Is QTP license required to just run QTP scripts
We need to test multiple test applications on multiple platforms for the laptops/notebooks.And as a test process we keep getting new OS versions and we install new OSes on the test units, which means each time we install new Os we need to install QTP and QTP installation would take atleast an hour and finally to run the QTP scripts we need QTP license. I have 2 questions here,
with this scenario do you think QTP is ideal tool for our test purpose ? Is its a must to have QTP license installed to run the qtp scripts on the test machines, as we send the scripts to our ODMs for testing and they dont have QTP license as they dont buy QTP. (Is QTP license required only to develope QTP scripts or do we need license to even just run the qtp scripts on a new machine?)Please let me know
Re: Is QTP license required to just run QTP scripts
Yes, you need the license to run scripts as well.
Would suggest making an image of your various hardware configurations with qtp already installed so you at least save some time there. And I presume you have a floating license agreement as that's what you would want there.
