HP Sprinter 11.50 and QTP 11.00 cannot be installed on the same Machine
As the new version of HP Sprinter has been released I wanted to use both HP QTP 11.0 and HP Sprinter 11.50 in the same machine but this is the limitation of the sprinter 11.50 this is really sad, this is restricting me and my team to use sprinter, i dont no why this limitation because both are HP products only, if they fixed this immediately its good, otherwise so many user will stop using the new version and surly it will impact directly for product marketing.
Firstly there is a new version of Sprinter as well - 11.5
Second - if you read the Readme I think it clearly states that you must install version 11.5 of Sprinter and also you must install patch 18 to make it work with UFT/QTP 11.5
Thirdly - install QTP 11.5 first plus all the patches and connectivity add-ins etc. before installing Sprinter. Make sure you have admin rights on the the machine you install it on as the process starts several background processes as part of the install that need local admin rights
Then you will find that it all works as expected
Sorry - read that round the wrong way
Basically - no. You have to use matching pairs. So QTP 11 and Sprinter 11 or QTP 11.5 and Sprinter 11.5. This is becuase Sprinter uses elements of QTP engine to work.
e.g. Sprinter 11.5 has new functionality to create basic record and playback QTP script which needs the QTP 11.5 engine to do this.
Of course - you can have both installed on different machines
