Vugen Replay Error
I just wanted to give you a quick heads-up if anyone else is seeing this behavior.
If you are running a standalone instance of LoadRunner VUGEN with either the Web or Web Services protocol and are getting the following errors:
Could not find file C:Program Files\HP\Analysis\dat\db_connection.xsl
Could not find file C:Program Files\HP\Analysis\dat\Results.css
Could not find file C:Program Files\HP\Analysis\dat\db_executesql.xsl
Could not find file C:Program Files\HP\Analysis\dat\db_getdbvalue.xsl
Save your sanity by knowing that this is a known issue.
WTF causes this?
Turns out that it matters what order you install the LoadRunner components on your machine!
If you have both VUGEN and the Analysis pieces on the same machine these errors are caused by installing VUGEN first.
To get past these errors here is the install order that HP recommends:
- Install the standalone Analysis component first
- Install the standalone VuGen component
This also applies to patches
Install the standalone LoadRunner Analysis component patch first than install the VuGen patch
