Getting error after step 6.
Any help please
Try below options;
1. Try to Use MS Word 2003 instead of old or new versions.
2. On using 2003 still if you face error, try repair or reinstalling word alone.
As you are involved in an evaluation of LoadRunner prior to purchase I would suggest that you contact the VAR or Vendor systems' engineer who has been assigned to your evaluation of the product. They are the ones most familiar with your evaluation criteria as well as your environment and should be available to you during your trial to answer questions. They can also facilitate access to HP support during your evaluation period to address issues which may be environment related.

There are specific setups which are required in VMWARE environments to remove the influence of clock float on your results set. Your pre-sales systems' engineer can also provide you with the documents which indicate where and what you change in order to leverage the host system clock instead of the virtualized clock inside of the virtual machine (which floats off of the hardware clock).
Are you aware a LoadRunner specific forum exists on SQAForums for tool specific questions on LoadRunner?
( Moderator, please move this thread to the LoadRunner forum )
Thank you Mahesh for your reply, however i am not allowed to install Word2003 as these come pre-packaged along with the Windows image on the VM
Thank you for such a detailed reply jpulle3. I was not aware of that forum ..but from your note it sounds like we have one such. i will keep posting this kind of questions in the respective forum.
As you are involved in a pre-purchase evaluation of LoadRunner, your most appropriate support model is to contact your VAR or Vendor SE for their assistance in your evaluation. It is they who are most familiar with your environment, your particular skills and your evaluation criteria for LoadRunner to pass before you purchase the product. These individuals are also compensated to help you to be successful in your environment with their LoadRunner.
