HOWTO upgrade from Loadrunner 9.50 to 11?

I was just wondering what kind of conciderations needs to be made in order to upgrade from 9.50 to 11?

 

Is these the steps involved?:

  1. Remove Loadrunner 9.5
  2. Install Loadrunner 11
  3. Add license information (Can the same license used in 9.5 be used in 11? i thought i heard something about needing to convert license into newer format?)

Has anyone done the upgrade, who can shed some light on the upgrade process?

 

Thanks!

I have gone from V8.1 to V9.0 to V9.5 to V11 all without touching the licence.

The V9.52 to V11 install did its own uninstall of V9. The final install was not not great. All of the icons in Analysis disappeared and there are (stupidly) no menu options for these.

If you have your licence key safe, I would recommend uninstall and delete all registry entries. I have seen some on the web about this.

I have some clean installs of V11 all of which are fine.

Just be sure to install Patch 2 on LR11 after you are done.  There are significant fixes and enhancements in that patch.

Hi,

 

Is there any change to Load Generator component in LR 11. All I see the enhancement in Vugen (mostly graphics, icon), Controller and Report analysis and few new protocols. Was thinking if I can only update vugen and controller part and leave LoadGenerators as they are. But still carry on with my testing.

 

Any thought 

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Am going to Migrate/upgrade from  windows server 2003/LR 9.5  to windows Server 2008 R2/LR11.

Are there any known issues for LR11 on Windows Server 2008 r2? Do i need to install any patch for it?

 

and most importantly, What exactly i need to back up before i un-install LRv9.5 from windows server 2003.

Things like:

1) Scripts 2) License Screen shots 3) Host Id 

4) Any thing Else?????? i have my scripts on LRv9.5 that i need to transfer to LR11. So is there anything else Like Bin folder, to be copied from LRv9.5 before i un install.

 

Also like to know, if i can merge the 2 licences( for same protocol).

For eg: i already have 1500 web & multim. in LR 9.5 and i will apply the same on new LR11. I also want to buy another 1500 for web & Mult. so can i merge them and get total 3000 web & mult. on my new LR 11?

 

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hi,

 

In order to upgrade LR 9.50 to LR 11.00 , please remove LR9.50 , then install LR11.00.

Regarding license- LR9.50 license will work for LR 11.00 as well.

I have licence for LR9.5. After installing LR11 I cannot use original licence key. There is allways error message "Licence security violation" appears.

Do a "Clean install" as an admin and it will work. Well it worked for me.

Good luck
