QTP/UFT support tip: How to change the run mode

QTP and UFT have 2 modes to run a test: Fast Mode and Normal Mode.

There are different ways to control this depending on what you need.

1) Change the mode directly from the Tool:

UFT: -Click on Tools>Options>Gui Testing>Test Runs          

        -Select the mode you prefer from the Run mode options.


QTP: -Click on Tools>Options>Run

         -Select the mode you prefer from the Run mode options.


2)  If you are running the scripts from ALM, modify the mic.ini file.

     a-Open the "mic.ini" file from the <QTP-UFT>/bin directory.

     b-Find the "[RemoteAgent]" section.

     c-Enter the following entry to this section:. 

     RunInFastMode=0 --for normal mode


     RunInFastMode=1 --for fast mode

     d-Save and close the mic.ini file.
     e-Close the Remote Agent system tray tool.
     f-If changes aren't effective, reboot the machine.

3) Set the mode from Automation Object Model (AOM).

    You can create a vbscript file using AOM to launch QTP/UFT open the test set the mode and run it.

    This is a sample of how to run a test in normal mode:

    Dim qtApp 'As QuickTest.Application ' Declare the Application object variable

    Dim qtTest 'As QuickTest.Test ' Declare a Test object variable

    Set qtApp = CreateObject("QuickTest.Application") ' Create the Application object

    qtApp.Launch ' Start QuickTest

    qtApp.Visible = True ' Make the QuickTest application visible

    ' Set QuickTest run options

    qtApp.Options.Run.CaptureForTestResults = "OnError"  'Capture lines on Error for test result

    qtApp.Options.Run.RunMode = "Normal"  'Run in normal mode.

    qtApp.Options.Run.ViewResults = False   'disable the auto launch test result at the end of the execution.

    qtApp.Open "C:\Temp\GUITest1", True ' Open the test in read-only mode

    qtApp.Test.Run   'Run test

    Set qtResultsOpt = Nothing ' Release the Run Results Options object

    Set qtTest = Nothing ' Release the Test object

    Set qtApp = Nothing ' Release the Application object
