Ruth- Are you sure that UFT 3.0 cannot be installed as an upgrade to alll versions of UFT, including UFT 1.0a, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8 and 2.9? I thought that UFT 3.0 would install over any of them. Or install as a standalone product.
However, downloaded "upgrades" (not full versions) of UFT 2.1 - 2.8 supposedly could not be used upgrade UFT 1.0, which was the limited version sold at a slightly cheaper price.
But, as I recall, even the UFT 1.0 CD contained all the features of the full version. But you couldn't get to them without sending in more money and getting the appropriate code.
Or at least I thought that was the way it worked when I made my initial purchase of UFT 1.0 in 1997.
