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.

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.
- 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.

Copy these installation files to all your machines.

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
