Upgrade Loadrunner.

Jump to solution
Currently have loadrunner 8.0 and need to upgrade.

From reading other forums, is it correct that the upgrades are FREE?

If not it could take months to get management approvals and the ball rolling.
If so, where do I start with all the upgrade documentation.

Thanks everyone.

Use the Software Update Manager link in the left column of this page to download the software. This link http://www11.itrc.hp.com/service/sum/home.do then select download updates and you will be presented with a list of software. Download the version that you want to use.

If your maintenance is up-to-date you can get the upgrade. You have to have a maintenance agreement to upgrade.

Thanks for your response Alan.

We do have a maint. agreement that management just renewed.

So now how do I go about starting the upgrade with HP.

Also, is it something simple or does it require a hp consultant to come in and do configurations or is the upgrade like other software tools where you just go through the installation menu prompts and easy to folow.

Re: Upgrade Loadrunner.

Jump to solution
if you have renewed the licenses...you can upgrade to latest version of LR.

LR 9.52 is the latest available version.

Upgradation process is simple; you need to cleanly uninstall LR 8.0 and then run the setup of LR 9.5.

Which protocol is your LR8.0 licensed?

If you perfom upgrade, you can re-use the same keys. License keys are not tied to any specific version but the Host-Id.

If you have any issues in licensing the new version of product, link suggested by Alan should answer your issue.

All The best!!

Thanks also for your reply Shivaram.

We have license for web(http/html).

Couple of more questions.

We have a total of 4 machines that have loadrunner components in them.

- One machine with just the VuGen.
- One with the VuGen, Controller and Anaylis.
- Two with just the Agent Process as load generators.

Are there different installs for each of the components or you just 1 install file but we choose what we want to install as we go through the process on each machine.
When we orginally started with loadrunner many years ago, this is the way the consultants installed.

Thanks again. I know will get all the details once I start the upgrade, but the more information upfront the better.

There is one install disk and you can choose what you want to install. Controller, VuGen only, or Load generator. You can load VuGen and the Load generator software on as many machines as you need. Your license is only tied to the Controller machine.

after running setup......you need to choose custom setup

It will take you to custom installation....you can select VUGen, Analysis, LoadGenerator etc.....

As Alan said....LR licenses are tied to controller machine only...

All The Best!!
