    • For Add-in Packages related panes, please check if you have add-in loaded properly. For Others it seems there is some issue with installation. Can you try re-installing/repair your UFT installation?

    • While installing you need to add all the required add-ins.If not you cannot see them in your addin manager.Batter reinstall checking for addins
