Install UFT Mobile

You can install the UFT Mobile server on either a Linux or Windows machine. This section is relevant only for on-premises deployments of UFT Mobile

About the installation process

UFT Mobile 3.4 can be installed as:

  • A full installation where there is no previous installation of UFT Mobile
  • An upgrade on top of an existing installation of UFT Mobile 2.50 or later

    The installer checks what files are already installed, and installs or updates the relevant files. If you are using an earlier version of UFT Mobile, first upgrade to version 2.50.

The server can be installed on either a Linux or Windows machine. For installation instructions, see UFT Mobile - Windows Installation (on-premises) or UFT Mobile- Linux Installation (on-premises).
