Known Limitations

Client Certification
Software packages use code signing to create a digital "shrink-wrap" for code and content to protect software publishers and users. Digital signatures authenticate the source (individual, organization or software vendor) and verify the integrity of content.

The digital signature is renewed periodically (usually every several years). The digital signature is a digital “hand shake” between the installed package and the target computer. When the computer is connected to the Internet or regular updates are applied, the computer side is updated automatically.

HP Software recently renewed its digital certification with VeriSign. VeriSign root certificate is used to validate if HP files was updated to ensure the highest level of security. This might affect the Quality Center version 10 patch 28 and later.

The following error may occur when trying to load the Quality Center client:

“Initialization has failed. Contact your system admin. For Details, see the Loader file.”

Here is an example from ALM version 11.00:


This can occur if the client machine is missing the new root certificate.

Client Certification
Software packages use code signing to create a digital "shrink-wrap" for code and content to protect software publishers and users. Digital signatures authenticate the source (individual, organization or software vendor) and verify the integrity of content.

The digital signature is renewed periodically (usually every several years). The digital signature is a digital “hand shake” between the installed package and the target computer.

The following error may occur when trying to load the Quality Center client:

“Initialization has failed. Contact your system admin. For Details, see the Loader file.”

Here is an example from ALM version 11.00:


This can occur if the client machine is missing the new root certificate.

Enhancements

Enhancement: QCCR1J20305
Description:  Compare baseline: A renamed TestSetFolder is now displayed as "Modified."

Enhancement:  QCCR1J13525
Description:  A new parameter for controlling the size of the attachments is now available.
Solution: The new site parameter UPLOAD_ATTACH_MAX_SIZE (size in KB) controls the maximum size of attachments added using OTA and using the UI. This parameter has no effect on attachments added using integration tools.

Limitations: Consider the following limitations when working with this enhancement:

·            QCCR1J24139: The "Do you want to delete the selected attachment?" confirmation message appears instead of the "File exceeds permitted size" error message when you are trying to add an attachment whose size exceeds the limit set with the UPLOAD_MAX_ATTACH_SIZE parameter.

·           QCCR1J24080: An error message appears when saving (posting) a defect or requirement with an attachment whose size exceeds the limit set with the UPLOAD_ATTACH_MAX_SIZE parameter. Instead, the error message should appear when adding the attachment to the defect or requirement.

 

Certifications

The following environments are now certified.

·         Business Process Testing and Service Test 11.2 were certified on Windows 2008R2 SP1 as a server.

·         Business Process Testing and Service Test 11.2 were certified on Oracle 11.2.0.2

·         Business Process Testing and Service Test 11.2 were on Windows Vista SP2 32bit as a client.

Enhancements

Session Reconnect 

When your Quality Center session is inactive for a period of time, the session expires. Previously, this required you to log out and log in again, which includes reloading project customization.

Now, when your session expires, you are prompted to reconnect. If the project administrator has not made any significant changes to the project customization, the customization does not reload, enabling you to reconnect quickly and continue working where you left off.

For more information on Session Reconnect, see HP Software Self-solve knowledge base article KM1031602 http://support.microfocus.com/kb/kmdoc.php?id=KM1031602

 

Hierarchical view improvements

There were several changes in the Go To Entity algorithm in the Requirements and Test Lab modules that improves performance of the first module loading and Go To operation. Improvements consist in the reducing of the round-trips to the server when we build the tree of entities.

 

Parallel QTP Execution

You can now choose to run QuickTest Professional multiple tests simultaneously, optimizing the execution of multiple QuickTest Professional tests.

For more information on Parallel QTP Execution, see HP Software Self-solve knowledge base article KM1031602

http://support.microfocus.com/kb/kmdoc.php?id=KM1031589

 

QC Sense

Site administrators can now utilize usage and performance data to analyze Quality Center performance behaviors from the user perspective. For example, you can look at the time it takes from the user's click of a button until the desired response is received.

QC Sense collects data on user actions performed in the Quality Center user interface, and monitors all client and server activity resulting from those actions. You can examine a single user activity and its resulting server and database activities, as well as comparing average system response analyzed by user action, server transaction and many other parameters.

Enhancements

 

Windows 7 64- bit

Windows 7 64-bit is now certified for Quality Center 10.00.

The following section describes how to prepare and configure Windows 7 for client-side installation. The following section is also applicable for Vista clients.

Note: There is a major difference between usage and installation. Installation should always be performed with administrator privileges. However, logging in as an administrator does not provide administrator rights. For both installation methods – browser or MSI – you must specify that the installation is to be run as administrator. More details are provided below.

 

To work with Windows 7 64-bit:

1.     Prerequisites. The following must be installed prior to Quality Center 10.00 client installation:

a.     Microsoft Installer version 3 or later

b.    Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 or later

c.     Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 and higher

d.    CAPICOM 2.1.0.2.

e.     For rich content and Document Generator: MS Office 2003 or 2007 (preferable due to DEP issue)

f.     For Document Generator: MS XML 3.0

 

2.     Uninstall previous versions:

a.     Previous installations of Quality Center must be completely removed, including unregistering and deleting all modules.

 

b.    If the previous version was installed with MSI (Quality Center client side): Uninstall using the MSI installer. Make sure to also remove the spider.

 

c.     If the previous version was installed using the browser (i.e.  Spider): You must unregister (regsvr32.exe -u) all components and spider, for example, from “Program Files\Common Files\Mercury Interactive\Quality Center”.

 

d.    Quality Center Client Installation:

1.     Quality Center Client Side (i.e. MSI) installation: The MSI installation should be initiated from a command line prompt, run as an administrator.

2.     Internet Explorer installation (i.e. Spider): The installation should be initiated from Internet Explorer, run as an administrator.

3.     Quality Center 10.00 should not be installed using elevation.

Note: If the installation is initiated from an IE/Command Line Prompt and not run as administrator, the following may occur: Quality Center will keep retrying to download components, and report failings in either downloading the components, opening downloaded files, or registering components.


 

3.     Installation Procedure: You can install using client-side installation, Internet Explorer or Quality Center Explorer.

 

Quality Center 10.00 Client Side installation:

 

1.     Login to the Windows 7 or Vista machine as either an Administrator or as a standard user.

2.     Obtain and save a copy of QCClient.MSI in a temporary folder.

3.     Run an administrator Command Prompt shell (i.e. CMD.exe): (Note: Without explicitly running the command prompt as admin, the installation will fail.)

a.     For an interactive user: Choose Start > Programs > Command Prompt, right-click and choose Run as Administrator.

b.    If an elevation prompt window opens, provide credentials (i.e. User Name and Password of an Administrator user) if needed, or click ‘Continue’.

4.     In the command prompt window, navigate to the temporary folder where the QCClient.MSI file had been previously saved (3.1.b).

5.     Run QCClient.MSI from that command prompt.

6.     Follow the Quality Center 10.00 installation wizard instructions.

 

Quality Center 10.00 Internet Explorer Installation:

 

1.     Run Internet Explorer by right clicking the IE icon, and choosing ‘run as an Administrator’ (see also: step 3.1.c above as an example). If requested, provide credentials.

2.     Browse to the Quality Center Server URL. Quality Center downloads and installs automatically.

 

Quality Center Explorer Installation:

 

1.     Save a copy of QCExplorerAddIn.exe in a temporary folder, or download it to a temporary folder from a Quality Center Server site.

2.     Run an administrator Command Prompt shell (see item 3.1.c).

3.     Switch off DEP (Data Execution Prevention. For details, refer to the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Execution_Prevention):

a.     On the administrator command prompt – execute:
bcdedit /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

b.    Restart the machine

4.     Validate DEP is switched off by executing bcdedit.exe on an administrator Command Prompt. The ‘nx’ property value should be AlwaysOff.

5.     In the Administrator Command Prompt, navigate to the folder where QCExplorerAddIn.exe is located, and run it.

6.     Follow the installation instructions.

7.     After the Quality Center Explorer Add-in installation is completed, the DEP level can be restored to its previous level.
For example, if the previous DEP level was OptIn, run the following command in the Administrator Command Prompt:
bcdedit /set {current} nx OptIn

 

4.     Running Quality Center 10.00:

 

a.     For a standard user (i.e. non-admin user) running Internet Explorer, the Quality Center server site URL must be added to the Trusted Sites security zone. Protected Mode for that zone must be disabled (this is the default for that zone).

 

1.     Open Internet Options > Security Tab. Add the Quality Center server site to the Trusted Sites security zone.

2.     Disable (uncheck) Protected Mode for the Trusted Site security zone.

 

 

 

 

b.    A fully privileged user, i.e. an Administrator user, can run Quality Center 10.00 client with either Internet Explorer, or QCExplorer.

c.     Note: If an administrator user fails to run Quality Center after a successful installation, it might mean that UAC (User Account Control) is switched off. (See link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control for details). When UAC is disabled, Administrator users’ access to the Temp folder is blocked. In this case, a blank IE window opens after navigating to the Quality Center URL.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


5.     Notes:

 

MSI and Spider installation should never be used on the same Vista machine.
When re-installing a Quality Center client of the other type (i.e. MSI/Spider) on a machine with Quality Center, the previous installation must be completely removed, and all existing modules must be unregistered and deleted before re-installing. (Common symptoms include: Quality Center window hanging or blank before login, Quality Center hanging while trying to open the VAPI-XP Test Script tab, repeated attempts at downloading, and others).

 

Deletion of the client side components is not sufficient. Components must be unregistered.

·         Regular (COM) components should be unregistered using Regsvr32 /u

·         For .NET components use Regasm /u

·         Remove spider:

In Internet Options > Programs > manage add-ons, delete Loader class v5, or any Loader Class v*

 

In some cases, Vista might keep copies of components in places the user is not aware of. If there are problems after installation and uninstalling is not helpful, search for all Quality Center components on the client machine (File System and Registry). Remove all Quality Center related components.

Excel reports

Defect ID: QCCR1J12074

Problem: Usage of parameters in Excel reports did not conform to prepared statements.

 

The following describes Excel Reports SQL Writing Rules. These rules derive from Quality Center 10.00 changes, where the former literal SQL is replaced by prepared statements.

 

1.      Parameters can be used as possible column values only (WHERE part).

2.      Parameter can be used for a single value only (and not as a list of possible values).

3.      Parameter cannot be used for multiple values substitution.
For example:
This following SQL statement is incorrect:
Select * from BUG where BG_BUG_ID in (@p@), p=1,2,3

The correct form is:
Select * from BUG where BG_BUG_ID in (@p1@, @p2@, @p3@,), p1=1, p2=2, p3=3

4.      Parameters cannot be used as table aliases (AS usage).

5.       Neither parameters nor parameter values can be enclosed by quotes: parameter type resolving occurs on prepared statement compilation.

6.      Parameters cannot be part of another string.
For example, instead of:
Select * from bug where bg_priority like ‘%@p@%’, p=Low.
write:
Select * from bug where bg_priority like @p@, p=%Low%.

Alternatively use db type dependent concatenation (‘%’ + @p@ + ‘%’ (sql) or ‘%’ || @p@ || ‘%’ (oracle) where p=Low).

7.      Do not use special characters (non-word characters) in parameter names.

8.      The ‘?’ character in SQL text should not be used.
Instead, concatenate chr(63) in Oracle and char(63) in SQL to the rest of the SQL statement text.

9.      Do not use the ‘//’ combination in SQL. This combination is used for comments mark.
For example:
Select 'td://actions_upgrade.alexk.localhost:8080/qcbin/AnalysisModule-00000002220154988?EntityType=IAnalysisItem&EntityID=' + AI_ID From Analysis_Items

To resolve the problem, use string concatenation:
MSSQL:
Select 'td:/' + '/actions_upgrade.alexk.localhost:8080/qcbin/AnalysisModule-00000002220154988?EntityType=IAnalysisItem&EntityID=' + AI_ID From Analysis_Items
Oracle:
Select 'td:/' || '/actions_upgrade.alexk.localhost:8080/qcbin/AnalysisModule-00000002220154988?EntityType=IAnalysisItem&EntityID=' + AI_ID From Analysis_Items

 

Double quotes discovering SQL statements.

Use the following SQL statements from SQL tool or in Site Admin in order find all Excel reports with ‘double quotes’ problem.

MSSQL:
SELECT AI_ID, AI_NAME, AI_FILTER_DATA, 'td://[project_name].[domain_name].[server_name]:[port]/qcbin/[AnyModule]?EntityType=IAnalysisItem&EntityID='  + cast(AI_ID as varchar)  AS Excel_Report_URL
FROM ANALYSIS_ITEMS
WHERE (
                (AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%''@%' AND AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%DefaultValue="''%')
                OR
                                AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%''''@%'
                OR
                                AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%DefaultValue="''''%'
)
AND
AI_TYPE = 'ExcelReport'

 

ORACLE:
SELECT AI_ID, AI_NAME, AI_FILTER_DATA, 'td://[project_name].[domain_name].[server_name]:[port]/qcbin/[AnyModule]?EntityType=IAnalysisItem&EntityID='  || AI_ID AS Excel_Report_URL
FROM ANALYSIS_ITEMS
WHERE(
                (AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE ‘%''@%' AND AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%DefaultValue="''%')
                OR
                                AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%''''@%'
                OR
                                AI_FILTER_DATA LIKE '%DefaultValue="''''%'
)

 

Where:
[project_name] – project name the sql executed on
[domain_name] – domain name the mentioned project belongs to
[server_name] – qc server name
[port] – server port

 

 

Limitation: parameters cannot be located inside a comment block or line.

Vista and Windows 7

Issue

Solution

On machines with Hardware DEP enabled (OptIn level or higher), it is not possible to work with test scripts of QuickTest Professional or other testing tools from Quality Center.

Switch off DEP, or exclude the testing tool from DEP.

While working as standard users (non-administrator users) there may be operating system restrictions on saving files from Quality Center to file system folders.

Save the files to user folders, or assign the user appropriate permissions to access the folder.

 

While using the Microsoft Excel add-in, there may be field mapping problems.

Grant the user access permissions to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART\TDaddin to allow saving the mapping files.

 

MSR Player is not DEP compliant.

 

Installing MSR Player is not DEP compliant. (You can run MSR Player can work under DEP.)

In order to install the MSR Player, DEP level must be either OptIn, AlwaysOff ,or OptOut with MSR Player exempted.
