Unable to see the Flex and Air Add-ins if your machine login does not have administator rights ???

11 02 2010

I have recently got quite a few complaints from people saying that if they were to logĀ onto their machine without adminstrator rights the Flex and AIR add ins do not get displayed in the add- in manager screen of QTP even though the flex plugin has been installed.This can be a really serious problem with customers working in large organizations where not everyone has admin right to the systems they use.

After a long discussion with HP we have come up with a solution.Just follow the below steps and you’re good to go

  1. Enter regedit in the command prompt.
  3. Right click on the SOFTWARE folder and go to permissions
  4. Click on Power Users and give full control.
  5. Reboot your machine.
