Local admin when running UFT

Hi

I was asked if local admin on machine is a pre-requistie for executing/creating test script in UFT.

If the local drive has already set up with certain access to everyone, i wonder if Local admin is a must.

Please kindly advise.

Hello

Admin permission are required for installation mostly especially on version bellow 12.54, and maybe your first conection to ALM if you are using that integration,

you will also need read and write permission on some folders but most users have them, 

Admin is not required to create and run scripts,

I hope this anwser your questions

Regards, 

Arturo

The install guide documents what folders and registry keys must be accessible to run as a non-admin.
