If you're like me and can't wait to have the latest and greatest version of software on your machine, you should be aware that, unlike previous upgrades, LR 11.50 has been modified to requires a new license.

Since current LoadRunner users cannot continue to use their existing licenses, you will need to generate a valid new one.

To Request a License you'll need to:

  • Navigate to:
  • Select your SAID number, click and LoadRunner under ‘Products' and click ‘View available products'

  • Select LR 11.50 and click ‘Get Software Update' button

  • You should now have a tab option for ‘Get Licensing'

      1. Joe Colantonio » Hi Bill just wanted to let you know that I did confirm with HP support: “For upgrades to PC 11.5 a new license is needed as well as for LR 11.5, this is because version 11.5 uses a different license technology.

  1. Hi Joe,
