Performance Center 9.5 Vugen 11 and Windows 7

We have the followingf setup:

 

1. Vugen 11 or Vugen 9.5.1

2. Performance Center 9.5

3. Windows 7

4. IE 8

 

We can use either Vugen 11 or 9.5.  So far we are not able to record on win 7 using Vugen 11. People are talking about a patch but I cannot find the patch for IE8.  I have following questions:

 

1. Would scripts generated using Vugen 11 run on PC 9.5?

2. Can Vugen 9.5 be used to record on win 7 and IE 8?

3. Can you please point me to where I can find the patch for Vugen 11 to record with IE8?

 

Your reply is much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

g

Re: Performance Center 9.5 Vugen 11 and Windows 7

1. It is not supported to run higher version script on a previous version. Only backward-compatibility is supported to a certain extend (i.e VuGen 9.5x script on PC 11).

2. VuGen 9.5x is not supported on Windows 7

VuGen 9.52 with the latest patches can record IE8 on a supported OS (e.g. Windows XP SP3)

VuGen 9.5x are VuGen 11 only supports recording on a 32Bit system.

3. On Windows 7 32Bit you should be able to record IE, after ensuring all the following Windows features are off:

If you cannot record using VuGen 11.03 (with the latest patches), open a ticket with HP support:

Critical Update LR Full: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM999242
Patch 3 LR Full: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1170997

 

Critical Update Vugen SA: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM999238

Patch 3 Vugen SA: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1170993

 

Support IE8 recording for VuGen 9.52

Thanks for your reply.

 

So basically there is no way for this setup to work. Vugen 9.5 , win 7, IE8 and performance center 11.

 

Also I cannot access any of the links you posted as it seems one need to have the support contract.

 

Thanks,
G

Vugen 11 will only work with Windows 7 32-bit.  Vugen 12 will be able (my understanding) to work with 64-bit.

Re: Performance Center 9.5 Vugen 11 and Windows 7

You can develop scripts in Vugen 9.5 and replay them in Vugen 11 and run them on PC 11. But I would not recomend it if the browser you have is IE 8, better go with Vugen 11 that does not require the patch.

 

And since its just the Vugen component should not be too complicated and does not require a license to install.
