  • How to I force all UFT settings from one machine to another?
Question ID: 106241

I have two UFT machines. One works perfectly with all of my browsers, recognizing everything. The other has problems with Chrome, but I’ve confirmed my version and patch level supports the browser version I’m using, my "HP Unified Funtional Testing Agent" extension is present and Enabled, I’m opening UFT first and then my browser, and my Record/Run Settings are set to "Record and run test on any open browser."

I must’ve changed some setting somewhere, but can’t for the life of me find it. Is there a way I can "force" the non-working UFT machine’s settings to be exactly like my other working machine?

1. On your WORKING (source) machine: UFT > Tools menu > Options > General > click on the ''Generate Script...'' button. This will generate an automation script for your working UFT instance's global testing options in the form of a .vbs script file. Save this file.
2. On your WORKING (source) machine: Windows Start > Run > regedit. In the Registry Editor, navigate to HKCUSoftwareMercury Interactive and Export the QuickTest Professional registry. Save the .reg file.
3. On your NON-WORKING (target) machine, create BACKUPS of both your UFT global testing options and Registry by using the steps above and saving he files as backup.
4. On your NON-WORKING (target) machine, copy over and run both the .vbs and .reg files from the WORKING (source) machine.

Works! My target machine now has the same settings as my source machine, and I am no longer facing the object recognition issue in Chrome.
