QTP - Why Cannt I download patches if I have trial version? Shall I evaluate Selenium instead????

[ Edited ]

HP is being too stingy ...you cannt even evaluate a product smoothly...

QTP is only loosing popularity since HP buyout

its time you guys redo marketing approach for QTP 

only changing name and restricting iits usage not gonna help...

Not even worth a proper response

 

This forum is for people who want solutions to problems they are facing with the tools - not a gripe box

Looks like the moderator moved the post from Feedback section to here. I don't see anything wrong with the original post as such. He is raising a genuine concern which many feel that ever since HP took over QTP, it is no longer the same.

Well, the patches are indeed available direct from HP support without using even using the HP support ID. Just use this format.

 

Replace <PatchName> with the desired patch.

For ex to download UFT_0001.EXE ,

But how on earth are you supposed to know which Patch you need without a proper search facility and a guide to chose the required patches? When I searched the patches, it showed a lot of them but without any detailed description of when the patches are needed. As others have mentioned in this forum, there are many patches which are incompatible with one another too. So, basically that messes things up. There are 1000s of other software that have better patch management than the one offered by HP currently.

I do have to say RMED has a point.

 

Actually when I want to look for a patch I actually search for the forum entry that this has been talked about or announced.

 

The actual software page of HP is a bit erm... messy.

 

Thanks.

Yes, there is no easy way. BTW, have you tried HP Software Update? If you have Internet connection, it will automatically check for the latest patch for your QTP and add-ins, and will suggest you to download. I used it a couple of times, not always. I found that using an offline installation is much more easier.
