Install licenses

The Functional Testing License Wizard enables you install, check out, or switch between license types, and requires administrator permissions.

Access the wizard from the Start menu (HPE Software > HPE Unified Functional Testing > Tools > Functional Testing License Wizard) or the file system (C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Unified Functional Testing\bin\HP.UFT.LicenseInstallationWizard.exe)

Exit the wizard when the installation is complete. Restart the LeanFT runtime engine to apply the new license.

You can view current license information from the Help > About Unified Functional Testing screen by clicking the License button.

Additionally, UFT warns you if your license is about to expire. If you have multiple licenses, UFT displays the date of the license closest to expiration.

Install a Seat license (wizard)

  1. In the License Wizard start screen, select Seat license.

  2. In the Seat License installation screen, do one of the following:

    • Click Load License Key File and select your license key .dat file.
    • Paste the license key in the edit field.

      If you don't yet have a license key, expand the How can I get a license key file section.

  3. Verify that the license key is valid, and click Install.

Note:  

  • If you install a time-limited seat license, do not modify the date on your computer. Doing so will block your active seat license and prevent future UFT seat license installations on that computer.

    For questions about this issue, contact your HPE license supplier.

  • If you modify the MAC address or host name of the computer after installing a seat license, you must regenerate and install your seat licenses again.
  • If you install a seat license on a Windows server, the seat license will be consumed by the first user who logs into the Windows server.
