Where to get Unified Functional Testing 11.50

From the HP UFT Site you can grab an eval copy of UFT:

From the HP's Download>Software updates site you can get HP Unified Functional Test 11.5 under the Application Lifecycle Management Center section:

FYI: The file size is 2.64 GB

Things to know before you install UFT 11.5

  • If you are upgrading from either QTP 9.5 and up or Service Test 10.00 and up, the install will automatically uninstall any older version of QTP of ST and replace with UFT. If you have older versions of either produce you must manually uninstall them before installing Unified Function Testing.
  • You need to have admin privileges on the machine you are installing on
  • You need to have a supported version of IE installed. Not sure check out my post on UFT Support Matrix
  • Make sure you have all your license info
  • During the install you are giving an option to install UFT Feature of the Service Test run-time only, make sure you do not select HP Service Test Run Time. The HP Service Test Run time should only be installed when you want to have ST on a machine where ST test can run and do not need to be edited
  • If you plan on using UFT 11.50 with ALM 11.50 your ALM administrator has to install the ALM Integration Enablement Pack on the server for the two to work together.
  • UFT supports the Sentinel RMS License Manager version 8.4.0 as its concurrent license server. Earlier versions of the concurrent license server are not supported.
  • To work with .NET 4.0, .NET 4.0 must be installed before you install UFT
  • If you previously had QuickTest 11.00 installed on your computer and you had installed one of the patches or hotfixes that added support for working with the Google Chrome browser (QPTWEB00088 or another Chrome-related patch or hotfix), then you must delete your user profile in the Chrome browser before you can use UFT to test applications in Chrome.
