I believe you already aware of recent changes in Micro Focus products. It has been couple months since LoadRunner Professional 2020 has announced. Couple days ago, Micro Focus has released its first service pack of LoadRunner Professional and LoadRunner Enterprise. In this blog post, we will see what’s new in Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional 2020 Service Pack 1.
Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional 2020 Service Pack 1
This service pack release is more focused on DevWeb protocol. I do not see any noticeable improvements in Virtual User Generator software. But there are updates and enhancements on the protocol front.
DevWeb in VuGen
As you know, DevWeb is a brand new protocol offering from Micro Focus. In this service pack release, following features are the highlights.
- Replay Summary Pane
- New CookieExtractor
- Extended WebSocket support
- Dynatrace AppMon Monitoring support
- Kerboros Authentication in replay
- write and isExists to File operations
- Other improvements and security fixes
Port forwarding in VTS
Truclient Native Mobile now supports UFT Mobile server integration using Oauth2
Automatic upgrade of web services scripts generated by Axis/.NET toolkits to WCF
Security handlers for scripts by WCF will no longer depend on WSE.
Supports record and replay with the Citrix Workspace client
LoadRunner Enterprise Integration
This service pack supports upload and download from VuGen to LoadRunner Enterprise. Also you can open and edit LoadRunner Enterprise scripts.
VTS now handles more concurrent Vusers.

You need to create an account which is free. Scroll down to Releases section and then click on GET IT button as shown below.
Hit Save File (in Firefox). EXE file is 1.1 GB.
After downloading it, you need to extract it.
But the default extraction process has failed in my Windows 10 Home. Below is my system specification.
I was getting below error “There is not enough space on drive C:\ to extract this package”. But I was having more than 100 GB in my SSD.
I was able to fix this issue using 7z software. VuGen exe file extraction using 7z solves my above issue.
Have you upgraded to the latest version? Please let me know in the comments.
