How to test future behaviour of an application with UFT



I'm facing the following problem: I need to test how an application will behave after a certain number of days (showing a disclamer after x days from the latest login, for example...)

It is very easy to change the system date from withing UFT to achive such a test, but the problem is that by doing it, I mess with the UFT licensing!!

So I have no other ideas of how to proceed...

Any ideas and suggestions are very welcome!

I think a workaround could be:

run UFT on machine A, open RDP to machine B where the AUT is installed and dates tampered.

Now use the RDP window as your new AUT, use text area/bitmap checkpoint to check the existence of the dislaimer.

Hope it helps.
