  • Before launching UFT One for the first time in a script, you must create an application object using one of the following syntax options:

    Dim app as QuickTest.Application
    Set app = new QuickTest.Application


    Set app = CreateObject("QuickTest.Application")

    For more information, see Application object.

  • Most automation statements can be performed only after the LaunchAsUser method has been performed. Before launching the application, you can check whether UFT One is already open (Application.Launched).
