UFT 12 - Impressions
I have seen UFT 11.53.
I know that 12.x is available. Does anyone have any comments about it?
Did it change a lot?
It really depends what exactly you are looking for. It has changes like Image recognition and good bundling with Service test and ALM. But it really depends. If you are into descriptive programming, will say it does not matter if you are using qtp10.0 or uft 12.0 As I am able to run the same scripts with uft12.0. Important thing is browser compatibility and other things might be added. You have check as per your usage.
It seems to suffer from some of the same issues 11.5x did.
I had a problem with it when we upgraded to 11.50 in that the tool would never successfully open more than once per windows session. I basically had to reboot every time I wanted to use UFT. We opened a support ticket and they eventually got us squared away, but after installing 12 the other day, I noticed that the original issue was re-introduced. Fortunately, the previous solution also resolved the problem this time around, so I wasn't down for more than a few minutes.
CW do you want to list what the resolution was in case other forum user are looking for a resolution?
Ultimately, HP Support ended up providing us with a modified version of a file, calendar.dll. There was no patch created to address the issue.
When pressed on what was done, they said they commented some sections of code out.
This worked for us, but may not be appropriate for everyone, which might explain why the resolution wasn't included in 12.

UFT 12 is very usefull if we want work on IE11 applications. I found few drawbcaks in UFT12 like when you keep breakpoints in UFT and close UFT without removing, The breakpoints are remain same if we open the same script again. UFT 12 is not identifying silverlight objects IE 11 even it supports. Pleae let me know if any one has a solution to identify silverlight5 application objects using UFT12.
