Terminal Emulator Configuration Wizard Overview

This wizard guides you through the process of configuring the settings UFT needs to identify your terminal emulator. If your emulator is not in the list of preconfigured settings to select, you can define the way UFT identifies your emulator.

To access
  1. Open UFT with the Terminal Emulator Add-in loaded.

  2. In UFT, select Tools > Options > GUI Testing tab > Terminal Emulator node.

  3. In the Terminal Emulator pane, click Open Wizard.

Note: After you install UFT, the Terminal Emulator Configuration Wizard opens automatically if you selected Run the Terminal Emulator wizard in the Additional Installation Requirements dialog box.

Important information
  • To configure a terminal emulator that supports HLLAPI, make sure that you close any application that is currently using the HLLAPI .dll file before you begin using the wizard. Otherwise, the wizard cannot connect to your terminal emulator.

  • If terminal emulator settings for UFT are already configured on another computer, you can copy an existing configuration file onto your computer, instead of running the wizard. For details, see Copy existing terminal emulator configurations.

  • After you run the wizard, the terminal emulator you selected is set as the default emulator when you open UFT with the Terminal Emulator Add-in loaded.
