Interview Question 3: Explain the difference between QuickTest Pro licenses?

There are two types of QTP 9.1 licenses: seat and concurrent.

The seat license is specific to the computer on which it is installed. Each installation of QuickTest Pro requires a distinct permanent license key. When QA engineer selects seat license option during initial software installation, he/she also gets a 14-day evaluation period during which the company must request a QTP license code for a permanent license from the HP/Mercury Customer Service.

The concurrent license is specific to the organization on which it is installed. Each license entitles the company to one additional concurrent user running automated testing tool. There is no limit to the number of QTP 9.1 installations around company, but a special concurrent license server regulates the number of computers that can run a copy of QuickTest Professional at any time.
