Not able to connect UFT with IBM PCOM Terminal Emulator


We are using UFT 14.53 and IBM PCOM 3270 terminal emulator to automate mainframe application. While validating the TE settings in UFT (Tools - options ->GUI Testing -> Terminal Emulator -> Vendor: IBM ->Emulator: IBM PCOM -> Protocol :Tried with all the available options -> validate option), getting HLLAPI.dll not valid.

We have tried modifying the setting in "open wizard" option, but after selecting dll path, procedure name and clicking on next button, getting "UFT couldn't properly connect to terminal emulator. Please check the dll path, procedure name..Please assist on this. 

Thanks in Advance,

Re: Not able to connect UFT with IBM PCOM Terminal Emulator

Are you able to successfully connect using the PCOM client manually?  You have to do this before opening UFT to do the configuration.  

Typically if you connect manually and then set the UFT protocol to Auto-detect, it will find the HLLAPI.dll on it's own and you won't need the wizard.
