Install UFT One from the Package for the Web Bundle

This topic explains how to install UFT One from the lighter UFT One installation package. Before running this process, make sure you review the instructions in Before you install.

Overview

The Package for the Web Bundle is a self-extracting installation package, which contains an MSI installation program.

Installing this version of UFT One includes the following steps: 

  1. Extract the installation package.

  2. Run the MSI installation program to install UFT One.

You can run these steps together automatically, or you can perform them separately.

This package includes the UFT One prerequisites, but does not install them automatically. If you need to install any prerequisites, run their installation programs after you extract the installation package and before you run the MSI installation.

The sections below describe running this installation using a UI wizard or a command-line interface.

For details on other UFT One installation packages, see Installation packages.

Caution: Make sure that the installation files are extracted to an empty folder, at a location whose path does not exceed 80 characters.

Windows is limited to 260 characters in these files. The installation will fail if the file paths of the individual installation files are longer. In such cases, move the extracted installation files to a location with a shorter path.

Install UFT One using an installation wizard

Run the *Setup.exe file you downloaded. This file self-extracts, providing the necessary installation files, and then automatically performs the installation.

If you need to install any of the prerequisites provided in this package: 

  1. Stop the wizard after it completes the file extraction.

  2. Install all missing prerequisites by running the setup.exe file included in the extracted files.

    Alternatively, install specific prerequisites manually using the executable files available in the prerequisites folder included in the extracted files.

  3. Run the .msi file included in the extracted files to performs the UFT One installation.

For details on the selections and configuration details you can customize during the installation, see Install UFT One with the install wizard.

Install UFT One using a command line interface

When using a command line to run the *Setup.exe file you downloaded, you can control various aspects of the installation process:

  • You can choose whether to install silently or to display a user interface.

  • You can specify whether to extract the installation package and automatically run the MSI program, or to stop after the extraction.

    Stopping the process after the file extraction enables you to:

    • Install prerequisites before running the installation.

    • Specify command line options for the MSI run, instructing it to run silently, or configuring features, add-ins, and options to customize the installation.

Use the following commands to install UFT One:

UFT_One_<version>_Setup.exe -InstallPath="c:\<path>"

Extracts the installation package to a specific target folder instead of the default.

UFT_One_<version>_Setup.exe -! <parameter list>

Once the extraction is complete, you can install prerequisites, as described in Silent commands for installing UFT One prerequisites.

Extract the package to the default location (c:\temp), but do not start the UFT One installation:

UFT_One_2021_Setup.exe -y -ExecuteFile=""

Extract the package to the specified location (c:\UFTinstall) in silent mode, but do not start the UFT One installation:

UFT_One_2021_Setup.exe -y -gm2 -InstallPath="c:\UFTinstall" -ExecuteFile=""
