HP Quality Center 10 – Patch 31 Released


HP QC 10 latest patch Release

Today HP released Quality Center Patch 31 that fixes a number of known issues.


Patch Name







RedHat Linux


Sun Solaris


What’s been fixed?

  • When importing large project as QCP files the server disconnecting issue has been resolved.
  • You can now see version related info for version controlled Test Lab reports that are created using the Document Generator.
  • Data hiding settings should now work when viewing Tabular formatted reports.
  • Idle BPT test steps should no longer lose their output parameter values
  • After a user ordered tests in Execution Flow of the Test Lab module tab, that test order should now be visible in the execution grid of the Automatic runner
  • Offline execution related executable files were downloaded on connection of QuickTest Professional to QC server for the first time. Now the required files are installed beforehand.
  • In the Test Plan view, the Find option did not find the desired folders when a filter was set on the view. The Find option now finds the expected folders, however in order for such folders to be found using the Find option, at least one test needs to be defined in those folders.
  • A few files were missing from the MSI installation of the previous patch: PerformanceWinHooks.dll
    • VugenTestType.dll
    • dsoframer.ocx
    • ExtensibilityAPI.dll.
    • These files are now included in the MSI installation.
  • Version controlled projects that keep losing pasted design steps parameter values has been resolved
  • Workflow code under Test_MoveTo in Test Plan module was ignored when a test was checked out or checked in. This behavior should now work.
  • The Risk Assessment and Functional Complexity tabs in the Requirement Management module were improperly displayed after repeated resizing of the viewed area.
  • On pasting requirements or importing requirements from libraries, empty fields such as Target Release and Target Cycle were automatically updated with default values instead of keeping them empty as in the source requirements.
  • Activating user actions in the Requirements toolbar failed with an error after activating the requirement traceability option.

The Entity tree will be added to all sub standard reports from type Test instance in order to avoid the need going back and forth between Test Lab and Dashboard module and to select Test Set from the Test Plan tree in the report configuration view.
  • Pin to baseline now takes the baselines requirement test coverage into account. FYI: To enable the set system parameter GET_COVERAGE_FROM_BL_FOR_PINNED_TESTSET set the value to Y.

Hi Joe,
Big fan and thank you for all your posts. Unfortunately we are still using HP QC 10 (we attempted to upgrade last year and ran into many issues), planning to try again soon.
But right now out of nowhere users started getting this error: …qcbin/install/test_tyoe.cab this file didn’t pass signature checking.
Since QC 10 is no longer supported, do you know if there is anything we can do about this? I know changing window’s security setting will make it work but that is not a good option for security reasons.
thank you

    Sorry I have not seen this error before. I know for similar issues I usually try to register the capicom.dll. Open up a command prompt and tyep:

    regsvr32 “C:\Windows\system32\capicom.dll”

    Does this help?
