Run UFT scripts in background

Hello Everyone, 

I want to work while UFT scripts running. But It fails when I change screen because it takes mouse and keyboard controI. I installed UFT in remote machine but it occurs same problem. 

Is there any good solution to run UFT scripts in a background while doing anything?

 

Thanks

Well,

Since UFT being a GUI testing tool, it is quite impossible to have it running on the same machine you are working on. Simply because you will intefere with it's actions and vice versa.

You can run it on a remote desktop configuration or VmWare and this way it will run unattended and indisturbed.

Citrix sessions are also a solution

Thank you for reply. I will try on these solutions. And what about ALM integration? Is it possible to run my scripts on alm server while working?

You wish to run the script through the ALM, while it will be running on YOUR machine??

Yes it is. Or which ALM solution can run my scripts on server without any concern? 

And I think UFT concurrent licences based on server so it is designed for background run. Is it correct? 

 

 

 

Thank you.
