LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

[ Edited ]

We are testing an ASP .NET Ajax application using LoadRunner 9.5.
Scripting is performed with IE7 as of now, but the client is considering an option to make the app compatible with IE8 as well.

Not able to get a recording done with LR9.5- IE8. Browser window never gets launched during recording.

Would be great if anyone share your thoughts on the following questions

(i) Do we know if LR9.5 can be used to record IE8 browser actions with any available patches?
(ii) In most cases, IE8 will be opening 6 connections per host and only up from 2 in IE7. So Can LR9.5 emulate that behavior correctly if we record using IE7?

Thanks,
Raja Periannan

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

LR 9.5 is not compatible with IE 8 even with the latest patch 9.52. Attached is the readme for latest patch 9.52. for your reference.

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility


I have enetered this very question to HP support and was told Loadrunner 9.52 does not support IE8 nor Windows 7. R&D is working the issue but no roadmap/timeline from R&D has been given for when support will occur.

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

I got a reply from HP support that IE will be supported in LR11 which is the next version after LR9.52 There is no LR10 coming and LR11 is expected to come out by end of 2010.

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

Hi,

Just want to verify, what about if I installed the load generator on a machine using IE8 and will just use LR as a load generator for the controller. Will that work? Thanks!

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

There is a private patch which supports IE8 with limitations. Please contact HP support to get the patch.

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

Hi,

we are currently migrating from IE6 to IE8 and had the same problem.

But with changing the boot.ini we got LR 9.52 to work.

just add this entry to the boot.ini

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XPSP3 DEP OFF" /fastdetect /NoExecute=AllwaysOff

and use this when booting up to use LR with IE8.

Hope this will work for you too!

Kind regards

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

We took the new (beta) patch from HP support for LR9.52 that will work with IE8.

We are now able to record and replay our application in IE8.

Without the patch we were not even able to record a single event in LR..

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

Hi,

We are Testing Java/J2ee web applications in LR 9.5 using Web(HTTP/HTML) and Web (Click and Script) protocols.
We did the scripting using IE7 and all the scripts were tested successfully in Controller.

Now the cleint wants to switch to IE8. My Question is:

1. Is LR 9.5 compatible with IE8
2. Does all the scripts done using IE7 require rescripting while we change in IE8

Thanks

Re: LoadRunner 9.5 with IE8 compatibility

Hello All,

I would like to update you that LR 9.5.2 patch have to run on LR 9.5.1 and then your recording and replay option will work with IE8.

I tried it today on my machine and it worked out so no need to wait until LR 11.0

Let me know if you have any further questionnaire on it.
