Tip: Throughout this Help, the notation <LeanFT installation>\... is used to indicate the location of various LeanFT files. However, if you install LeanFT as a feature of the UFT installation, then the folder you use for the UFT installation is also the <LeanFT installation> folder. For example, if a file is located in <LeanFT installation>\bin, and you installed UFT in the default location, then you would find that LeanFT file in C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Unified Functional Testing\bin
