Customize LeanFT runtime engine settings

The LeanFT runtime engine is used for the Object Identification Center (OIC) and Application Model editor, and when running LeanFT tests.

The LeanFT icon is displayed in the task bar and consumes a license as long as the engine is active. Hover over the icon to display version information.

Customize the runtime engine

You can configure most of the LeanFT runtime engine settings, such as the technology add-in support to load, the connection port, Mobile Center connection information, and other connection settings in the LeanFT Settings dialog box.

If you are running LeanFT tests on remote computers, you must also set the relevant security connection options. These are set in an XML file as described in Run tests remotely.
