  • Chrome is not working now with UFT 12.00
Question ID: 105531

I’m trying to get UFT 12.00 to work with Google Chrome. I guess it’s updated in the background and now I can’t use it with UFT at all. It used to work and I don’t think I’ve changed anything about it.

Due to a new security policy implemented in Google Chrome, it no longer allows the UFT installation to install the extension as it did previously. The Chrome extension now needs to be installed manually.

You can find the instructions to install the extension manually on HP's support site, but here is basically what needs to be done:

1. Locate the Agent.crx to install.

For Example: C:Program Files (x86)HPUnified Functional TestingbinChrome

2. Create a copy of the Agent.crx file you see in the above folder and rename the copied file extension to (Keep the copied file in the same folder as the Agent.crx file)

3. Extract to a folder called Agent

4. Verify that the above steps ran correctly

The folder binChromeAgent should now include the following file/directory:

a. Agent [Directory]
b. Manifest.json

5. Start Chrome

6. Get the Extensions listing:

Navigate to the URL: chrome://extensions


Go to Chrome > Tools > Extensions

7. If there is already a QuickTest Professional or Unified Functional Testing Agent extension installed in Chrome, you'll need to remove it and then restart Chrome

8. Make sure the UFT agent is not listed under Extensions in Chrome

9. Enable Developer Mode by checking the Developer Mode selection on the Extensions page

10. Click on the 'Load unpacked extension' button.

11. In the ''Browse For Folder'' dialog, select the folder binChromeAgent (same Agent folder that you created above)

12.Confirm the new extension by clicking the ''Add'' button in the ''Confirm New Extension'' window

13. You should now see the Unified Functional Testing Agent extension in the Chrome Extensions list

14. Restart Chrome

Note: If you end up getting a popup window asking if you want to disable the extension, make sure you cancel out of it. Don't click to disable it or you will not be able to work with UFT and will have to repeat the above steps.
