    Note: The UFT Developer installation can install the UFT Developer plugin only on one of the Eclipse/Spring Tool Suite/JBoss Developer Studio IDEs. Accordingly, you can enter only one IDE path for this option.

UFT Developer is installed by default in /Applications/UFTDeveloper

After installation, you can move the installation folder to another location if you need to, in which case, you must define a system variable called LEANFT_HOME that points to the new location.

Tip: If you move the installation to <users>/Applications/UFTDeveloper, you do not need to define the LEANFT_HOME system variable.
