Enable the Functional Testing Agent Chrome extension
UFT communicates with the Functional Testing Agent Chrome Extension to test Web applications running in Google Chrome. This topic describes how to install and enable the extension in your Chrome browser.
IMPORTANT: If you have a version of the Functional Testing Agent for Google Chrome from UFT version 12.00 or earlier installed, you must manually remove this extension before enabling the new version.
If you have automatic Chrome updates enabled, the Agent installation depends on whether you have an internet connection.

If you're connected to the internet, the Agent is automatically downloaded and installed the first time you open Chrome after installing UFT.
