LR 11 and Windows 7?

Hello All,

 

A question for you users or anyone at HP.   According to the requirements for LR 11, Windows 7 is not listed at all.   Can someone tell me when LR 11 will support Windows 7 and which flavor (32 v 64) for at least the VuGen and Analysis modes?

 

thx

    I have extracted LRv11 2 days back.

    What is the problem you are getting while extracting?

    i think you are probabally gettting error "Disk sapce full"..

    You can go through this link;

    VuGen doesn't support 64 bit OS. We tried to test with Windows 7 - 64 bit OS. but it recorded a blank page.

     

    I know it doesn't support, but is there any Work around to do it. In our company, they are gonna replace all the machines to windows 7 - 64 bit.

    i know 32 bit will work, Is anyone faced similar issue.

    Hi Bob,

     

    I recently upgraded my LR version 9.1 to version 11 and the new OS was Windos server 2008 R2 - 64 bit.

    I came to know that Vugen is not supported on 64 bit. I got in touch with Hp folks, and tried all possible ways to get a way out.

     

    Outcome was, you can not use Vugen on 64 bit, the only way out is to record the script on 32 bit OS (using some other 32 bit machine) and you can Execute, analyse the same on ur 64 Bit machine. I mean to say that you have to use your 64 bit machine only for Controller and Analysis but for recording part, you have to use some other 32 bit machine.

     

    Finally to come out of the situation i requested my Mgmt. to provide me 32 bit systems and they provided me with new windows server 2003 - 32 bit and i successfully installed LRv11 on it  :)

    Re: LR 11 and Windows 7?

    from LR 11 Patch 2 we support recording 32 bit apps on 64 bit system.

    for example:
    VUGEN on Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit can record 32 bit Internet explorer.

    Hi Moshka,

     

    Tried your above suggestion (patched up to patch 3) but unable to record still even when manually starting IE8 in 32bit mode.

    Re: LR 11 and Windows 7?

    Hi,

    Windows 7 is supported by LR 11. Be sure to have Windows Data Execution Prevention (DEP) set to at least "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only."

     

    Also, be sure that you do not have anti-virus/spyware software that may be interfering with LoadRunner. In many cases, adding an exception to the anti-virus software for LoadRunner will resolve those issues.

     

    Also, check your Windows UAC (User Access Controls) settings and your user permissions. From the LR 11 readme:

    • To run LoadRunner on Windows 7 or Window Server 2008, you must have Administrator privileges and User Account Control (UAC) must be disabled.

    Finally I want to address 64 bit support. LR 11 will work on a 64 bit OS. This includes Win 2008 and Win 7 64 bit. The catch is, even if installed on a 64 bit OS - LoadRunner/Vugen will only be able to record 32 bit applications. So, if you install LR on a 64 bit OS - you can gain added benefits such as larger memory recognition for the system - beter head space memory management for certain protocols - but you will only be able to record against a 32 bit app.
