Several prerequisites for working with UFT One must be installed and configured after UFT One is installed. In addition, to take advantage of UFT One debugging and remote access features, certain Internet Explorer and DCOM settings need to be configured.
The Additional Installation Requirements screen displays any prerequisite software that must be installed or configured to work with UFT One, according to the options selected when UFT One is installed or the installation is modified.
The Additional Installation Requirements utility enables you to configure the required settings automatically, and to run the License Installation Wizard and Microsoft Debugger installation during the UFT One installation.
Select an option name in the Additional Installation Requirements dialog box to display a description of the feature.
Select the check box of one or more required options and click Run.
You can run the Additional Installation Requirements utility at any time by choosing Start > All Programs > Micro Focus > Micro Focus UFT One > Tools > Additional Installation Requirements or the <UFT One installation folder>/bin/UFTInstallReqs.exe program. In addition to the options to configure Internet Explorer and DCOM settings, and to run the License Wizard, the dialog box displays any prerequisite software that is still required to be installed to work with UFT One.
Note: For details on accessing UFT One and UFT One tools and files in Windows 8.X or higher and Windows Server 2012, see Accessing UFT One in Windows 8.X or Higher Operating Systems.
Additional installation requirements listed in the Additional Installation Requirements dialog box can include the following, according to the options selected when UFT One is installed or the installation is modified:
Terminal Emulator Wizard. Provides a wizard that enables you to configure terminal emulator identifying settings. This item is displayed only when the Terminal Emulator (TE) Add-in is installed.
Stingray Wizard. Provides a wizard that enables you configure UFT One to work with your Stingray application. This item is displayed only when the Stingray Add-in is installed.
Note: The Web Services Add-in is supported for backwards compatibility only and is not enabled by default. New tests and components can use Micro Focus's API testing solution for web service testing purposes. To enable the Web Services Add-in for previously created tests, contact Software support.
In addition, the Additional Installation Requirements utility enables you to perform the following:
Configure Internet Explorer settings. Select this check box to automatically configure the Internet Explorer options that enable UFT One to use the Microsoft Script Debugger application during test runs.
You can configure these options manually before running UFT One. In Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Then select Disable script debugging and Enable third-party browser extensions.
Configure DCOM settings for ALM Integration. Select this check box to automatically change DCOM permissions and security settings and open a firewall port on your UFT One computer. These changes are only required if you want to run UFT One tests remotely from ALM, and are running UFT One on Windows 7. If you need to set these options manually, see the topic on Modifying DCOM Permissions Manually to Enable Remote Execution in the UFT One Installation Guide. You can also automatically configure DCOM later by running the Additional Installation Requirements tool (Start > All Programs > Micro Focus > Micro Focus UFT One > Tools > Additional Installation Requirements) or running the Remote Agent (<UFT One installation folder>\bin\UFTRemoteAgent.exe).
Configure DCOM settings for Automation Scripts. Select this check box to automatically change DCOM permissions and security settings to enable another computer to remotely control UFT One using automation scripts.
Caution: Selecting this option enables remote users to control UFT One on this machine, exposing the UFT One computer to security risks. Make sure the UFT One machine does not contain or provide access to sensitive information.
For information on how to configure this option manually, see the topic on Modifying DCOM Permissions Manually to Enable Remote Execution in the UFT One Installation Guide.
Run License Installation Wizard. Select this check box to run the Functional Testing License Wizard. If you want to run UFT One using the demo license for up to 30 days, do not select this check box.
Note: This option is not automatically selected when upgrading from QuickTest Professional version 9.5 or later because license data is retained. If you did not install a license before the upgrade, select this check box to run the Functional Testing License Wizard.
