Install AI Codeless Testing

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

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


Before installing AI Codeless Testing, make sure your machine has the following installed:

  • A Windows 64-bit operating system

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable.

  • The required Windows feature, depending on your Windows operating system:

    For the most up-to-date instructions on enabling Windows features, see the Microsoft documentation.

  • Node.js version 12.18.3. This is a prerequisite for UFT Developer. For downloads, see

  • One of the following Micro Focus functional testing products:

    • UFT Developer with a valid license.

    • UFT One with a valid UFT One license and with the AI Features and UFT Developer features installed.

      The UFT Developer feature is excluded by default from the UFT One installation, so you must explicitly include it. If you have a UFT One installation without UFT Developer, the AI Codeless Testing installation automatically invokes the UFT One installation and adds it. For details, see UFT One 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 AI Codeless Testing, it is sufficient to choose UFT Developer runtime engine only.

For mobile testing, make sure that you have access to mobile devices in UFT Mobile. For details, see the UFT Mobile Help Center.
