HP Introduces Different Types of License from QTP 11.0 Onwards

Working with QTP requires a valid license. Starting from QTP 11, you can now enjoy a 30 day demo license instead of the 14 day license. Till the demo period, you are not required to provide a license, however, after the demo period, you have to provide either of the three license information as mentioned below:

1) Seat License:
Seat license is specific to a computer on which QuickTest Professional is installed. For example, in case you want to open QTP on three different machines, then you would require 3 QTP seat licenses. After purchasing the license, you get a license code which is given by the vendor.

2) Concurrent License:
Concurrent license is like a floating license, which can be shared by multiple users. Taking the above example of 3 QTP users, in case they are in multiple geographies,

we can buy a single concurrent license instead of buying 3 seat licenses. The only constraint is at one time only one user can open QTP and do the scripting. If the user closes QTP, the license is free to be used by some other user. Taking one more example, we can buy 6 concurrent QTP licenses for a team of 11 people. Then at a time only 6 people can work with QTP and not the complete team. The concurrent license is installed on a computer and its IP address is used by the computers who want to work with QTP.

3) Commuter license:
A QTP commuter license is a special type of concurrent license, which is used in those cases when the license server is not available. It may happen that because of some network issues, the computer with a QTP concurrent license is not able to get connected to the main license server. In that case you may request your administrator to install a commuter license on it. Commuter license is actually a type of concurrent license, which acts similar to a seat license for a particular period of time.

The commuter license is valid for a maximum period of 180 days.

To know about which license is configured on your computer, open Help->About Quick Test Professional. Then click on the "License" button.

I am new in Software Testing field. I would like to learn more about Automation Testing. Also, can anyone please tell me what are the challenges in Automation testing?


# 2 Yogindernath on 2012-06-17 20:57:28

There are few challenges in Automation testing:

1. Should we automate the manual testing work or not?
2. How much automation should be done?
3. Do we have sufficient time for automating the test cases?
4. Do we have sufficient and skilled resources for doing automation.
5. Which automation tool to choose out of many available automation tools.

Please let me know if you need anything else?

Hello friends,

Is there anyone who has worked with VB APIs? Can anyone please share how to implement this in QTP? I am looking for the same.

# 4 Priya on 2012-06-17 21:02:07
Can anyone forward me the desired QTP API notes to

# 5 BrijMohan on 2012-06-17 21:03:59
Hi Sergiy,
Can you please tell me if you are planning to develop a DLL using VB. This DLL can be registred using REGSVR32 and use CreateObject(COM interface) to access the class methods then you have to go with VB6, this can be installed on XP machine.

You can also use DLL , this DLL can be registered using REGASM tools(provided with .Net Framework) and Dotnetfactory.createInstance to access the DLL classes/methods.

As far as I know, you can access Windows API from VB easily. If you have Visual Studio, API converter tool very helpful. Without Visual Studio, for the VB type API declaration you can refer to MSDN.

Using Windows API from Quicktest is similar - just declare the API with extern keyword.

Hi friends,

I am facing a very strange issue in QTP. When I run my scripts on QTP 11 in Windows XP, I am getting the error

QuickTest Professional has stopped working

The strange part is I am getting this error only in this script,however, my other scripts are running fine.

Has anyone else faced this QTP issue? I am a newbie in Quicktest.

Hi Soumya,

Please let me know which version of browser you are getting the above QTP error?

# 9 Pattinson on 2012-06-17 21:30:07
I believe that QTP is likely failing due to some unhandled exception. It could be possible that your QTP installation has been corrupt.

Please try to reproduce this issue in other machines and if it persists, please log a request with HP and they will help you out.
