Tip: Throughout this Help, the notation <UFT Developer installation>\... is used to indicate the location of various UFT Developer files. However, if you install UFT Developer as a feature of the UFT installation, then the folder you use for the UFT installation is also the <UFT Developer installation> folder. For example, if we specify that a file is located in <UFT Developer installation>\bin and you installed UFT Developer as part of the UFT installation, you will find that UFT Developer file in <UFT installation folder>\bin.
