  2. Navigate to [HP Software folder] \AddIns\VuGen\FrontEnd\VuGenLanguageBindings
  1. Always take a backup of the original file HP.LR.VuGen.VuGenLanguageBindings.dll
  2. Extract the zip file and apply HP.LR.VuGen.VuGenLanguageBindings.dll from the attached file.
  3. Check if the script will save successfully.

How to apply this fix in VuGen 12.00 and 12.01?

There is no DLL fix in VuGen 12.00 and 12.01. You need to use simple string without any special characters such as  “(“, “ %”, “#”, “/”, “- “,  “+”

For example:
lr.save_string(“ORA Parse Count Hard”, “ORA Parse Count(#/s) ” + instance);

then use the parameter in the VuGen function:
lr.user_data_point(lr.eval_string(“{ORA Parse Count}”), oracle.getPerSecondValue(“parse count”));
