Error description

  • GH Tester's integration with HP's Quick Test Pro does not work

    c:\Program Files whereas on those platforms it is in c:\Program
    Files (x86)

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester 8.5.1 or later.       *

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused because Tester was assuming that Quick
    Test Pro was installed in c:\program files.  On 64 bit versions
    of Windows it would be installed in c:\program files(x86) and
    the integration failed.  This has been resolved in Rational
    Integration Tester 8.5.1.
