Installation overview

This guide provides details about how to install UFT One 2021 from the full installation package, or a compressed, lighter installation package.

Installed components

You can downloaded a full UFT One installation package or a lighter one:

  • The lighter installation package provides the UFT One setup program only.

    This package does not install the UFT One installation prerequisites. If you do not have all prerequisites installed before running this installation, follow the instructions in Install a lighter version of UFT One. For a list of prerequisites, see the Support Matrix.

  • The full installation package provides the UFT One setup program, as well as additional setup programs for UFT One components. To install an additional component, select it from the UFT One installation wizard Startup screen.

Note: When downloading the UFT One installation files, these packages are provided in separate downloads. The full package is a *.zip file and the light package is a self-extracting *Setup.exe file.

In either package, installing UFT One provides core UFT One features, the Run Results Viewer, and the following mandatory GUI testing add-ins:

  • Web

  • Standard Windows

  • Mobile

Select additional add-ins during installation, as needed.

Web 2.0 add-ins and extensibility toolkits must be installed separately from the full installation package, after the UFT One installation is complete.
