This section describes how to install UFT One, starting with prerequisites and downloading the installation files.

Installation prerequisites

Before installing, see Before you install in the overview and also verify the following prerequisites:

Prerequisite Description

For details, see Required access permissions.

Install location

Select the location where you want to install UFT One.

Do not install UFT One on a network drive.

The installation path, and the path to the installation files, must include English characters only.

Computer state

Ensure that your computer does not need to be restarted.

System requirements

GUI testing add-ins Know which add-ins you want to use for GUI testing. We recommend installing only those you expect to use.
API testing

If you plan to run web service testing using WSE security settings, you must have the .NET Framework 3.5, WSE 2.0sp3 package, and WSE 3.0 package installed on your computer.

The .NET 3.5 Framework and WSE packages are not installed with the UFT One installation. If they are not installed on your computer, you can install them by following the instructions below:

  1. Install and activate .NET 3.5 Framework. See the instructions in the MSDN.
  2. Download WSE 2.0 sp3 and WSE 3.0 packages from the Micro Focus Marketplace and install them.

    Note: In Windows 10, Microsoft no longer officially supports WSE.

    For details on installing these prerequisites using the silent installation commands, see Silent commands for installing UFT One prerequisites.

Note: If you use WCF for secure Web Service testing, these prerequisites are not necessary. For details, see Customize security for WCF-type Web services.

Download the installation files

Access the UFT One installation files from the free trial page or by selecting your account on the Software Licenses and Downloads page.

Select the installation package that you want to install. (For details, see Installed components)

  • The UFT One DVD Release provides a *.zip file.

    Manually extract the installation files in this .zip file to locate the Setup.exe file that runs the installation.

  • The lighter, compressed Package For the Web Bundle provides a *Setup.exe file.

    When you run this file, it self-extracts, providing the necessary installation files, and then performs the installation.

    Note: 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.

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 is longer. In such cases, move the extracted installation files to a location with a shorter path.
