What exactly happens when you try to create a test in ALM as a type=Service Test?
You can convert a manual test to an automated test by going to the Design Steps display for the test. Above the grid displaying the design steps is a toolbar button labeled "Generate Script". If you pull down that button it will give you a list of automated scripts types that can be generated. The list will include only the types that the workstation you are currently on is capable of producing. To generate a Service Test script you would need to be using the ALM UI on a workstation where the appropriate UFT add-in had been installed.
