    Read the license agreement and select I accept the terms in the License Agreement.

  6. Click Next. The Custom Setup screen opens. This screen displays the location in which the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK will be installed.

    Note: If you install the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK on a computer on which UFT is installed, the UFT installation folder is selected by default.

    Click Browse to select a different location, as needed.

    All of the features displayed in the Custom Setup screen are installed automatically during the setup. Click Disk Usage to display your currently used and available disk space, as well as the amount of disk space required for the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK files and folders.

    The Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in is installed on Eclipse according to the location you specify.

    Note: You can install the Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in on additional Eclipse installations after you finish the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK installation process. To do this, browse to the <UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK installation folder>\eclipse folder, and run deploysdkplugins.exe. Enter an Eclipse installation folder in the dialog box that opens, and click OK.

    If you do not plan to use this plug-in, click Cancel and proceed to the next step. Otherwise, click Browse, navigate to the Eclipse installation folder, and select the root eclipse folder. Click OK. Then click OK to accept the Eclipse installation location.
