Download setupvugen.exeOpen in a New Window


I want to install vugen as a stand alone application.  I have downloaded the Loadrunner 12.53 installation files and have extracted them (including the Standalone Applications file) but, after running setup.exe and clicking on the VuGen link, nothing happens.

It looks like it is looking for a file "setupvugen.exe" which is not present.  Can anyone tell me where I can get hold of this file?

Thanks in advance,

How to setup a LoadGenerator on separate machine?Open in a New Window

Hi, I've performed a full installation of Loadrunner 12.53 in my machine, and I've setup some working testScripts.

Now I want to run them through the controller, with 2 load generators (the one on my machine and the one on another one, let's say Machine2). (both machines are windows10 physical machines).

I installed again Loadrunner 12.53 on Machine2, I didn't find the way of installing only the Load Generator Agent, so I installed again full loadrunner 12.53.

How do I setup Machine2 install?

How do I say to Machine1 controller to run Vusers on the loadgenerator of machine2.

When I click on "add new loadGenerator" it only let me to set a name and some information, but no IP adress or hostname of machine2 .. how can I be sure that Loadrunner Controller "sees" machine2's LoadGenerator?

Dockerised Load GeneratorOpen in a New Window

Hello All

introducing Docker support for StormRunner Load!

It was only a matter of time till a coupling between Docker and a load testing platform with burst capacities like StormRunner Load will happen.

Though StormRunner Load (aka SRL) does provide cloud burst capabilities, some users still need a secure way to load their system from behind the firewall - thus requiring an On-Premise Load Generator.

This solution has been around for a while, it took some time to mature to its current state.

Now, with the new load generator Docker image it takes mere seconds to deploy infrastructure that can support a wide variety of systems.

For more information, please check this short movie

Chrome Version supported by HP Load Runner 12.02Open in a New Window


Recently i got the trial version of HP Load Runner 12.02 installed on my machine. I am trying to figure out the answer of below mentioned 3 questions:-

1) Which version of Chrome is supported by LR 12.02?  I have Chrome version (Version 49.0.2623.87 m) installed on my machine but when i tried to record the script using Chrome browser for URL, nothing happened. Script did not get recorded.

2) Does Trial version of Load Runner provides vusers in Controller? If yes, then how many vusers? For me , it is giving message that Load Runner cannot create vusers.

3) Do the user need to have admin access on the machine where LR is installed? If not, then are there any implications of not having admin rights on the LR  machine.
