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.
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE
  3. Right click on the SOFTWARE folder and go to permissions
  4. Click on Power Users and give full control.
  5. Reboot your machine.
