We have got some version 8.0 scripts but only have a version 7.0 license. Is there any way of running or converting these scripts so that they will run in version 7? The scripts were written in 'multi protocol web/ws' protocol in version 8.0 and our v7 license does include this protocol.
The error message i get when i try and open the scripts in v7 is "'multi' Vuser type is not supported".
Re: Using Loadrunner Version 8.0 scripts in version 7
Generally scripts are forward compatible and rarely backwardly compatible, particulary where major release levels are involved. APIs get deprecated and replaced with new ones. File format changes occur in virtual users, new types are added for which no complement exists in earlier releases.
Version 7.0 is so old that it likely will not run on any currently supported operating system for any vendor. Odds of success are close to zero on back porting, you would have no support options (QAForums != Product Support).
