Install UFT AI Codeless

This is a technology preview, enabling you to experiment with AI Codeless testing.

This topic describes how to download and install UFT AI Codeless.

Prerequisites

Before installing UFT AI Codeless:

  • Install node.js version 8.9.4. This is a prerequisite for UFT Developer. For downloads, see http://nodejs.org/en/download.
  • Install UFT with the UFT Developer feature and a valid UFT license.

    The UFT Developer feature is disabled by default, so you must explicitly include it. If you have a UFT installation without UFT Developer, the UFT AI Codeless installation automatically invokes the UFT installation and adds it. For details, see UFT Installation.

    Tip: When installing UFT Developer, the installation wizard prompts you to select a Developer Configuration: UFT Developer runtime engine only or Full installation. For UFT AI Codeless, it is sufficient to choose UFT Developer runtime engine only.

  • Make sure that your machine has Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable.
  • Make sure the following Windows feature is installed, depending on your operating system:

    Operating system Required Windows feature
    Windows OS Microsoft Media Feature Pack
    Windows Server 2008 Desktop Experience
    Other Windows Server OS Microsoft Media Foundation
  • Make sure that you have access to mobile devices in UFT Mobile. For details, see the UFT Mobile Help Center.
