Unified Functional Testing License ErrorOpen in a New Window

I am using a trial version of the Unified Functional Testing product in order to evaluate it.

This morning it was running fine and reported I had 34 days left on the trail. Curiously, when I log into my account on HPE (where I downloaded the trail), it says I have 25 days remaining in the trail period.

Later in the afternoon, I started the HPE UTF product and recieved the following error message:

The title bar of the popup window reads "Unified Functional Testing"

The body of the message reads:

"This machine does not have a valid Unified Functional Testing license. For more details, please refer to the Unified Functional Testing Installation Guide. You must install a valid license and then restart Unified Funciotnal Testing."

I created a support ticket, but the support resource told me that support for the evaluation software is limited to assistance on these forums.

I did a bit of research one line and tried the suggested remedies:

1) Ensure the registry entry key in a particular path has the proper permissions (it does)

2) Ensure the UTF path has the proper access permissions (it does)

3) Ensure the date and time on the PC hasn't been changed (it hasn't)

4) Uninstall and reinstall the software (didn't help)

5) Reboot the PC (didn't help)

I asked support to please issue me another license, minus the days I've used.

Not sure what else to do here since I can't complete my evaluation of the product at this point.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there a resolution?

Thanks in advance.




Test execution on ASP.NET app way too slowOpen in a New Window


First time I've work with an old ASP.NET application.
The UFT 12.53 script is working fine (no errors) but the execution time is so slow.
Setting a value on a WebEdit or clicking on a WebButton or selecting an item from a WebList takes like more than a minute.
When you do the "Highlight in Application", the target object is identified right away.
The Page and the Frame where the objects are located have been set to have the Property Smart Identification = False. (setting it to True didn't make a difference)

Any suggestions to make the execution go faster?

Thank you.

UFT 14 - Test Combinations Generator BugOpen in a New Window

There is a spelling mistake in a pop up message which appears as soon as  you click on Test Combinations Generator button at toolbar for GUI test. This pop up occurs if you have not defined parameters for the test for which you want to use Test combination generator.

"The TestTCG does not have any parameters, therefore the Test Configuration Generator cannot generate a test confirguration.

Add parameters to the Global tab in the Data pane and try again."



Alternatives to VBScript for UI automation with UFTOpen in a New Window

Hi, I am new here and new to HP UFT ecosystem. I have to use a custom framework which uses Vbscript and UFT to do UI automation. Is there any way to do UI automation by using any other language (python, js, java etc) instead of VBscript ?

PS -

I ask this because Vbscript is a dying language and is used mostly in excel. There are hardly and jobs that where Vbscript is the main requirement. It is hard to attract great software developers/QA to your company if you use Vbscript. Why would someone want to commit career suicide by doing only vbscript that is used in legacy applications at big, overbloated corporations ?

I'm recently working on automate a application named "MDTerm", The mdterm system turns a normal PC into a Stratus workstation. Using mdterm you can access the Stratus more conveniently and productively than you can with a normal dumb terminal.

I'm confused that which add-in could work for MDTerm? The sreen of  MDterm looks like Terminal Emulator could be a choice, but I could not find suitlable vendor, and there's no HLLAPI shortname setting in MDTerm.

Thanks for any suggestion

Is UFT script got corrupted?Open in a New Window


On of our UFT 12.54 script is running very slow  and eventually hangs in the middle of execuetion. The script even perform scanning operation of the imported execl sheet rows very slow. 

The only workaround we found is to reupload the same script in ALM12.53 but then we have to delete  the existing script before reuploading the script in the same folder in the ALM. This will result in to update all Test Sets in the Test Lab to add the script again.

Please let me know if there is any way we can fix the script without deleting from the ALM.  As of now we have recreated the new Action within the script and restored the prevoirs verions of the script since ALM project is enabled with the version control feature but it didnt help and script still running very slow.

Greatly appreciate for any assistance!
