Click and Script - Basic newbie question

2. What is the protocol you are recording?
Click and Script

No .. its click and script
4. If URL mode:

Not sure ..The version I have is LR 188.8.131.52
6. VuGen Recording - are you using Old or New Recording Engine?
The one that came with the version (I AM A NEWBIE)
7. What kind of LoadRunner license do you have -
8. If subscription, is subscription current or expired?
9. What platform(s) (PCs) and Operating Systems (Windows-XP, etc.)? Include version and service packs (SP1 or 2, etc.)
Hitting IE6.0 on Windows XP machine.
10. If you have filed a service request with HP/Mercury, what have they told you at this point with respect to your issue?
ISSUE IS: I am trying to get click and script working and I am stuck at a very basic level. I decided to try it on a well known site like gmail.com. I started recording, navigated to gmail, put in my username and password and logged in. Click on the "sent" items link and stopped the recording.
When I replay the recording the script generates an error after the log-in step .. basically it doesn't get the page after the login and hence any click or edit field fails as it can't find the object. error could be something like:
Error -26228: Text-link ("[xxxxxxxxxx]") not found
So I do not understand why Login fails. I am using Wininet and not sockets.
Re: Click and Script - Basic newbie question
Click and Script does not work on all applications/sites properly. In addition to that, you really shouldn't be testing against Google (or any other company's site) without their explicit permission. Your best bet is to go through the tutorials and use the Web Tours application provided with the LoadRunner installation.
As stated in the posting instructions, LoadRunner has a long learning curve. If you cannot get training, find an experienced and strong mentor. The best possible path to create a high probability that you and your customer will be successful and happy - is to get formal training. Really, there are no shortcuts to learning this elegant and complex tool.
Learning LoadRunner alone does not make one a performance tester or performance engineer. One should get training in the concepts of performance testing - irrespective of the tool used to conduct such testing.
