Unified Functional Testing Patch UFT_00001 Released

With the release of the critical UFT 11.5 Service Pack 11.51 (UFT_00001) Unified Functional Testing now supports Windows 8, IE 10 and more.

I’ve been getting a ton of emails asking when Windows 8 and IE 10 will be supported so I’m happy that this patch is released.

What is new in UFT 11.51

UFT 11.51 Service Pack 1 adds supports for the following

  • Windows 8
  • IE 10
  • Firefox 16 & 17
  • PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52

  • Siebel 8.2.2
  • Rocket BlueZone 6.x terminal emulator
  • Action templates are now supported
  • External Action Properties added
  • Keyword View – Insert Report Step
  • Run Session Stop Key
  • Errors Pane unmapped repository fix
  • Application Area changes

For more detail be sure to read the 11.51 Service Pack Readme after you install. (C:\Program Files\Hp\Unified Functional Testing\help\Readme.htm)

HP also released two other 11.51 patches for UFT:

  • UFTEXA_00001 – UFT Extensibility Accelerator Tool
  • UFTRRV_00001 – UFT Run Results Viewer 11.51

Wow, Joe, you are on top of things! thanks for this information. My UFT tests are running so slowly, 50% more slowly that they ran in QTP 11.0. I have Run mode set to FAST…and saved the test under a new name just in case there is a script conversion process that might help…
I am going to apply this patch and hopefully that will speed things up.
Thank you, Joe, for all you do! Totally appreciate your blogs! ~Laura

    Laura S. » Cool – thanks Laura. Let use know if this patch helps fix your slow QTP run time.

Hi there!

thanks for all the good work!

How do you uninstall this new series of patches?

I can launch UFT but when opening a test I get a System.BadImageFormatException error…

Hi Joe,

Recently discovered your site, and I think it is really great.

On this specific patch, though, you might want to highlight that the support for Windows 8 and IE 10 is “not officially supported” and at “technology preview level”. I didn’t find that out until after I installed the patch. That comment is available only from the patch Readme, which is available only after installing the patch.

Ray C - April 3, 2013

We are are migrating to UFT 11.51 and QC/ALM11 in a Win 8 environment. I am unable to connect to QC/ALM11 via UFT 11.51.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? if so, how did you get around it.

Hi Joe
Does the servicepacks support silent install? E.g. /qb /silent or similar?


    Joe Colantonio - September 2, 2013

    Sorry for my late response – I somehow missed this.Yes silen install of patches is supported:
    QuickTest Professional 9.5 and higher (MSI installer):

    Patches and hotfixes can be installed silently by following the below steps:

    Note: There is no buil-in / supported silent installation provided by HP. The below set of steps are provided “AS IS”.

    Extract Contents:
    QTP 9.5 – QTP 11:
    Open Windows console (from “Start -> Run”, type cmd and press )
    In the Windows console, navigate to the folder where the patch executable file is located.
    Extract the MSP from the executable file by running the command:

    .EXE /E .

    Note: Make sure that exists before running the command.

    UFT 11.5+. Extraction can not be done via command line. Run patch/hotfix, follow on-screen instructions to extract files to selected directory.

    Ensure having required Installation permissions. For more information see Document ID KM183747 – What are the minimum permissions required for QuickTest Professional (QTP), Service Test (ST) and/or Unified Functional Testing (UFT)?

    Run MSP file from extracted contents. Install the patch silently by running: MsiExec /quiet /update \patch.msp
