My company is switching from WR 6.02 to the latest and greatest WinRunner. Will we be able to use the scripts that were built on 6.02? Or, will we have to start all over? Or, is there just some minor tweaking , if any, to make the current scripts compatible with with the latest WR? Also, what are the limitations on 6.02 on Windows XP and are there any patches available to make this version compatible with this OS? What would the limitations be?
I would appreciate everyone's opinions on these questions!
You should not have any problems with your scripts. There should be backward compatibility here.
Have you guys consulted with MI's first though?
Windows XP, I do not know of limitations with this OS. Of course you can check MI's most comprehensive support site at:
and I assume that you are already enlisted there. If not then subscribe soon.
WR 7.6 has some patches in it's data base at MI.
BTW, are you "gemarti" from EE web site? XP's
I don't think you'll have many, if any, problems with the scripts. But I'm curious about a couple of things:
1) Why do you care if 6.02 will run on XP if you're going to 7.5 anyway?
2) Why 7.5 rather than 7.6? (I have a good reason for us not to upgrade, but unless your AUT is Oracle 11i Apps, that probably wouldn't apply to you).
I have found that in some applications WR handles objects differently from version to version. A maintenance cycle to catch all of these and update your gui maps will be necessary.
