Enable the Edge Agent for UFT on Microsoft Edge Legacy

UFT One communicates with Microsoft Edge Legacy via the Microsoft WebDriver to test Web applications running in Edge Legacy browsers. However, you must ensure that the Microsoft WebDriver is present in the UFT One installation folder.

Note: Microsoft has replaced their HTML-based Edge browser with a Chromium-based Edge browser. If you are using a Microsoft Edge version later than 18.18362, see Enable the Micro Focus UFT Agent extension on Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based). For supported versions of Microsoft Edge Legacy, see the UFT One Support Matrix.

To Enable the Edge Agent for UFT on Microsoft Edge Legacy

  1. Prerequisite: The download and copy steps below may require Administrator permissions.

  2. Open the Microsoft WebDriver page. Follow Microsoft's instructions to download or install the correct version of the Microsoft WebDriver for your Microsoft Edge version.

    Note: We recommend updating the WebDriver version after performing Windows 10 updates, as specific WebDriver versions are required for each Edge version.

  3. Copy the downloaded or installed MicrosoftWebDriver.exe file to the <UFT One installation folder>\bin directory.

    Tip: If the installed WebDriver file's location is not immediately obvious, consult Microsoft's documentation. For example, the file may be located in your System folder, under C:\Windows\SystemWOW64 or C:\Windows\System32.

  4. Start the Edge Agent for UFT from one of the following:

    • UFT One version 2021 R1 and earlier: The desktop shortcut

    • Start -> All apps -> Micro Focus -> Edge Agent for UFT

    • In the Record and Run Settings dialog box, select Edge as the Browser type.

    Note: UFT One cannot spy, record, or run tests on an Edge browser window opened before UFT One.
