NV Insights report : "Warning: Failed to get NV emulation handle"

I am trying NV insights report for the first time but getting this message in vugen output "Warning: Failed to get NV emulation handle" when executing the script from vugen.

I am using Load runner 12.60 - Community edition and have installed NV4LGSetup.exe separately from additional components

Protocol : HTTP


1. Checked http://localhost:8182/shunra/license/#main and expiry column says 'not yet started'.

2. On clicking 'Active Adapter settings' in NVAgent, getting message as 'The feature is not allowed by the current NV license'.

please help if I am missing some setup/configuration or license needs to be purchased for NV insights report (though microfocus says that there is trial of 30 days for the same).

Re: NV Insights report : "Warning: Failed to get NV emulation handle"

Hi Nakkeeran

1. Since PC/LR/VuGen 12.60, NV is not required a license but you'll still be limited on total Vusers license you have.

2. There is one exception for above statement:  Global Library feature still requires any purchased license beside VUDs license.

3. Regard to your question: If you have a purchased LR license (any license) please install it and check if you can generate NV Insights from LR/VuGen, If not please contact me privately and i'll send you a license.

4. Can you send me  NV logs folder , default path is: "C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\NV\logs".

Best Regards,
