Do both download options come with the 50vUser Community license or is it only the Community version available from HP website link you posted?

 

We have someone looking to do a POC and they need the 50 vUSer community license so it's critical I get my hands on the right one.

Hi,

 

just started today with trying to get LR to work with selenium for a POC. Used the tutorial@ http://www.joecolantonio.com/2014/05/08/how-to-run-a-selenium-script-in-loadrunner/ as a kickstart. Run vUser works like a charm, but running with launch controller ends in an error (after starting the script):

You do not have a license for this Vuser type.
Please contact HP Software to renew your license.

 

😞

 

What kind of additional license is required?

Hello,

 

we are missing the support for IE11 TrueClient so much.

 

How long will it take to support it? It´s really a big problem here, everything in our environment is already running on IE11 but we cannot use our TrueClient scripts..

 

How long will it take to support IE11 for TrueClient?

 

kind regards

@MansM

 

I've been unable to locate the "Developer Bundle" that has been mentioned. Have you attempted to contact your dedicated HP Account Team? They would probably be the best resource for you. If you are interested, I can connect you with the appropriate folks. Send me a PM or use this link to have someone contact you.

You can download the software and read the readme and the installation guide prior to installation. It has the most detailed and accurate info.

Re: LoadRunner 12.01 Released!

i am new to LoadRunner and want to learn it. I downloaded 'HP LoadRunner 12.01 Community Edition' and want to practice it with 'HP Web Tours' server and application. 

 

But I could not find it under folder: HP->LoadRunner->Samples

 

by Googling it, I expected to see: HP->LoadRunner->Samples->Web->...

 

Do I have to download other packages such as : 

 

HP LoadRunner 12.01 Community Edition Additional Components, 

HP LoadRunner 12.01 Community Edition Standalone Applications,

HP LoadRunner 12.01 Community Edition User Interface Packs, or

HP LoadRunner tutorial ???

 

Please help. thanks.

Hello Sir,

 

Under "HP->LoadRunner->Samples->Web->" you should have:

  • Start HP Web Tours Server - this shortcut starts the web server with the sample app. Run it first.
    Alternatively, you can do the following:
    - Go to LoadRunner installation folder -> WebTours. In my PC it is "C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\LoadRunner\WebTours"
    - Run StartServer.bat
  • HP Web Tours Application - this shortcut opens the browser to access the web app. It points to "http://127.0.0.1:1080/WebTours/index.htm".
    Run it second.

You don't need to download and install the other "community edition" packages in order to have the 'HP Web Tours' working.

Re: LoadRunner 12.01 Released!

Hello,

 

LoadRunner 12.01 is a complete installation package, that includes all LoadRunner 12.00 and LoadRunner 12.00 patch 1 content. I already have LoadRunner 12.00 installed. During the installation process, will I have the option of only installing the patch 1 content? 

 

I ask this because I have heard there is not an option of just installing the patch 1 and the installation file fails to uninstall LR 12.00 before it does the complete install of the newer version.  If this is true, are there instructions of how to manually do a complete uninstall of LR12 before installing this version?
