The problem I think users are having is with the Microsoft instructions on their site. here are written instructions (specifically for UFT), which seems to have helped those having problems with the Microsoft instructions.
-------------------------- Here are the steps to patch the file.
1.Download the patch file patch_26.exe from the Microsoft site.
When you type the "patch26" line, you should see some lines that indicate the patch was executed successfully. Type "exit" and press Enter in the command prompt window to return to Windows.
You should be able to start UFT without errors now. Note that when the patch is run, there is a new file called "Copy of Foxw2600.esl" in the UFT directory. You should be able to delete this "copy" without any problems with UFT.
