Need help to Install new LR version 11.50 on top of 11.04

Hi Guys,

 

Need help to Install new LR version 11.50 on top of 11.04.

 

I downloaded the new LR version11.50 from HP site and aslo I ahve License  for that.

 

When I looked at the extracted folder(ISO) I see the setup under main folder  as  well under subfolder of English.

 

1.Do I need to unistall first 11.04 version?

2.Which one do I need to install?

3.I don’t see separate exe for Load Generator.

34. Do I need to copy whole folder gain to respective Load Generator machine to install those.

 

Please see the attached screenshot.

 

Please give me the prorper steps to installation.

 

Thanks,

Raj

Hi Raj,

 

If I were you I would uninstall the previous version of LR before installing the new version.

Then I would copy the installation files, of the new LR version, to all the machines where you wan't to install  loadrunner.

On each machine start the installation from the main folder.

 

LR11.50 provides:

- Full install

- VuGen standalone

- Analysis standalone

- Loadgenerator standalone

- Monitors over the Firewall standalone

- MI-Listener standalone.

 

If you wan't to use MQ-Tester, then it is better to do a full install instead of VuGen standalone.

The MQ protocols are not selectable if you wan't to use MQ-Tester with VuGen standalone.

 

Don't forget to install LR11.50 SP1 to upgrade to 11.51.

I am not sure if there are any patches for 11.51.

 

I hope this helps you a bit.

Hello Raj,

 

In your first post you wrote:

Copy these installation files to all your machines.

 

Quote: "When I looked at the extracted folder(ISO) I see the setup under main folder  as  well under subfolder of English ""

You we're asking about which setup to use e.g. main folder or subfolder of English.

I suggested to use the one from the main folder
