LoadRunner 11.50 Licensing Change and Protocol Bundles

patch update

LoadRunner 11.50’s licensing mechanism has changed

If you’re like me and can’t wait to have the latest and greatest version of software on your machine, you should be aware that, unlike previous upgrades, LR 11.50 has been modified to requires a new license.

Since current LoadRunner users cannot continue to use their existing licenses, you will need to generate a valid new one.

To Request a LoadRunner License

To Request a License you’ll need to:

LR 11.5 Protocol Bundles

If you’re requesting a new license, you should also be aware of what the protocol bundles for LoadRunner 11.5 and Performance Center 11.50 are:

Do the same instructions apply to Performance Center?

    Bill » Hi Bill good question – I can only find info pertaining to LR 11.50 but my guess is that it also applies to Perf Center. I can open a ticket with HP and find out for sure.

      Joe Colantonio » Hi Bill just wanted to let you know that I did confirm with HP support: “For upgrades to PC 11.5 a new license is needed as well as for LR 11.5, this is because version 11.5 uses a different license technology.

Hi Joe,
Thank you for share all your knowledge, it have been a lot of help for us.
I have a Load runner issue that I need to share with with.
I am trying to record a script using Remote DeskTop Protocol, but the Remote connection crash when attempt to connect, I have not idea what could be the cause.
Any Idea on how RDP works with Load Runner?

I have LR 11.00 and RDP 8.0.

thanks,
Angel
