Unable to view snapshot on error in Controller and VuGen

Loadrunner version: 8.1.4
OS:Windows 2003 enterprise and XP

Runtime Setting ->Miscellaneous ->'Generate snapshot on error' is checked;

After replay in VuGen, try to click‘View replay snapshot only’button on the scritp which the error occured,but the button is disabled;

After running in controller, double-clicking on the line at which the error occurred, there is no snapshot open, and the 'snapshot' button is disabled.

I have no idea why? BTW, Firefox, Netscape and IE 6 are all installed in the computer.

It's too difficult to analysis when error occuring without 'snapshot on error', pls help me.
Thanks in advance.

In both VUgen and the Controller, the snapshot is only viewable if you are in Tree view. Don't ask me why...

Re: Unable to view snapshot on error in Controller and VuGen

Thanks James!
Yes, I have seen snapshot in VUGen test result.

But still can't see snapshot in Controller vuser log. I have captured a graph about vuser log as attachment, is it the right place to see snapshot?

You mentioned 'tree view in Controller', where to find it?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Unable to view snapshot on error in Controller and VuGen

Hi,

I have faced the Same Issue in Load runner 12.50V, as per my knowledge, i have checked that if i give a lengthy File Path for Controller Result, the Screen shots are not generated,

please Give a Shot File Path as "D:\Result 1 " and run the Controller Scenario, and check whether u get the Screenshot generated on error.

hope this may help you.

and if the error is not related to Application Object Detection, or Object action, and system error then it may be a reason its not generating screenshot,

Re: Unable to view snapshot on error in Controller and VuGen

Hi guys,

I Got that snapchat on error in controller i have attached that image in below please find it.

when you got error in VUgen then only you got that error in controller which will be visible to you..

Steps:--

1. Take a sample web tours application 

2. Record the script in vugen don't conduct correlation.

3. Put a check point using web_reg_save_param("text=dileep",LAST); which is invalid

4. Push that script into controller & enable that Snapcha on error option in controller RTS >> Misllanious>> Generate Snapchat on error.

5. Run the test verify the vuser log by clicking vuser option at running test.

This will be helpfull...........
