Where is LoadRunner for the Linux operating system is this??

gooselake(anon) | ‎11-19-2013 04:00 PM

Hi,

 

I installed Trial Version of HP Loadrunner  however I cannot get the Web Tours sample to come up so I can follow the steps.  It shows to access it by Start>All Programs>HP Software>HP LoadRunner>Samples>Web>HP Web Tours Application. It also say to make sure LR is installed in the "Default" folder or HP Web Tours will not open. When I installed the trial version the install default folder was already pre-populated. Any ideas why its' not working? COuld you provide the correct path?

thanks

| ‎11-20-2013 01:13 PM

Hi Gooselake, here it is:

 

  1. Start the Web Tours web server via: Start>Programs>HP Software>HP LoadRunner>Samples>Web>Start Web Server
  2. A console dialog will popup saying that the server is starting. Don’t close the dialog
  3. Now open the browser and browse to Web Tours via: Start>Programs>HP Software>HP LoadRunner>Samples>Web>HP Web Tours Application
  4. LR default installation folder is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\LoadRunner\", make sure the product is installed in this folder

 

Let us know if questions,

Silvia & Igor Markov
