VuGen Recording RDP VMWare Session

Has anyone used the Microsoft Remote Desktop protocol (RDP) to record and playback a remote session on a VMWare virtual server? I can record a session OK but the playback responds with "Error: Requested desktop size of 1024 x 768, but received desktop size of 18 x 13878" and aborts. I can't seem to get around this issue.

Kirandbadi1991,
Thanks for the input but I am at a complete loss for what you are saying. Can you please be more specific? Have you actually ever recorded an RDP script involving VMWare?
Thanks,
Arnie

Sorry for not being able to give you any hints, but ...

Additional questions:
1. what version of RDP is being used or which version of Windows are you recording?
2. is RDP 6 (Vista) now supported by LR/PC 9.5?

Regards, Marc

Marc,
We're running LR v9.10 w/patch P026 on a Windows Server 2003/SP2 system. I believe that is RDP 5.2. I don't know about Vista RDP.

See the attachment, there is screen resolution field, its changing in your case.Maybe a setting a VM is implementing this change in order to save GDI resources.Talk to your server admin and tell them you are facing this problem.They will surely help you out.

Yes I have experiences with VMWARE and RDP,CITRIX.
rdp and citrix work almost similar.

Hi All,

 

I am not sure whether this thread has been closed or not. I am trying to record a script, after connecting to VMWare, but it doesn't generate any script, after i record. I am using VuGen 9.52 with IE 8 patch installed and my OS is Win 7. Can any one please help me in solving the issue. Appreciate your response in this regard. Thanks in advance.

 

Thanks & Regards

We can able to do the scripting for the Vmware client using the load runner RDP protocol however there are some pre-requsite techniques needs to be followed before you kick off this patten.
