Description

Executable file

Instructs UFT to record and run on the specified executable file.

Include descendant processes

Instructs UFT to record and run on processes created by the specified application during the record and run session. For example, a process that is used only as a launcher may create another process that actually provides the application functionality. This descendant process must therefore be included when recording or running components on this application, otherwise the functionality will not be recorded, or the run session will fail.
