Browser Not Launching During Recording Using Loadrunner

Loadrunner or Vugen not Launching in Internet Explorer (IE)?

Your loadrunner not launching the Internet Explorer? Check out the following options.
  • Check your loadrunner software is compatible with the current version of Internet Explorer.
  • Close all the browsers before you record any application.
  • Check in the Task Manager  and see if browser process (iexplorer.exe) is running before start of recording. It should be running. Sometimes killing explorer.exe and start recording.(it sometime helps).
  • Completely disable the DEP from windows as shown in the following figure. Follow this link to disable DEP completely.
  • Do you have all the administrative privileges if not atleast try to use “Run as Administrator” if you are using windows 7 or any new version.
  • Have you installed antivirus in your system. Some DLL files might be stopping the vugen to open the browser. Use Process Explorer Software and try to see if any dlls are stopping the browser. If possible disable the antivirus completely for some time.
Still not working, it’s time to repair loadrunner or uninstall loadrunner and install it again.  Go to Control Panel - Uninstall a program and click on repair or uninstall.

If it is still not working time to contact  HP Support.
