Step - 1: Setting up the logging options. RFT provides many logging options. Here we can use the HTML log.

b) In the left pane of the Preferences window, expand "Functional Test" > then "Playback" > click "Logging".

c) Verify that the Use "Default" check box is selected and that html appears in the "Log type" field.

d) Click "OK".

These setting of Step -1, shall open the HTML log automatically after playing back of a script.

Step - 2: Creation of a Functional Tester project

a) In the Functional Tester menu, click "File" > "New" > "Functional Test Project".

b) Provide a logical "Project name" without any spaces for example - Testtutorial.
