When running a script, record and stop button vanish and nothing more happens

I'm running version 14.00

I load an existing script that I have used many times before, when I click run, the menubar changes and the record button and stop button vanish, but nothing more happens. Se attached screenshot. 

So nothing happens after this? If the script didn't start I would have thought that the record button would show again. And I would have thought that it should be possible to stop the script. 

I have tried on 2 different pc's now and the same thing happens.  I'm lost in what this could be, is there anyone else that have experienced this?  My first thought was, could it be that the run windows is opening on a screen that I haven't on the current pc? That it remembers in what screen it opened before? But when using Alt + tab I can't see the run window. 

All hints will be highly appriciated.

Guess there's some sort of incompatibility between Windows updates & UFT. You could try a couple of things.

1) Create a  new test and run it. Check to see if it runs fine and the buttons are displayed. If it works, then we can assume it's the test that's problematic.

2) Try re-installing the Microsoft Script Debugger. You can get the installer from the Installation Source or from here (Download the attachment from the first response).

3) if none works, either try to re-install 14.0 or upgrade to the latest version 14.50 🙂

thanks for the quick response.
I'll try re-installing UFT. unfortunately we don't have admin rights so it complicates the process.
If I find a solution i'll post it.
