. I have to kill the UFT process and then open UFT again. Debugging has become very difficult. Any idea why this is occuring ? was my installation not proper ?

    I am using Win7 64bit OS with 8GB Ram

    Thanks

  22. Ikbal

    Hi Ankur,

    Please I want to know if UFT 12 is supported by Mac Os
    I’ve download this last version but it doesn’t work on Mac OS

    Best regards,

    Ikbal

    • @Ikbal: There is a limited support for Mac OS on UFT 12. Please check this post to find out more on Mac OS support.

      • Ikbal

        @Ankur: Yeah, my problem in fact that is I had .exe file when I downloaded UFT12.
        So, this file cannot be installed on Mac OS.

      • @Ikbal: You can’t install UFT on Mac yet. Rather you need to install UFT connection agent which is a service installed on your Apple Mac computer, which enables UFT to communicate with the Safari browser using the WebSockets protocol. You would also need to have UFT agent extension for Safari on your Mac machine. The code will be executed remotely.

  23. adrika

  24. Bhuvan

    Hi,

    Downloaded UFT 12.0 trail version.However could not install on my sysem(OS:Windows XP, Service pack3).Getting message current operating system is not supported to install this software package

    • @Bhuvan: The message is correct. UFT 12 does not support Win XP. Check the UFT vs Windows support matrix for detailed info on support.
      Given that MS themselves have stopped supporting XP, I don’t think HP has any plans to support Win XP in future for the newer versions.

  25. Jasbir

    I tried to look at the video on this page but it gives me the following error:
    [Error]: An error is triggered during the ajax request! Text: error Forbidden

    I have installed the UFT 12 trial software but when I try to run it I get stuck on the Install License alert. When I click on the Cancel button, it just takes me back to the Desktop screen and UFT never opens up.

    Please help.

    • @Jasbir: Have you installed a version of QTP/UFT earlier?

      • Arpit

        I also faced the same issue. Yes, I installed the previous version of UFT earlier but it worked by clicking on the Cancel button and I was able to use it for 30 days.
        Could you please share your inputs.

  26. Rakesh M

    Is there any way we can overcome the License issue while reinstalling the UFT 12.0 trial version

  27. shilpa

    As soon I downloaded from link that u have provided,I got a mail saying the order for QTP is confirmed, along with the sold-to address & electronic delivery site info. What does that mean? I just want to use QTP trial version not buy from HP. Please clarify ASAP.

  28. Bobby

    1. If you are using Windows 7 Operating System, and installed the HP Unified Functional Testing Version 12.0, this is way I got it working.
    a. Right click on the “Flight GUI” in the Start > All Programs > HP Software > HP Unified Functional Testing > Samples > “Flight GUI”
    b. Click on Properties
    c. Click on Compatibility Tab
    d. Under the Compatibility mode option (Tick) the Run this program in compatibility mode for and choose “Windows XP (Service Pack 3)” from the drop down list.
    e. When you open this application, then choose the option yes to run as administrator

    2. Similar follow the same compatibility setup for 2 (flight3a.exe & flight4b.exe) other applications in the below folder (or where ever you have installed this software):
    C:\Program Files\HP\Unified Functional Testing\samples\flight\app

  29. Koti

    Hi Ankur,

    I downloaded and using UFT 12.0. I observed that when a breakpoint is inserted in QTP script or a library file, execution is not holding at the breakpoint. Could you please let me know what else I need to install so that debug works?

    Thanks,
    Koti

  30. Shinde

    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.

    • Olga

      I have the same problem. But if I open flight app as administrator it opens ok.
      But in this case I have to click ok because Windows asks me to allow to make changes on my computer

    • Vinod

      Hi,
      For all those who face the issue like : ““Invalid Attribute/option identifier”.
      while opening the “Flight Application” .., the reason for that error is because of admin privilege..,

      we can sort this problem by following these steps…,

      Right clilck on Flight GUI icon, –> Select Properties –> Click on ‘Compatibility’ tab –. Under ‘Privilege Level’ section –> select the check box ‘Run this program as an administrator’ and click on OK button.,

      And then retry accesing the Flight GUI application.,

      Hope that helps…, Thanks

      Regards
      Vinod

    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.

    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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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

  37. 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.

    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?

      • @vigor: AS Vijay has reported here, looks like UFT 12 will work with your current license of UFT 11.5.

    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,

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

    Hi Ankur,

    It is asking for license.

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