Install LeanFT license using the License wizard (Windows only)

The Functional Testing License wizard enables you install, check out, or switch between license types on Windows machines.

Note: Installing licenses requires administrator permissions.

Install a Seat license

  1. Access the wizard from the Start menu (HPE Software > HPE UFT Pro (LeanFT) > Tools > Functional Testing License Wizard).

  2. In the License Wizard start screen, select Seat license.
  3. In the Seat License installation screen, do one of the following:

    Tip: You must have a license key before you do this step. If you don't yet have a license key, click How can I get a license key file and following the on-screen instructions.

    • Click Load License Key File and select the license key .dat file that you received from your HPE representative.

    • Paste the license key into the edit field.
  4. Verify that the license key is valid, and click Install.
  5. When the installation of the license is complete, restart the LeanFT runtime engine to apply the new license.

Note:  

  • Limited seat licenses. If you install a time-limited seat license, do not modify the date on your computer. Doing so will block your active seat license and prevent future LeanFT seat license installations on that computer.

    For more information, contact your HP license supplier.

  • MAC address or host name changes. If you modify the MAC address or host name of the computer after installing a seat license, you must regenerate and install your seat licenses again.
