Add to this that for LR 7.6, network installation is not supported. Network Installation not supported in LoadRunner 7.6. See the below excerpt from M.I's support site. Can anything think of a good reason for all this other than getting the customers to fork over more $$?
"Starting with LoadRunner version 7.6 (target release date: Q1 2003), Network type installations are no longer supported - LoadRunner will only support "Standalone installation."

So what? Network install doesn't get you anything in terms of more
controllers or anything. It doesn't really get you anything except an

licensing and pricing is evil. Ever seen a "list price" for LoadRunner?

Performer and Rational Test Studio. And we're no
longer advising them against it.
PS: They quoted a price of nearly 60% of the VUD cost
for moving licenses from one state in the US to
