aw505 created the topic: Launcher Not Launching
First time user and attempting to run Login VSI 4.0.1 against a XenApp 6.5 farm. Using the express version. I have most of the configuration/install completed but when I go to start a test, the wizard does not allow me to enter in credentials on the launcher workflow screen (options are greyed out). I can still click next, but then when the Launcher check runs it sits in 'waiting' indefinitely. Any assistance is appreciated. I assume that since I haven't been able to enter in launcher credentials for the launcher service account it obviously can not create the session with the launcher. I'm not sure why the screen is greyed out or if I've done something incorrect.

Hi Aw505,

The launcher workflow is only available on Login VSI PRO therefore its greyed out. In that case what you have to do on the launcher machine is make sure that \\server\vsishare\_VSI_Binaries\Launcher\Agent.exe runs on your launcher machine. That will allow you to start a test. Also make sure sessionmonitor.exe is running.

Thanks Mark. That did the trick. Appreciate your quick response. It would be great to add that information into the admin guide in a future release for other people, so they don't run into that. I didn't see any references in the guide/documentation about that limitation with the Express version. It was an easy fix but hard to know to do it.

I will add that to the docs directly.

We have just upgraded from 3.7 and had the same problem. It's still not in the documentation, and really should be.

Best Regards

What our customers are saying

Bill Galloway - Pivot3

“The labs at Pivot3 have hundreds of machines. A portion of those are running different Login VSI configurations so we can be constantly configuring with different hardware to see how that affects desktops. Then we tweak the RAM and CPU, and tune so we know how many users we can support.”

Bill Galloway, Founder and CTO at Pivot3

Sajad Shah - Cancer Research

"Login VSI has empowered us to make more informed decisions on releasing a new vDisk which we now do on a monthly basis. We have found that Login VSI tests can also flag other issues in our environment that may not be picked up by our standard User Testing which allows us to either make the appropriate changes to the vDisk or workload script adjustments to run successful tests. This has given us peace of mind and allows us to release VDI’s with confidence."

Sajad Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at Cancer Research UK

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."
