  • Can't install a remote commuter license (UFT 12.02 & Windows Server 2008)
Question ID: 106830

We have an instance were we are attempting to do some disaster recovery testing and need to install UFT on a system that will allow multiple user sessions to run tests against one of our applications in the test environment. We would need to have commuter licenses checked out for each of the test machines, but have been unable to do so. Please help!

A commuter license is a form of seat license. By design, the Sentinel licensing mechanism (UFT/QTP v12.0x and below) does not allow seat (and therefore commuter) licenses to be installed on Windows Server operating systems (due to their ability to run the RDP role). To install a commuter license, the target machine must not have a Windows Server operating system.

Okay, thanks. I installed on a commuter license Windows 7 target machine instead, and it worked.
