UFT License expired on new UFT install but running on previous installs.
Question ID: 107605

I installed UFT 12.01 and the UFT 12.02 patch on several test registers in labs 5 or 6 weeks ago. On one register I started getting a message that the UFT license had on nn days remaining. At the same time our license thru Orasi is up for renewal and thought this message was related to our renewal, even though I was not getting this message on other registers with UFT installed. All UFT registers are pointed to the same QTP License server. When I started the particular register that was giving me the previous warning message I now get a "This machine does not have a valid UFT license …" message. I tried repointing the register to our QTP License server but that does not help. Did I install a "temporary license" when I first installed UFT? Is there a way to reconfigure the UFT license on this register?

There are a couple of reasons this might be happening.

First, make sure you have full admin rights when pointing your affected UFT host machine to the correct license server; it's possible this action isn't ''sticking'' and just reverting to an expired temporary/demo license.

Second, if your company has a mix of UFT and FT concurrent licenses, tt's possible that when you see an error message (only during operation, like when trying to run a test script, etc.) complaining about not having a full UFT license, perhaps the UFT licenses are already used up and the remaining FT licenses are trying to be used for a test that has UFT-specific components (like API testing, etc.).

Try to point to your UFT license server on your affected client machine while having full admin rights, and see if that does the trick.

The note to check the Admin Rights when pointing to the UFT host server did the trick! Thanks for the help.
