renko created the topic: tests fail with Appfocus [Adobe] does not exist
I have tests failing with:

Script terminated [Appfocus [Adobe] does not exist waited for 120sec.], Script has stopped. User will not logoff

This was introduced after removing the "confirm overwrite" option in bullzip printing. What is strange is that it does not occur on all VMs. It does occur on about 90% of the VMs, regardless of the test size. The system is not overloaded so this is not the cause of the problem (running 25 vms tests on a system with a VSImax over 200).

I need the confirm overwrite option in bullzip disabled so I can minimize the number of stuck sessions during a high load test. How can I achieve the desired result?

Hello Renko,

Probably this issue is already fixed for you, but I also got this error when the configuration for the Office version is not correct. For instance when I had Office 2007 installed and the setting in Login_VSI was set to 14 (which is for Office 2010). Are you sure all VM's have the same Office version installed?

Kind regards,

What our customers are saying

Randy Groves - Teradici

"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”

Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici

Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"Ultimately, VDI is about performance. If a customer's virtual experience is not as fast as the physical experience, they don’t use it. Login VSI is great in helping us to really quantify and to show performance, to test systems and design those systems in such a way to ensure that you can deliver that kind of performance."

Kelly Murphy, CTO and Founder at HyperGrid

Johnny Blizzard - Health Insurance Organization

"We now have indisputable empirical proof supporting our claims. With Login VSI, we can run our own applications against various hardware platforms before we move to production! Application owners can see how their code impacts their users on our systems and we can present our findings to management for funding increases. We can also advocate for the users when supporting their claims of poor performance, all because of Login VSI."
