Loadrunner for .Net Windows based client server application

Hi All,

I am evaluating loadrunner 11 for a windows based client server application that is developed using visual studio 2012 >net framework 4.5 and uses windows communication foundation to talk to a middle tier service created using same technology and middle tier service talks to SQL server using ADO.Net. I tried to record some actions using .Net protocol however I am unable to replay as there are warnings about primary references:could not be resolved because it was built against the ".NETFramework,Version=v4.5" framework. This is a higher version than the currently targeted framework ".NETFramework,Version=v4.0". After doing some research I found out that Loadrunner 11 does not support .Net framework 4.5 as of now. Just wanted to know even after this support issue if I am able to record script will it make any difference if I try to create a custom filter to suit my application and give it a try or do I give up on using Loadrunner .Net protocol?

Hi,

 

You are right that .Net 4.5 is currently not supported. There is ER logged for this purposed which is available from the following link: 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/FID/DOCUMENTUM_QCCR1J31305

 

If you want you can review the following posts :

If you want you can try to create a custom filter and give it a try if you want.

As a workaround you can try to record your application using RDP protocol.

 

Kind regards,
