We have acquired a WinRunner seat license for use on our application which is hosted in a citrix environment . Before I go on I know that the recommended licensing type is a site(floating) license but the company already bought the seat license before I came and now we dont have the budget for upgrading .
Ok so the question is what if we install WinRunner on one of the Citrix workstation ( not server) and have our citrix admin dedicate that workstation for only WinRunner use . Whenever the WinRunner user logs in he will get access to only that workstation . Since we are logging in to the same machine ,this would take care of the problem where every new session generates a new locking code .
Do you think this will work ?

From past experience you are going to have to install WinRunner on the server for the citrix sessions for WinRunner to see the objects of the application. If you install WR on one of the dummy terminals computers and launch the citrix session (in the case of the application being published) you are only going to see the application as one large bitmap

Hello! i have a question regarding WinRunner performance in Citrix. i have to execute WinRunner Scripts in Citrix and both AUT and WinRunner are installed in the Citrix Metaframe server, i acces the server remotely. but the problem is the execution is very slow. if i do execute the scripts in local workstation they are fast(ofcourse WR is installed in the local workstation also and access to application is through http). can anybody help me in solving this issue. i mean is this issue due to some kind of configuration missing or due to remotely connecting to Citrix
No - your question isn't the same. The original had to do with licensing and yours with performance. The subject line WAS the same. But arguably someone could just post one thread labeled "WinRunner," and EVERYONE coudl post to that!
If I knew the answer to your question I'd be happy to advise you.
