Hi, I wanted to automate remote server application through local desktop. I can not install UFT on remote server as it is on client's side. How can I automate remote server?

hi, there

UFT has Insight feature which can automate the application based on the image. So you may consider the RDP window as a single window the everything inside is a picture. UFT may look for the picture and do basic operations like sendkey or mouse click. 

It is not recommended, however, to use this approach. Insight is designed for unrecognizable objects and it's highly dependent on the resolution (the size) of the application. 

Thanks.
